The aerial course was fun and challenging. I bit off more than I could handle with the blue course and would have liked a staff members assistance in getting down but I had no choice but to continue because there weren't any staff around close enough for me to get their attention. The zip line was lots of fun. My son enjoyed the maze. We didn't realize there were glacial caves to explore at the top but were glad to find out. My son enjoyed climbing through them. The climbing wall had varied levels from easy to really hard which was nice. The zip line was fun. It wasn't too intimating and it was still exciting. The purple ride by the bounce houses was awesome. Cost $5 but it was worth it. We loved that. Great experience, glad we went.

staff was quite rude- seemed to enjoy putting others down- "that was the worst zipline i've ever seen..."
if staff would be more helpful and interested in guests we would go back....

We loved this place! Full day of adventure, nature and peaceful relaxing for everyone. My grandson masters the level 1 rock climbing wall. We took the gondola ride to the top and explored caves and watch towers. My 80 year old mother released in comfy, shady Adirondacks and enjoyed observing her family play. We spent hours and loved every minute. It is a must for family fun!

My teenage kids loved the 4-person gondola, which takes one up to the top of the mountain; I, personally, could have used more air inside the gondola. Once at the top, there are a couple of trails, including a caves-exploration trail (One may bipass the caves, as we did, for the most part.), a fun treasure hunt for the kids (or for anyone), an observation deck, a cafeteria, and a small art museum; there was an opportunity to carve your name in a walking stick for purchase.

Regarding the cave trail, BRING INSECT REPELLANT; the mosquitos were out in full force! Also, be prepared that the caves are rocky and some are narrow, and involve crawling. There are other activities, at the base of Loon Mountain, which are not included in the price of the gondola ride. We did not do any of those.

We enjoyed spending time among the river rock and boulders along Kancamagus highway just west of the Loon Mountain entrance. There are several good photo ops and picnic tables, etc.
