We were there the week before Memorial Day. I recommend getting the wrist band to ride the attractions all day. We really enjoyed the mountain roller coaster, it was fast and fun and we rode it until they closed the park at 5:00. The 7D shooting ride was fun. If you have smaller kids they might be scared by the... More

My little one love the coaster and the cave. She did perfect because we could go slower on the coaster. My husband loved the coaster too, but he went as fast as he could! We all had fun exploring the cave. I would totally recommend this place to families!

Kids will love this. The wrist band is by far the best way to go. If you pay for one thing, chances are you will want to do it again, so just buy the wristband for a day pass.

We had a great time! We chose the wrist band option and definitely got our money's worth in the 3 hours we spent there. The customer service was top notch and our tour guide Trevor was awesome, very knowledgeable and made the tour fun for all ages!

Many different activities to choose from, or do them all! We started out doing the Rushmore cave tour, which the family loved. Then we did the zip line (very cool, you're seated and go down a decent sized hill) and the gunslinger 3-D shooting game (also a big hit) - just like a video game, in a large theatre, you... More

This place was great. The cave tour was fun and the young man leading the tour did a great job. We road the mountain coaster and that was a BLAST. They offer fantastic combo tickets for just about everything. Mountain coaster. Ziplines. Cave tour.

First up- it's a lot of walking and stairs and hills. Not for the mobility-challenged, although it would be easy to get to the mountain coaster. Apart from that, I just took a lot of breaks walking up steps and hills. Well worth just getting the wristbands. We loved all of it, the coaster was amazing and worth the price... More

A traditional Cave tour, zip line, interactive video game and a new Mountain side coaster are all available as choices at the adventure park. My teenagers loved the place and we spent most of a day. Be advised that stairs and steep hill sidewalks connect the attractions. Groups with mobility needs will want to plan ahead and contact the venue... More

Went during a spring break weekend when it wasn't busy, and had a blast. The owners have made a tremendous investment in this place, and have done an amazing job of it. This place is home to a mountain coaster, still somewhat rare in the USA, but a huge improvement on the 80s-style alpine coasters both in terms of fun... More
