We were in line at the Alpine Coaster at 12:30pm. It took an hour &1/2 to get on the ride one time. Since our group bought multi-ride passes, we got in line a second time. It took over an hour once again to get on the ride. Once on the coaster it is a great ride! It is a lot... More

The kids enjoyed Spirit Mountain. The mini golf is lame, don't bother. The Alpine Coaster, Scenic Lift and Jumping Pillow were a lot of fun. The Zip Line went down for "maintenance" shortly after we bought our tickets, but the staff traded them for jumping pillow tickets, we appreciated that since the did not have to do that. Overall, we... More

Took my Grandson up here on Labor Day weekend,to ride the "Timber Twister". We were not disappointed. The downsides were that there was only one Woman working in the Ticket area at the time,with large families rolling in the Door on top of us,and there was about a half hour wait,which wasn't that big of a deal. The Coaster is... More

The Timber Twister Alpine Coaster is fantastic. Best thrill ride flying down the hill. Timber Flyer zip line was okay. Next time would skip the zip line and do the alpine coaster a couple of times.

Took the bobsled ride. It was very smooth and more fun than I expected for this 2 minute ride down the mountain. You can control your speed. Lots of ups and downs and sideways. No problem for those with back issues.

I went on the Timber Twister Alpine Slide. Wow! It was fun! I can't wait to go back when the fall colors are in full bloom. The views of Lake Superior and the Duluth hillside are spectacular.

Family loved it!!! Couldn't get the tweens off of it! So much fun. You control how fast you go and that's a plus for those of us that are not quite as daring as everyone else.

We try to stop at Adventure Park at Spirit Mountain just to ride the Timber Twister every time we are in Duluth. The staff is great. Easygoing. This time the Scenic Chairlift was open - beautiful relaxing ride overlooking Duluth. Timber Twister is a great ride any season of the year. Beautiful scenery if you go slow enough. You control...

We only did the alpine slide and it was our favorite thing we did for the weekend. Four of us in our 20's were pleasantly surprised. It wasn't anything stupendous but the view was amazing and it had an old charm feel. Can't believe I had never done this! You can either ride single or double. My husband and i... More

My family stops here on our way to duluth for this ride, it is so so so fun. We love roller coasters, so most of us go fast (the rider controls the speed) but the scenic aspect of the ride is amazing too. Its so fun to go around the twists and turns and catch a glimpse of lake superior.... More
