Entrance is free. For the rides you buy tickets first and then use a number of tickets to pay for the rides. The number of tickets needed caries per ride. There are some old style rides which still give lots of fun to the children. For the not so small children there is still lots of fun. The number of... More

We spent 2 days here. Kids had lots of fun ages 9 and 11. Adults had fun too. Not a bunch of thrill rides or rollercoasters more rides for young children but plenty to do as adults. We enjoyed the bumper boats, zip line , go carts and alpine slides, and miners maze, bungee jumping and rock climbing. Lots of... More

It is a great place to take kids or teens to the alpine action, or you can take a date there as a jumping of point. I think that everone should ride the Alpine slide once in there lives. So it is something that I always take out of towners to. Well even people as far away as denver or... More

Spent about three hours Labor Day afternoon with our son and grandkids (3 and 5) having a great time at the Amusement Park. All of the rides were great fun although some of the rides had a few of the seats/vehicles that did not work. Lines were not very long and the young ladies/gentlemen that ran the attractions were friendly... More

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
