We were recommended to check out Epic Discoveries and so happy we did! We went in a large group (10ish) and arrived early to take advantage of the whole day which was a good idea since it got cloudy in the afternoon and they were starting to shut some attractions down. The coaster is so much fun! We also did... More

This resort at the top of the Vail Mountain has a number of attractions. We bought Ultimate Adventure Pass (~$89) which allowed access all the attractions. It was very well worth it. Zip lining is a must for anyone a little adventurous. The Forest Flyer is a nice roller coaster - you can control your own car's speed. We went... More

During the summer, for $34 one can buy a pass for both gondolas mid-Vail and Lion's head, which is good for the entire day. Beautiful views at the top of both, but the views are better at the top of the Lion's Head gondola (plus there's an adventure park up there). We ate burgers and fries and drank a mojito... More

It is a great ride up to the top but it is a shame that you are not able to pay for the activities one by one. We wanted to go on the alpine slide but were told we would have to buy a $90 ticket which would allow us to go on all activities. We told them to hat... More

We got the Vail Summer Adventure pass. It was a cloudy day and we got to do just a couple of the activities because they closed the mountain due to storms coming. We were lucky in that there were almost no lines and so we greatly enjoyed our 1.5 hour on the mountain. We were disappointed to not get to... More

Just going up the mountain with the gondola is an experience in itself. The view over Vail village is beautiful but even that is overshadowed by the majestic mountains and wild life on the mountain. We spent almost 2 hours at the top of the mountain because it is definitely food for the soul. It was a gorgeous fall day... More

Delightful ride to the top of the mountain. There is an adventure park at the top with many activities if you are so inclinded and of course many hiking and biking trails.

We're from the East Coast and I thought this would be like Vermont (which I think is lovely). This is totally different. It has an Swiss feel to it. It's so quaint you'd swear you are in Europe. We stayed in Breckenridge and made a day trip and enjoyed lunch. We were shocked how cool the mountains were in August!... More
