Having now been to both adventure parks at Vail and Breckenridge, I strongly suggest Breckenridge for children under 10 or 11. The Vail adventure park is better suited for teenagers and up. Plus, the gondola ride to the Breckenridge park is free and at Vail...More

This is our second year taking the boys to Adventure Ridge. They enjoy the ropes courses, tubing, and the coaster. This year my older son really got into the rock climbing. Definitely like the new location of the rock climbing wall.

Either be early or late or wait in long lines getting cold at the top of the mountain. There were clearly not enough staff to get tourists through the safely briefings.

The roller coaster through the snow was fun and the tubing was a hit with the kids but at $25 each coaster ride per person plus $45 each per person for 3 tub rides this place is ridiculously expensive. $280USD for an hour of fun....More
