Thanks for the great review. I am glad you enjoyed cave tour and the coaster. This brings up a valuable tip for the coaster; always send the most adventurous in your group first. NO BRAKES!

Thanks for taking the time to write a great review for us. We try to accommodate when we can, whether it is for 100 or 1. You will definitely need to schedule a trip back for the coaster. It is awesome.

The alpine slide is amazing! We bought the all day pass. The rush going down the mountain was amazing. The views spectacular.

Thanks for the visit and we are glad you enjoyed the coaster. Many people are so focused on the track 15 feet in front of them, they don't notice the great view. We are glad you got a chance to see experience our beautiful valley.
