This once use to be a gem, but sadly no longer. In its hay day, this use to have tons of resturants, shows, shops and entertainment - and was family friendly. Not sure what happened, but this place has been struggling for years. It is down to a hand full of shops. Not worth the time, sadly.

Took my 5 year old to Heritage Square to ride the alpine slide. We both had a wonderful day. There's a little bit of everything for everyone. Hands down, the slide was his favorite, but the go carts, roller coaster and maze were his favorites. We will be back.

The view is beautiful from the top of the slides, but that's where the compliments end. Not even close to worth the expensive price tag. The place needs some major improvements. Half of the "shops" are vacant, and the other half smell like old vacant barn. The staff was very nice, but mostly high school or college age kids, just... More

We visited after a rain storm. Obviously due to safety we were not able to ride the slide for about an hour. No big deal. We waited to purchase tickets as they were not on sale until it was "safe" to ride. There were staff in the picnic area or waiting area for the slide who were chillin eating. I... More

I rode the Alpine Slide for the first few times today and love it. A chair-lift brings you to the top of the hill and you ride the cart down. Speed is adjusted by pulling back on the brake lever - which I did very sparingly. My wife video-recorded my trip down and I was obviously going much faster than... More

I had read several reviews of this, and thought this amusement park would be mostly geared toward kids younger than mine (12 and 8). But there are several things here that my kids have enjoyed - the alpine slide, the ropes course, the maze, a rock wall, bungee jumping, and giant hamster balls. There is no admission fee (which is... More

They have a great little amusement park for the kids. The alpine slide is the most fun! The little quaint shops are great. You can find the best little gifts to take back home for those that couldn't make it with you. It is a little run down and couls use some paint.

Heritage square is fun place for all ages. The alpine slide is so much fun. If I had to choose my favorite thing, I would choose the rope course. It is big and fun and the line goes fast. There are so many fun obstacles. They are a little bit hard but as long as you stay calm you will... More

Kids LOVED the Alpine Slide (ages 6 and 9) and the chairlift up. The hamster balls and rope maze were hits too. Six adult rides on the slide and 2 child cost more than $60. Two 3 ride passes and two adult rides cost $64. The town itself was old and a lot if the stores were closed on a... More

The alpine slide was $8 per person. we.took out 10 year old and it was fun for children and adults alike. The ski lift was enjoyable and afforded beautiful views. The ride down was a blast. I would do it again.
