We did not stay at the resort but did stop by to do the activities. Our boys did the Mountain Coaster twice and could not stop taking about it. They also did a ropes course and zip line that they loved. The prices were reasonable and it was not crowded. Next time, we hope to stay at the hotel.

In the summer, there is a ropes/zipline course in varying difficulties, and other activities. These are however, very pricey and you'll run out of money quickly. The mountain coaster is a unique ride and takes you down the mountain through a wooded area. You can rent bikes, play disc golf, golf, hike, Segway or ride the chair lift to the... More

First time family zip lining...stretches of 400+ line! My 10yr olds needed extra persuading once we were up & both guides were extremely patient! Everyone is ready to go again!

We decided to do the roller coaster which is expensive but worth it. My boys 3 and 5 loved it and road it 3 times with their Dad. The other rope courses and other activities really for kids over the age of 8.

We just returned from a trip to Deep Creek Lake and I think our family would agree that our day spent at Wisp Mountain was one of the best. The four of us (two adults and two teenagers) all ventured through the Canopy Tour which was so much fun and just as much scary! The wait time on each platform... More

Enjoyed the mountain coaster. I was the only person on the whole ride so could go and whatever speed I wanted. Wouldn't have been so happy if the ride was busy. Fun concept though.

We went there and did the mountain coaster and geo tracking. We had a group of about 12 people including 3 kids 6 and under. The kids loved the coaster. You control how fast you go. You can do doubles or singles. But for doubles you can basically only do that if you have a child bc there are weight... More

The condition, number of slopes, etc seem comparable to Canaan or Timberline. I would put it a step above Winterplace and a step below Snowshoe. It wasn't too crowded when we went, but you could tell there had been a lot of people on it that day. Not a bad place to spend a day or two though.

My husband and I and the younger children did the Spider Monkey course . My one daughter completed it. My other daughter got too scared to continue, and the... More
