The family had a great time. We went in October so it was actually the last week they were going to be open before shutting down for the season. Due to this ticket prices were 30% off a nice little surprise. Bought the unlimited wrist bands that allowed you to go on all the rides as much as you want including the cave tour. The cave tour was cool. Very informative. Kids had a blast on the mountain coaster. There weren't many people at the park since the weather was kind of bad so they were able to ride it over and over with no line. Staff was very friendly and prices weren't bad, Very clean and well put together place.

Definitely worth a visit while you’re in Keystone. The cave tour was great. Took about an hour total. The other attractions are fun for children. The 4 hour pass is worth it. Great way to spend half a day.

Overall the place was great. The mountain coaster was so fun and a real intense ride (could take it slow since you control the brake). We also enjoyed the zipline and cave activities. They had great signage, hand sanitizer, and practices in place to be in compliance with covid restrictions. Our tour guide did not make everyone keep their masks on while in the cave which was the only negative of our whole experience.

GIven the current climate, I'd like to mention that SD generally does not require masks (only social distancing) and this facility does not require masks, except during the cave tours. We arrived there around 2 pm on Sunday (10/3). We knew it was only open at Thursday-Sunday at this time and closed at 5pm, but thought that was enough. It wasn't. We did the Rushmore Cave Tour (main reason for the trip), 7D games, Gemstone Panning and the Rush Mountain Coaster. They also have the Zipride or the Wingwalker Challenge Course, which we hadn't experience. The Cave Tour is timed, so I'd suggest selecting your time and getting your tickets upon arrival if that's something you're interested - and I highly recommend it (this is our first cave tour). My 12-year-old who's been dying to visit a cave LOVED it! He was right behind the our tour guide, Jesse (who was phenomenal), taking photos and asking questions every step. I also enjoyed the beauty of the caves, whether it's the narrow passage ways, or the great open rooms/caves. It was pretty easy for the most part, but there were some areas where the steps were a little slippery because of the limestones. There was a little time before our Cave Tour time, so we headed to the 7D game. The games were similar to Disney's 3/4D rides, but there's shooting involved. We had fun and ended up going through it three more times after the tour. (There are three themes, but only two were open when we went.) My son also did the gemstone panning while we waited. Though it only took like 5 minutes, the gem stones completely filled the little pouch that came with the purchase. At about 4:15 pm we decided to head down to the coaster. My son was a bit nervous but ended up loving the ride. We went back three more times. It was safe and fun. You have absolute control of the speed and can go at the pace you're comfortable with. If you prefer to go the full speed of 30 mph, I would suggest giving a little more distance between you and the person before you (past first loop). Since this is the off season, there really wasn't much of a wait for the rides we went on - about 5-ish minutes. If you're interested in the other experiences, I would recommend giving yourself about 4 hours - especially if you have kids. We didn't have time to experience two things, and wished we had more time for the 7D and coaster rides. Another thing I'd like to note is that there are quite a few stairs - steep too - to reach the top, where the Cave Tour was. So I would plan your rides before heading up - don't think you'd want to go up & down repeatedly. Lastly, for us, this visit paired up perfectly Mount Rushmore as we didn't need much time looking at the sculptures.

Rush Mountain is an adventure park with four rides, a zip line, alpine coaster, 7D movie, and a ropes course along with a cave tour. We got the 4 hour wristband that let you do anything for 4 hours. This may be something they are doing because of COVID along with limited attendance. Our time was short but there were few lines. The zip line had a slow moving line and was not that impressive. The alpine coaster is much better. It is on a track so you can't fly off but you can control your own speed so everyone can do this, The ropes course has a nice mix of easier and harder features, and with few people you could do them all as many times as you liked. The 7D movie is an interactive shoot-them-up, with a few choices of movies, which were fun. The cave is not that special if you have seen other caves. There is one room with good features, and the cave has unusual red and purple rock. Worth a visit if in the Rushmore area and like this sort of thing.
