The teenagers had a blast riding the mountain coaster. When we are in town we always try to get a ride or two in. Very exciting to rise down the mountain with all the dips, twists and turns.

We brought our grandsons to Deep Creek to do some hiking but, we couldn't leave without letting them ride the mountain coaster. They are hooked and can't wait to do it again!

The mountain coaster was great for the kids and adults. The kids zip line was fun and age appropriate. Nice playground area, sandbox and picnic tables.

What a blast ! Our guide Bob was awesome ... we are beginners , and he made it fun and relatively easy for us . I would recommend to family with teens and preteens , might be a little scary for small children ...

We loved Wisp and the whole Deep Creek area. The mountain coaster and ropes challenge course were terrific. Well maintained and the staff is top notch and very helpful. Will return in winter to ski and stay at the resort.

Sounds like you're looking to stay at the hotel. I would check directly with them. However, there is also the option of renting a condo or house through Railey Mountain Lake Vacations, which I would recommend exploring
