DAD’S FUN IS FREE AT OKEMO’S ADVENTURE ZONE ON FATHER’S DAY


LUDLOW, VT – Father’s Day, Sunday, June 15, is a very special day at Okemo Mountain Resort’s Adventure Zone. Dads get to go for free when at least one family member purchases a full-price ticket and accompanies them on the Haulback Challenge Course, Sawyer’s Sweep Zipline Tour or Segway Personal Transport Tour. Dads get free access to multiple Adventure Zone features when a family member purchases an Adventure Zone wristband. Whether guests are spending an hour or an entire day, Okemo’s Adventure Zone, located at the Resort’s Jackson Gore base area, is sure to garner giggles, shouts and squeals of pure delight.

Haulback Challenge Course
High among the trees, Challenge Course adventurers follow a self-guided layout of suspended obstacles and ziplines while wearing a safety harness that is connected to an overhead cable using a continuous belay system. Participants travel at their own speed and course attendants offer assistance if needed.

Sawyer’s Sweep Zipline Tour
This guided high-flying tour features suspension bridges, rappels and seven zipline segments that rise 40 to 50 feet above the ground.

Segway Personal Transport tours
This guided excursion puts those knobby tires to the test. Tour participants explore open fields and wooded trails on a self-balancing, two-wheeled personal transport. 

Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster
Similar to a roller coaster, sled-like cars carry one or two riders along rails at speeds nearing 30 mph. Equipped with brakes so riders determine their own speed, cars glide smoothly around banking turns, between trees, and along 3100 feet of track that twists through corkscrew turns, along banking loops and over rippling waves.

Amp Energy Big Air Bag
It takes a real thrill seeker to take a leap into a giant inflatable bag like a movie stunt double. Measuring 30 x 50 feet, the bag’s internal air pumps ensure constant pressure to absorb the 30-foot fall from a platform above. 

Stump Jumper Bungee Trampoline
This four-station hopping hub combines technologically advanced trampoline jumping surfaces with bungee cord tethers attached to a jump harness; allowing participants to reach heights of 20 feet. 

Climbing Pinnacle
Painted to look like a giant tree trunk, this three-sided climbing tower offers routes of varying difficulty. Trained staff members are on belay to help guide climbers as high as they want to go.

Lumberin’ Cal Mini Golf
Each hole in this 18-hole course is themed with an element of local legend and lore. Choice is the motivator in this course with multiple paths to the cup. The course designer’s unique concept of “intentional luck,” allows children and less-skilled players to score as well as adults and expert putters.

The Maples at Okemo Disc Golf
Instead of a ball and clubs, disc golf players use a flying disc. The Maples course offers 18 official targets sanctioned by the Professional Disc Golf Assoc. Discs are available for rent and for purchase.

A snack bar provides refreshment and a shaded picnic area makes a perfect rest spot during a day of adventure. There’s also a retail shop and Okemo’s nearby Coleman Brook Tavern offers full-service dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Each of Okemo’s Adventure Zone features are priced individually or visitors can purchase an Adventure Zone Day Pass wristband for $54. The Day Pass includes three rides on the Timber Ripper, unlimited use of The Stump Jumper Bungee Jump, Disc Golf, Lumberin’ Cal Mini Golf, the Amp Energy Big Air Bag, Climbing Wall and use of The Jackson Gore Springhouse Pool and Fitness Center. 

Okemo’s Adventure Zone will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Father’s Day. Specific information about hours and pricing is posted online. Zipline tours and Segway Personal Transport tours may be reserved by calling (802) 228-1600. More information about Okemo Mountain Resort may be obtained by visiting okemo.com.
