The chairlift ride to the the top of the slide is very relaxing and peaceful. The sled was big enough for my husband and 3 year old daughter to ride together. I like that you can control how slow and fast the sled goes. I...More

My 8 year old rode this from 11am-8pm. He had a blast. The staff were so kind and friendly. Joking with him and giving him tips on make his slide run faster. But also kept safely as a top concern. Definitely recommend.
