  • This is one of the first things I found when I was searching things to do. CHECK GROUPON! I was able to get our passes on there and I saved $20 for my family of 4. It might not be a lot of money...

  • Definitely a blast for myself and my 4 year old. The wait wasn't too long but I can see in the middle of tourist season it being quite the time waiting in line. There isn't a ton of parking so if the lot is full it's probably better to try and come back later. The hill ride up is super steep but fun going through the woods. Once at the top it's a great ride down. Brake as much as you need to. They give a pretty descent gap between riders. There are some nice hairpin turns and a few drops. The carts have levers that if you push forward will make you go faster and if you pull back you'll start to brake, very simple and easy to remember.
  • There's pretty much always a line but it does move relatively fast. It's a cool way to see the nature. The ride up the hill is all sightseeing and the ride back down is a thrill! It went faster than expected. I'm a heavy guy and I fit no problem and I sit on the cart no problem. Pretty easy to use the carts push forward to release the brake, pull back on the handlebars to brake.
