“Timber Twister”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Loved it. Would do again
You ride down a coaster at your own speed. Can ride double if you have children. They pull you back up. Ride through the trees down the mountain.

“Fun in the Sun!”

A neat little find up in the hills! Went on a neat rollar coaster that only you control the speed! Also went on the Zip line which is made for two! A neat experience!

“Best in the Midwest for Snowboarding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Spirit Mt has the overall best, most unique, longest, and largest array of hills to ski/snowboard down in the winter. I've been to Upper Michigan, Mont De Lac, and Lutsen, and Spirit tops them all. Although I can imagine it does't compare to Upper California or Colorado at all, it is a good place to have some winter fun in Duluth. Suitable for families, but keep in mind there are a lot of young, thuggish type snowboarders. Most of them are completely undangerous -- it just seems to be a hotspot for youth because of the lack of other winter activities for kids in Duluth.

“Do not brake!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We went on a Friday evening, and the wait time was very short.. 2 seats per cart (can ride single though).. seat belts for safety.. cart is attached to rails.. I would encourage to run at full speed through the ride (all momentum based).. dips and curves down the Duluth hillside.. very nice view of the harbor at one point.. ride is not very long (couple minutes), and you get ferried back up the hill while remaining in your cart, so no tiring walk back to the top.. staff very helpful as well..
