My husband and I went to Adventure Ridge with our two grandchildren, ages 12 and 8. It was the first time there for all of us. Under duress, I tried the zipline. I thought I would be scared, but it was not exciting or thrilling at all. It was expensive, though, and that did get my adrenaline going. Then, my... More

Best to be the first up when they open, no lines, no waiting. Instructors were very good with instructions and safety. Ropes course for 30 or 60 minutes and three levels, green, blue and black. Me and my 9 year old did the greens and blues and after 45 minutes my arms were tired so stopped. This is self paced... More

After our initial sticker shock of our $200 tickets for our sons to do 3 activities each, plus a gondola ride to top of mountain for the 4 of us, we had a great afternoon. This was first zip experience for both of my sons, ages 10 and 11, and the scenery was stunning. We ended up getting a refund... More

We went to Adventure Ridge because it seemed to have something for everyone---we were wrong. Our 8 year old was only able to do baby events and the adult zip line was extremely expensive to only have one line! The one positive was the adult ropes course which our 10 year old loved---our 8 year old was too small. You... More

Had such a great time taking our teenagers to Adventure Ridge! From the Gondola ride overlooking the amazing beauty of Vail to the zip line, it was well worth the money. Especially appreciated the staff on the zip line. I must admit I was a bit anxious and the crew that ran the zip line made me feel relaxed. Austin... More

If you are afraid of heights or are bothered by turbulent airplane rides, then you should avoid the motor tour. It's a bumpy and dusty 45 minutes up to and across the top of the mountain. Great views of Vail Valley and Holy Cross mountain, although the views from the starting point at Adventure Ridge are almost as good. The... More

Adventure Ridge is great! It is a must do activity for anyone visiting Vail. If you can, hike up the mountain to get to the top or take the gondola. The ropes course at the top is great for all ages. Think we loved it as much as the kids. There is a play area for kids, a small museum,... More

My daughter did the zip line and loved that. We hikes from Vail gondola to the Lionshead gondola and it was beautiful! We loved our lunch on adventure ridge (BBQ) and the Gondola rides. The gondola rides from the villages fool you....it looks like it doesn't go up very far but trust me, there is a whole lot you cannot... More

We went to Adventure Ridge again this year and they have added a new attraction - zipline. It is Ok for $20 we paid. My kids loved tubing and snowmobiling better. Be sure to buy the tickets in advance, tubing sessions start every 30 min and 4-6pm sessions get sold out quickly
