Alpine Slide (Timber Twister) is Awesome. The beautiful view of forest while on the ride is spectacular. I would definitely recommend to anyone in the spring to early fall season, but do except longer wait times on really nice days. The zip line, I would try at least once, and that is really all you would need. The ride should... More

Spirit Mountain might not have a ton of runs or super challenging courses, but it is about 2 hours away from the the Twin Cities and is great for driving up for a day or weekend of fun. The lodge is great and they seem to have decent drink (beer) specials. It's also close to Downtown Duluth where you can... More

If you want to learn how to ski or board, this is a good hill. The bunny hill is right next to the chalet. And once you master that without falling, the easier runs are close as well. If you're planning a ski trip west, Spirit Mountain is also a good place to warm up the legs and tune the... More

What a fun ride and it's great for all ages as you can control your speed. Our girls would have gone 10x if the line hadn't been too long. Definitely a fun stop on your drive through Duluth!

We have been here once before but stopped by again with our adult children and their spouses. We had a blast on the coaster. This is not an alpine slide where the "sled" rides on a concrete track. This one is actually like a roller coaster where there are rails. There aren't any steep areas like on a traditional coaster... More

My husband and I went without kids, which made this activity affordable. The alpine slide was a blast and I wished my kids had been with us for that. A fast, exciting ride that the rider is able to control the speed...fast and no brakes was awesome! We also took a scenic ride down and up on the chairlift. It... More

Timber Twister is very fun, went in September and there was no lines. Easy enough for our 8 year old granddaughter to go by herself and thrilling enough for all of us. Enjoy the ride back to the top! Zip Line - short and fast. Great for someone who is afraid of heights but wants a fast thrill. Maybe not... More

Maybe not to someone else but there were six of us. The Bobsled run is worth the price. You go down at your own pace --mostly fast! the ride back up the hill is really super neat also The older one (me) liked that part the best. Some tried the zip line which really isn't a zip line---you sit in... More
