“Lots to do”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

There was so much to do we should have gone earlier. The kids loved the "backyard" maze. We then took the gondola to the top of the mountain which was so nice. The caves up on top were great for the kids, we went too but they were a little harder for adults to navigate. If you don't mind getting dirty it was fine though. Had a snack at the top of the mountain,we were hoping to get a sandwich or something up there but they actually close down about an hour before the mountain closes. We could get drinks and a candy bar though. We didn't get to do the zipline or the aerial park. Would love to go back and do them. But beware it is a little pricey.

“many things to do even in the summer.”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

The zip line over the river was great. The gondola ride to the top and the view from the top was good. Also on top they had caves(more like rocks that had formed passages through them), which the kids lived crawling through. Overall a good time but a bit pricey.

“Fun!!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Awesome! The aerial park is so challenging even for us (age 23/22). The gondola is fun, awesome views, and you get out at the top and can either walk around and head to the summit cafe (yum) or go to the caves which is pretty darn cool. We liked how safe everything was and how nice the staff was also. Would go again.

“Awesome views!!!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Took the gondola ride to the top of Loon Mtn and enjoyed beautiful views of the surrounding moutains. The ride up and down takes about 15 mins each way. We were lucky enough to see small sections of where the foiliage was starting to break through. Good hiking up top, my sons enjoyed the glacial caves the most.

We're glad you were able to see some early foliage. Come back in another month or so and the trees should be incredible!

“Awesome!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We did the super pass which included the aerial park and other features. The Aerial park was worth the entire amount we paid. My family of 5 (two adults, a 14, 13 and 11 year old) had a great time getting warmed up on the green circle course and moved on to the blue square course which really challenged my 13, 11 year old and me (mom) but after that, my husband and 14 year old went off to the black diamond course which ended with an injury (cut finger) to the 14 year old on the very last element. The younger two and I went and did the yellow circle course (easiest) and were pretty well spent. Loved every minute of the challenge of the obstacles and the rush of the ziplines. After we went and did a rock wall climb (4 of us) and bungee trampoline (11 year old) and then went to the top with the gondolas. Saw some wild turkeys on the way up which was cool. At the top we had a snack and then did the caves. The view was great. Back down on the gondolas and did the zip line at that point. They take safety very seriously and even though the employees are all young (college aged), they were all very thorough. After, more rock wall climbing, more bungee trampoline, the 11 year old went into the spider maze, we called it a day without the bike ride...worth every penny and the highlight of our trip to Lincoln, NH...I would call this a must do!
