We (my 42 year old hubby, my 38 year old self, and our 5th grader daughter) did a combination Aerial and Adventure Park pass, which allowed us 2 1/2 hours on the high ropes course and the rest of the day doing everything else that we wanted to, except the Sun Mountain Flyer. We arrived just about at opening, 10:00 ish. We had absolutely no trouble finding tons to do all day long and were still ready to go when everything shut down at 5. The Aerial Adventure is absolutely the best ropes course I have ever seen, and we are somewhat connoisseurs (and I used to run a course, as well). The lobster-claw system seems a little bulky at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is fantastic and really very easy and exceptionally safe. The courses are the perfect combination of fun and challenge, each one getting a little more difficult. They all have zip lines for bonus fun (the best one was on the blue course, and it was the best one ever). The Mountain Adventure park has mini golf, an alpine slide that is nearly a mile long, bungee trampolines, a climbing wall, a little zip line for rugrats, bumper boats, space bikes, and a waterslide (plus more I'm not thinking of). We LOVED the alpine slide, going up and down and up and down about five times. It was too cold to do the water slide, which we regret missing, but we'll go next time. The tickets were a little expensive, but they were half the price of a similar, but not as complete, setup at Smuggler's Notch and other places. Buying a pass allows you to do any of the Mountain Adventure stuff as many times as you want, and that is what I suggest, because I think buying tickets would get expensive very quickly. The staff were a mixed bag, from the sprawling disinterested morons at the top of the alpine slide who barely acknowledged your existence, to the enthusiastic, involved trampoline operators who were engaged and seemed happy to be at work. Food is typical of a ski resort - way overpriced and mediocre quality - so bring a picnic basket to save some dough. I can't wait to go back and try the harder (black) Aerial Adventure when my kid is older next year. Tip - if you want souvenirs, shop before 5 because for some dumb reason, the shop closes when everything else does, instead of having the intelligence to catch the outgoing, grinning crowd with money in their hands!
