My daughter is a 6-year old adrenaline junkie, so on our trip to the White Mountains this year, I just knew that we had to include a stop at Attitash Mountain Resort. Attitash is a popular ski resort, but in the summer it turns into an adventure park for the whole family.
It had rained early in the morning, so the Alpine slides were closed first thing. We started at the climbing wall, where my daughter made it halfway up before deciding to turn around and come down. She loved the experience, but it got to be a bit too difficult. Then, we headed to the new Mountain Coaster, pictured here. The coaster is pulled up to the top of the mountain, where you then descend through loops at a speed controlled by you. Our first run up, my son wanted to go a bit slow, but then got comfortable with it and loved speeding down.
When the alpine slides opened, we headed over there. You aren’t allowed to bring anything up with you, so either leave bags in the car, or rent a locker for $1 in quarters. The kids loved this ride too – even the ski lift that brought us up.
From there, we went to the bungee trampoline, where both kids had a blast jumping up and down and even flipping. I even had the chance to try it. But then we headed back to the Mountain Coaster, because the kids wanted to do even more runs!
Guests to Attitash can either purchase single-ride tickets or an all-day ticket. If you do stay all day, I’d recommend bringing a bathing suit, as there is also a kiddie pool and some water slides.
