  • A different view of Rushmore. Great views of the Black Hills. The best part is piloting a alpine sled down the hill at 120+ mph with no helmet. ☠☠☠ I'm kidding, it's 95 mph. I'm still kidding. Its not dangerous fast. The only downside is the price. 💰💰 The ride down last maybe 90 seconds. I'm being generous with that time. After paying for my family of five, we had no cash for meals the rest of our trip. 😵😩🤑😫🤐
  • Took my 6 year old on the alpine slide. I guess I was not fully aware how easy the sleds tip after some rushed instructions. We were having fun until we were almost to the bottom. We ended up flipping upside down, and skidding for quite a while. If we were provided with any type of glove,we would have been fine,but once I had to put my hand down to shield my son, all I could smell was burning flesh. I ended up with burns on my hands and legs almost down to the muscle(where my skin was oozing clear plasma). I admit, I was in control of the sled, and video taping(there is a sign in the front of the business with a father and son doing the same thing),so I was at fault for crashing. The part that bothered me about the alpine slide the most was that when we got off all bloody, and my son crying from pain,the employees just snatched the sled out of my hand and stacked it like nothing had happened. The same thing when we had to exit through the gift shop. Luckily we were within walking distance of our hotel where their front desk clerk immediately went and got us some 1st aid. Just a little compassion would have meant at least a couple more stars with my review.
  • Very friendly staff. The Pinnacle tour was great! Crowds are smaller in the afternoon. Nathan and Brad were amazing tour guides. Very safe. Great new way to see my Rushmore! Pricing was very similar to other zip lines I've been on.
  • This took you basically to the same height as Mount Rushmore. Scary yet breathtaking at the same time. Tour guides for the zip line tour were phenomenal, and my kids had a blast. Was definitely worth the drive from Minnesota!:)
