This family attraction in Keystone just 2 1/2 miles from Mount Rushmore was one of my teenager's favorite activites from the week we were in the Black Hills. It is a bit expensive, however, our family thought it was worth it.
Everyone rides what they call the tram (a skilift type thing) up to the top of the mountain- which we all really enjoyed. It is a slow ride up. Then you have the choice or riding the tram back down or riding the alpine slide. Adults are $9 each and children under 6 are $2. If you ride the tram both ways it is $7. There is a grille on top of the mountain for lunch or a snack (which serves beer too). We didn't eat there since it was early in the day. The best part for me (Mom) was the view at the top. There is a lookout where you can see Mount Rushmore and Keystone--just beautiful! You can also purchase a picture of yourself riding up the tram that they take. I didn't bring my camera up since I didn't know if it would work on the slide ride down, but now I wish I had taken my camera up. There would have been room on the slide in my lap for it and the sights up there would have been great!The slide was fun coming down. You have complete control of how fast or slow you come down and there are plenty of warnings on the track to remind you of sharp curves and such and where you would need to slow down. I never felt at any risk although you do sign a waver before going up the mountain. My 5 year old loved it, my 13 year old ADORED it and my 16 year old loved it. I am 41 and haven't done anything like that in a long time and would do it again in a heartbeat!
I found a coupon online for some money off, so look around for coupons. If you have kids, don't miss this!
