“Great day.”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

My daughter did the zip line and loved that. We hikes from Vail gondola to the Lionshead gondola and it was beautiful! We loved our lunch on adventure ridge (BBQ) and the Gondola rides. The gondola rides from the villages fool you....it looks like it doesn't go up very far but trust me, there is a whole lot you cannot see! Worth the visit!!

“Plan and reserve early”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We didn't actually get to tube because it was quickly sold out on the days we tried. Buying advance tickets was inconvenient and we got inaccurate information over the phone. Unless you want to pay a hefty fee for the gondola, you need to plan to tube on a day when you are also skiing. So it's not a cost effective activity when you take a day off from skiing.

“The Gondola price is a total joke.”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

We love tubing at adventure ridge and usually go when we do our ski holiday. This time, we just wanted to visit adventure ridge and do some tubing. Even though the website says it operates starting at 12 noon, it omits the additional $18 pp gondola charge to get up to the hill of you want to go between 12 and 4 pm. Added to the $38 pp tubing charge, that is $55 to go tubing. Total ripoff.

“Absolutely must go”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We went to Adventure Ridge again this year and they have added a new attraction - zipline. It is Ok for $20 we paid. My kids loved tubing and snowmobiling better.
Be sure to buy the tickets in advance, tubing sessions start every 30 min and 4-6pm sessions get sold out quickly
