RIP, ZIP AND FLIP AT OKEMO’S ADVENTURE ZONE  


LUDLOW, Vt. – Okemo Mountain Resort’s Adventure Zone at Jackson Gore offers fun for the whole family.  Whether visitors spend an hour or an entire day ripping it up on The Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster, Ziping along a Zipline Tour or flipping on a bungee trampoline, The Adventure Zone is sure to garner giggles, shouts and squeals of pure delight.

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 before finally coasting toward the terminal.

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 treetop tour features suspension bridges, rappels and seven zipline segments that rise 40 to 50 feet above the ground.
Amp Energy Big Air BagIt takes a real thrill seeker to take a leap into a giant inflatable bag like a movie stuntman. 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. 

Segway Personal Transport Tours
Forget Mall Cop. This off-road, guided excursion puts those knobby tires to the test. Tour participants explore open fields, wooded trails, and even a specially designed contoured track on a self-balancing, two-wheeled personal transport. 
Climbing PinnaclePainted to look like a giant tree trunk, this three-sided climbing tower offers routes of varying difficulty. Trained staff on belay 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 play uniquely inspired by Vermont’s maple sugaring traditions. Galvanized metal sap buckets atop wooden posts bare the number of each hole, and metal tubs serve as the receptacles for final throws. Discs are available for rent and for purchase.

Snack Bar
The delicious Belgian waffles Okemo skiers and snowboarders know so well are now be available all summer long. The Waffle Cabin is operating in Okemo’s Adventure Zone. In addition to those famous (featured on The Travel Channel) freshly made waffles, the Waffle cabin folks will be serving burgers, hot dogs, ice cream and other sundries. Guests can enjoy their food in a nearby shaded picnic area. There's also Coleman Brook Tavern for full-service dining in the Jackson Gore Inn. Lunch is served al fresco or in the comfort of an air conditioned dining room.
