We researched this place before coming and had decided on the adventure tour. It was two adults and a 16yr old girl. Firstly my biggest advice I could offer is to come early! We arrived on a Thursday at 9am and were second in line....More

Enjoyed the sights and overall experience. Our family did the adventure trail and premium package. The rope course/adventure trail was lots of fun but the waiting an hour to be in a raft that doesn't really do anything more than the tubes was a bummer.

Nice excursions with young kids! Easy to walk and not too long! Very impressive to see the elephant head walking down the river!

Drove up from Lake Placid to explore the chasm with our kids. We have one over 4' and one under 4', so we were limited in the options we could partake in together. We did the River Walk (new this season), raft float, and the...More

You can take the rim walk for the 3-year old. The stairs walk requires more coordination. We went there when our twins were 6 and took the stairs and bridges walk (lower walk) and they did great. The rim walk is a walk... More

We had changed in the bathroom of the center before and after a bus ride to the start. A waterproof bag w a towel (and a beer) would've been a great addition. Esp since you're in line for a bit before getting on the river.
