We enjoyed this stop but everything at the top is an additional cost. We paid for the bracelets that covered everything. The alpine slide is fun. Definitely take the chairlift to the top for incredible views! A playground and small rides are available for young children.

The view going up and down was beautiful and breathtaking, although once at the top unless you are adventurers and have some guts to take the rides on the roller coasters and such ,not much to do for us. We did go to the wildlife area but that was more or less the extent of our activity. We did walk... More

The trip up the mountain is very enjoyable. The views are beautiful. Even if you do not use the amusement area, the ride is worth it. Tickets are good all day and you reuse the tickets during the day. We took a ride in the afternoon then in the evening for the sunset.

The tram takes you up to see the beautiful views that lay below. It is about a 10 minute ride in an enclosed tram. On a note of caution, if one is afraid of heights or of enclosed and cramped spaces, the drive up the mountain in a car might be a better choice. Once there the views are spectacular.

Took the tram from town up to the recreation area. I really had no idea what to expect at the top, but wanted to check out the ski resort. What a nice surprise to find a new alpine coaster! I liked it even better than the highly rated alpine coaster in Pigeon Forge. We took the chairlift to the peak... More

We had such a wonderful experience from the start. Whitney, in group sales, was such a pleasure to work with. The views on the tram were incredible. The slide was so much fun, we went multiple times. If you have to choose between the coaster and the slide, I recommend that you choose the slide. You get to ride the... More

Lovely ride up. The animal enclosure was a little sad. The animals did not look happy and their spaces are not very big. Lot of places to look out inside.
