  • Gorgeous scenery! I really wish the wagon was a little safer though. I didn't feel like I could let my two year old go down the slide by himself like he can at other parks because of the two-story drop from the top. A guard rail on the sides for a few feet would go so far towards keeping little people safe, and enabling parents to let their kiddos play independently.
  • What a great place! Lots of fun to find here. We were a little disappointed in the disorganization around renting out the pedal karts, but glad it worked out in the end. The gondola ride was fabulous and the spider jump was a lot cheaper than other places we've tried. Of course the carousel was classic fun! Great trails, can't wait to see what else they add here.
