Attitash Activities in the Summer Including the Mountain Coaster and the Alpine Slide in Bartlett, NH
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 months it turns into an adventure park for the whole family. If you are looking for alpine slides in New Hampshire, you’ll definitely want to head to Attitash. The White Mountains area features lots of other great activities for families, so it’s a great place to visit with kids. Here are the Attitash Activities in the summer.
Attitash Activities in the Summer
We visited Attitash early in the day, before it got crowded. It had rained earlier in the morning, so the Alpine slides were closed first thing. Therefore, 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 for her. Older kids would love it, however.
After the climbing wall, we headed to the new Attitash 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. It’s so much fun, and I definitely recommend doing this at least once during your day at Attitash.
When the alpine slides opened for the day, 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. This is another one that you’ll probably want to do more than once!
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!
Overall the Attitash Mountain Resort includes the following activities: the ZipTour, the Mountain Coaster, the Alpine Slide, waterslides, the bungee trampoline, the rockwall, slacklines, an airbag jump, chairlift rides, mountain biking, and a gondola ride ( at Wildcat mountain).
Tickets for the Attitash Adventure Park
Guests to Attitash have a few different ticket options. I like the all-day ticket includes many of the attractions, like the mountain coaster, alpine slide, and waterslides. If you do stay all day, I’d recommend bringing a bathing suit, as there is also a kiddie pool and some water slides. Because you’ll likely want to do the slides and coaster more than once, it’s good to have the all day ticket.
Bike rentals aren’t included in the all day ticket, so if you want to do the mountain biking, you’ll need to bring your own or rent them. You’ll get a few dollars off the all-day ticket when purchasing online in advance.
There’s also a half-day ticket option, if you aren’t planning to spend the whole day, but you can only use those tickets from 3pm-6pm. Single attraction tickets are also offered, if you just want to do one specific attraction. Chances are, you’ll want to do more than one, however.
The summer activities at Attitash Mountain Resort are generally open from the middle of June through Labor Day, but check their website for more specific opening dates. They are also usually open Memorial Day weekend, if you want to get a jump start on your summer! They are also open on weekends only through part of the fall.
