“Fall Foliage Delight”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

If you decide to bit the bulltet and pay the price for the gondola, consider the Family Pack which includes a generously packed homemade lunch! My girls and I had a surprisingly delightful time riding the gondola up to the peak, sitting and enjoying our picnic lunch, walking around a bit, and then heading back down. Just make sure to pack a picnic blanket and use the restroom before you head up!

“Fun trip to the top”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We took the gondola ride to the top of the mountain. Fun time and great views. There is a webcam on top so let your family know and you can wave to them. We did not do the zipline but everyone seemed to enjoy that too.

“Watch Out! Abrupt Stop on the Fun Zipline!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

My husband and kids, ages 10 and 13 loved the zipline ride and wished they had time to go on more zipline rides. There is a discount ticket price when you go on the zipline again. The staff does warn you of the abrupt stop at the end of the ride, but it still shocked my husband and kids.
We went to the mountain for the Frog Pond Naturalist event on Tuesday mornings in the summer. This was perfect for our 10 year old who loves every living critter. Even my husband and I learned something new. We would not recommend this for toddlers or older teens. We strongly recommend you wear deet for Lyme protection, as you will be walking through tall grass and woods. We also recommend you wear rubber boots, thought it is not necessary.

“Wildcat Views”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Want White Mountain views without the hike try the gondola at Wildcat. Awesome views for no effort. Lots of black flies at the top so if you plan on spending sometime bring bug spray. Staff friendly and courteous.
