Get a workout

We traveled here in between the summer and ski season, group of 5 women. We try to always do at least one outdoor activity when we get together and this visit was no exception. At Wisp, we decided to do the Spider Monkey course and the mountain coaster. The Spider Monkey was a ropes course that looked like it was going to be simple until we got up there! About halfway in the guide tells us this is the much harder course versus their zipline. There was a group of older ladies ahead of us that made it all the way through as well, although it took them a bit of time. But, the weather was fabulous, the guides were fun, and we got some exercise. Oh, and we are all addicted to mountain coasters now! What a rush!
Mountain Coaster, Zip-Line, Elevated Obstacle Course

I have never done anything likes these before so I enjoyed it even if I was a little out of my comfort zone at first. Those who have zip-line before may find this one too tame since I was comfortable after the first zip. I got the 3-pass for the Mountain Coaster, nothing compared to Dominion or Six Flags but I was surprised how hard I had to counter lean going through the three upper turns and the corkscrew - supposedly you hit a max speed of 35 mph. Okay, I am not ready for American Ninja but I did break a sweat trying to navigate the course. Again this was a fun beginner course, not for the experienced.

Wisp Outdoor Adventure Park is a great place to take the kids. Also, ride the chair lift to the top of the mountain for great views and great pictures.
Mountain Coaster was great fun!

Our first trip to Deep Creek Lake and the last day we stopped for a ride on the mountain coaster. We were a group of four adults and seven kids - we all went on. WOW! So much fun. It it wasn't expensive, I would have gone again. The zip lines looked fun too, but we didn't have the time, nor the inclination to spend more money here, but was glad we did the mountain coaster. Never been on one before and loved that you could control your speed. My 8 y/o and I went down pretty much top speed the whole way down, only touching the brakes on one or two curves.

Had a good day at this ski resort in the summertime. The chair lift view was stunning and it looked like the folks using the mountain coaster were having a good time. Particularly enjoyed, as spectators only, the whitewater course on top of the mountain. Plenty of other things for kids and adults to do.
