  • We went to Mt. Rushmore.. We did cosmos, bear country, reptile gardens, did some mini golf but this place topped the trip off. The tour guides had great sense of humor and were fun to be guided by. Gr...  more »

  • Perfect activity while vising the area. We were there over Memorial Day weekend when things were just opening up. We just loved this little establishment (not so little but compared to the other adventure park, it is smaller). It was so reasonably priced and well maintained. Staff were friendly and professional and we felt very safe going up the lift to the top of the slide. We only did it one time, but our 11 year old could ride the slide by himself repeatedly while mom and dad enjoyed a cold beverage below. I am not sure if this is a family owned park but it sure did feel like everyone was family. I'd like to give a shout-out to MacKenzie for his time and hospitality as we tourists peppered him with various questions. Such a nice guy, patient and genuinely interested in making sure we had a good time. Thank you for making our trip to the Black Hills so memorable!
  • I'm not one to give 5-star reviews, but this place... A whole different story. I took the pinnacle zip tour, and was that experience amazing! You got to see beautiful views of Mount Rushmore and the forests around it. Breathtaking! We did the slides, which were fun too. The guides were very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back!
  • Friendly staff offering several different adventures. We opted for the alpine slides. Very little instruction prior to sliding down the mountain. Please take the time to enjoy the gardens and restaurant at the top. Well worth your time! George’s Grill is as scenic as it gets.
  • Fun, Fun, Fun!!! Went on the tramway up to the top. Ate lunch at the restaurant at the top (delicious burgers and friendly staff). Rode the slide back down which was a riot!! They have a side for fast riders and a side for slower riders/younger kids. When my stepson was going down 2 deer actually ran in front of him across the slides and he had to stop. So cool!! Make sure to sign the release first when you get there and then head over to get your tickets. Lots of fun options!!
  • I really can't say enough about this hidden treasure. First, they let you take your dog on the tram. Second, they paused it to let my mom take her time to get on. Then at the top you have an unparalleled view of Mt. Rushmore plus an outdoor grill/cafe where we got a couple brats and some beer. You will be paying the same just for parking at the monument. Great staff as well with helpful local advice on where else to visit in Keystone.
