With 3,500 feet of downhill twists and turns, get ready to dip, twist, and careen down the mountain in a fun new way with the Mountain Coaster at Wisp Resort! Billed as a “gravitational hybrid” between an “alpine slide and a roller coaster,” this ride is a perfect suit for kids (3 years and older) and adults! Equipped with a hand brake in each cart, you are entirely in control of the cart’s momentum and are free to go as fast or as slow as you like.
Ropes Course/Zip lines
How much fun does the ‘Chipmunk Challenge’ sound? How about the ‘Spider Monkey Adventure’ or the ‘Flying Squirrel Canopy Tour’? These three ropes courses at Wisp Resort are designed to challenge climbers of all ages (6+) to series of zip lines, cargo nets, and more. The trained guides will help you get the adventure started.
Scenic Chair Lift
There may not be any snow on the mountain, but that doesn’t have to keep you away from the chair lifts at Wisp Resort! Grab your camera and a friend (or two!) for a lift up the mountain to behold spectacular sweeping panoramas of the mountainside overlooking Deep Creek Lake. Once you’re up there, consider a hike on one of Wisp’s mountaintop trails!
