We live in Rapid city and took an afternoon to do the zip line tour. My kids, ages 12 - 21, loved it!

Our family had a blast on the pinnacle zip-lining tour. Nathan & Brad were awesome guides! They were very thorough with their instructions and their safety checks all while interacting and have fun with us. Keep up the great work guys!

It was fun taking the chair lift up but the ride down on the sled was kind of boring. Save the $12 and find something else to do. The staff were also pretty unfriendly.More

Glad you enjoyed the chairlift. Sorry to hear you thought the Alpine Slide was boring. The cool thing about the slide is that you are in control of your speed the entire way down. You get to choose whether you go at a snail's pace...More

Hi there! Sandals are perfect for the Alpine Slide. If you're ziplining or doing the Aerial Adventure Park however, we recommend closed-toe shoes. See you soon!
