At Rush Mountain Adventure Park, you will find fun on all levels! Rush Mountain is the home of famous Rushmore Cave. Come and explore the stalactite-filled caverns of this amazing natural wonder on a fun and educational cave tour. Spend the day enjoying great amusement rides. You can soar through the sky on the Soaring Eagle Zipline Ride or try your skill at the Gunslinger 7-D Interactive Ride. Feel the rush as speed down the hill on the area's only coaster, the Rushmore Mountain Coaster. You are sure to have a great time, full of affordable family fun. It's a total must-do attraction for anyone coming to the Black Hills. Cave and attractions are open daily May-October and weekends in March and April. Check website for hours and admission prices.

If you want a 'Thrill of a Lifetime', then do this ride. New, clean with a very helpful and happy crew to attend to your needs. Tom Hagen (owner) pays attention to every detail and it shows. I want to go again.

Hi there. I understand your frustration with our property but I would like a moment to clarify a few points. The anchor of our property for the last 90 years has been Rushmore Cave. The cave was discovered halfway up a rather steep hill. Since...More
