We recently visited Rush City and had an absolute Blast! We went at the end of September so it was quiet and did not have to wait in any lines. The mountain coaster was AWESOME! What a thrilling ride. All the rides were great though....More

My husband and I stopped by just to ride the coaster. I think that $15 per driver and $10 per passenger for one ride is absolutely ridiculous but my husband wanted to do it so badly. It's really cool to have control over your cart....More

Did the cave tour which we both enjoyed very much, takes about 1 hour. While waiting for the next tour we rode the mountain coaster and the short zipline which were both fun. Great family location.

This is really a fun place. A little pricey but the best value is the $50 wristband. It gives you admission to everything. Having been in many caves this one is pretty unique once you hear the history of this area and cave. The zipline...More
