  • They’re still rebuilding from the fire a few years back but the views are worth it! Treetop trail was still under construction  more »
  • This was a fun evening ! Taking the ski lift up gives a nice view of the town. It was cooler later in the day and not too crowded . The ropes/ play set was lots of fun for my kids . The ride down at.....  more »
  • Let me start by saying the view is beautiful. We chose Anakeesta so my 13 year old (celiac) and I could zip line. As always I made sure she had a good meal prior to leaving our resort. On our way...  more »

  • This is a great place with great family entertainment. I have 6 kids and they all enjoyed it. The tree top walk has breathtaking views and is fun to walk above the ground in the canopy of the trees. The treehouse village is great for kids of all ages I have them ranging from 3 to 12 and they all enjoyed it. The floral garden is very pretty with spots along the way to sit and soak up the mountain views. We had ice cream up on the mountain and it was great. All the employees we interacted with were very nice and help full. We road the box car up the mountain and then part of us road the chair down and the other part road the ridge rambler truck down both were great and fun. We definitely served the chair or the truck over the box car. Lastly we rode the rail runner several times it was great all 4 of my kids that rode it once rode it several more times. Zack the guide at the rail runner was amazing definitely made it an experience to remember he gets 5 stars in my book. He was entertaining and very good with my kids that started out scared he made them feel comfortable, secure and confident in what they were doing. THANK YOU ZACK FOR BEING GREAT WITH MY CHILDREN AND I.
  • We loved this place. The views are incredible. The roller coaster is unique one person and you control your speed. The open lift is nice. Great view from the lift . Walking the trees is very unique and get different views and a feel for what it's like to climb the trees. The employees throughout the park were very polite and helpful as well. A great experience overall. Its definitely worth a visit.
  • LOVED our visit. We went after 5 so it was not so hot. FANTASTIC views, BEAUTIFUL gardens. We had dinner with breathtaking views, a nice mountain breeze blowing and the food was great. Large portions for your money. The only issue I had was having to stand in a very long line to place our orders. With such a beautiful setting and delicious food it would be nice to sit down, relax, enjoy the views and be waited on at your table. The fire pit was going once the sun went down and that was very enjoyable. Cute litle shops, everything is so clean and well kept. My nephew LOVED the tree houses. I highly recommend Anakeesta. We would do it again.
  • Nice view, brisket not great, somewhat dry. Nice walk in the woods. No clear or enforced smoking policy that I could see. Smoker seemed to be following me around. Normally I come to mountains expecting fresh air. Nice garden if you like gardens. Not much shade compared to elsewhere in mountains with the trees mostly cut down, don't pick a hot day to come.
  • Nice place, but be prepared to spend some money. Not only do you pay $12 for 10 hours of parking. Even if you need only 2 you still can only pay for 10. Cost about about $25 a person to get in, although if you purchase your tickets after 6 PM you can use them the next day. The rail ride was around $15 each. But we did enjoy our visit and I would recommend it.
