We were in the Black Hills area the weekend before Labor Day weekend. My son wanted to do the zip line and Alpine slide. We drove from Rapid City on Monday Aug. 25, only to find a hand written note stating they were closed until Labor Day weekend. Would of been nice to know ahead of time like maybe on... More

We got to the top of the alpine slide and the kid that was in charge of helping us get onto the slide was more interested in his iPhone then us... Really?? Ask how I was suppose to get on it. And was told very rudely to sit on it! I think they need to make a rule that all... More

The ride is what you make of it. It can be a great few minutes if you pick up speed and feel the rush, or it could be pretty boring if you ride the brake all the way down. I had to go with my 6 yr old, so I let us gain some speed and we had a great... More

We had no idea of the little town right outside of visiting Mt. Rushmore - the town of Keystone is awesome and quaint. We only had time for the Alpine slide. Take a ride up the chair lift and enjoy the views. There is so much to do. There are two slides even a designated side for slower riders. But... More

We only did the Alpine slide once (we spend all our time at the adventure park next door) but we wished we had more. You could easily do this slide several times and not get bored. Watch the weather as they don't give refunds and rain is an issue in this area.

Myself, husband and our two sons (13 & 5) decided to do the tram up the mountain and the alpine slide down. We had sooo much fun!! My husband and 13 year old son road by themselves but my 5 year old road with me which is required due to his age. He pretty much sat on my lap and... More

We go to every alpine slide we find. This is our 3rd set. Although I think they should have better rules and restrictions on who can ride by themselves. There were several younger children that should have been riding with an adult. My kids love these slides, but I would not let them ride by themselves yet.

Great scenery at the top of the slide and a view of Mount Rushmore. It is worth the trip for the view even if you don't want to slide down.

We took our three kids down this slide and they really enjoyed it. My boys didn't break at all until the end and made it safely down. There is a slow lane for two riders or those that don't want to go too fast. I would recommend this.

We enjoyed it so much, we went 3 days in a row! Nice chair lift ride to the top, where there is a restaurant and nice scenic views. The ride down is fun - you can go as fast or slow as you want. I think this was my son's highlight of our vacation here.
