We did this as a family and everyone enjoyed the ride. Being able to buy one ticket and ride multiple times was a great addition to our vacation. The grounds could use a little more cleanup but it wasn't bad.

We drove by this and the boys instantly wanted to go. We did come back and go on a different day, after also hearing good reviews from other travellers. Only bought one round though [I think there's a deal for two rounds] and sure enough, everyone was begging to go again! The view at the top is great and the gondola ride up is also worth the ride. The kids of course loved the slide down.

We decided to come back again for round two on our last day, which proved to be a bit interesting... my oldest two sons and I had our photoshoot at the top and got off the gondola and then my husband and youngest two sons had their photoshoot and the gondola stopped, right before the deck to get off. We waited and waited and waited and waited... finally the employees at the top offered to help them down since they were so close. By this time it was starting to rain a bit and questionable if we could even use the slides but we did and all went well. As we drove off, we looked up the hill and the gondolas were still paused! We'd go back though!

My husband and 3 younger kids (8, 10, and 12) thought this was great. They even spent their own money to get a T-Shirt from here. They could not wait to tell there friends about it.

We needed something active for the kids to do after lots of driving. This was perfect. We bought one ride for each, hubby and I just rode the tram up and down and watched the kids on the slide track. They can totally control the speed that they go down, so one was as fast as possible whooping the whole way and the other was cautiously slow and still whooping the whole way! Very fun plus very good vantage point for some great scenic photos!

The brochure and website sounded like this would be a breath-taking adventure for the whole family. We bought tickets for most of us (grandma chose to wait at the bottom of the hill) and rode up on the chairlift. The ride is nice, but there really isn't much to look at on the way up. Each individual sits in their own wheeled vehicle (small children ride with an adult) and we were prepared to fly down the slide. I'm 62 years old and about 200 pounds - my assumption was that my bulk would require riding the break all the way to the end of the ride. Not so. In the interest of safety (understandable), the speed is limited not only by your willingness to risk bodily injury, but by the cars themselves. Fun? Yes, but not the highlight of the trip by a long shot.
