Summer Tubing

Scream down a 500-foot hill on snow tube, without the snow, of course. There’s also mini tubing available for younger visitors.

Ridge Rider Mountain Coaster

This brand-new coaster soars through forests and natural rock formations. This is definitely an experience unique to the Tahoe area!

Climbing Wall

Blue Streak Zip Line

Jaw dropping views of the lake only a few miles away are seen as you fly 50 mph on Heavenly’s two parallel 3,300 foot long zip lines. The starting elevation here is right around 10,000 feet, so you can imagine the view below!

Ropes Course

Challenge yourself on this ropes course high above the ground. The Black Bear ropes course is for beginners, while the Boulder Cove ropes course is more of a challenge.
