I took my four kids (ages 6, 8, 12, 14) and every one of us had fun! We purchased a 2 hour ticket and that was just about perfect. My kids were cold, tired, and done at the end. The rides downhill were fast but I felt safe and wasn't worried about my youngest getting hurt. We will do this again. I've heard the lines can get long but when we went, it took about 20 minutes to get from the bottom to the top and back down again.
