You may ride our chairlift to the top of our mountain to have lunch and dine with a view of Mt. Rushmore just one mile across the valley. Once you have seen that gardens and had lunch, you may take our 2000 ft long self controlled alpine slide to the bottom. At the bottom, we have two 800 ft long ziplines side by side and an aerial adventure park which is a challenge course built up in the tree tops!

I researched the information on the website. When we got there we were told everything was closed except the Zip Line. We were pretty disappointed as we arrived 2 days early for our vacation so we could be in town on a weekend day because it was after Labor Day. We weren't the only patrons to leave that day there...

Rushmore Tramway Adventures was located right across the street from our hotel, we took our 6 kids on the tram and the loved exploring at the top of the ride. We didn't do the alpine slide and we wish we would have, however it wasn't explained to us very well how everything worked and we didn't realize the slide wasn't... More

We were in the Mount Rushmore area in mid July. Looking for something to do we decided the chair lift up the hill and then the alpine slide down the mountain was the thing to do. The chair lift cost ~$9.00 which you do as a round trip or for some more money you could do the alpine slide down... More

We only went on the Alpine slide here, there were many other adventures available such as ziplining. The slide was easy, affordable, and safe. There are single rider or double rider options, with a fast lane and a slow lane. Riders pay then ride a chairlift up to stand in line at the top of the slide. This is a... More

We had a really good time. Wish it wasn't so expensive to do the 2nd ride down the alpine slide, only could afford 1 ride for each of the 4 of us, but we all still really enjoyed it. We did the chair lift to the top and found a line waiting to go down the alpine slide. NOTE: there... More

If you have a couple of hours to kill, make sure you take the chair lift to the top of the mountain for lunch and the views. You can see Mount Rushmore from the top. The cost is reasonable and the kids will love it. You can stay as long as you want or leave on the next chairlift down.... More

We had a blast here. My wife, my 11-year-old daughter and I did the ropes course and zip line. We had a great time and I'm not broke. I would definitely recommend.

Is a fun activity to do with kids. They love it! you go down through the trees. Is pretty safe since you can control the speed. Make sure you do it if you go there!
