SUMMER MOUNTAIN ADVENTURES
If you're looking for some high adventure and your next adrenaline rush just look to the mountains for your next adventure. Play in the tree tops, zip down zip lines and ride a mountain coaster, where you control the speed of your ride.
Canopy Tour & Williwaw Racing Zip
The Canopy Tour is situated high on the slopes of Bretton Woods and descends over 1000 feet of elevation. The 3-hour tour takes nature-lovers and thrill-seekers across a series of tree-top zip lines through a network of platforms high in the ancient hemlocks. This unique canopy tour features a dual-cable construction (you slide below two separate cables, instead of just one), coated cables (to make for a quiet, more natural flight through the trees) and platforms and bridges milled from locally-harvested wood sources, in keeping with our commitment to environmentally sustainable programs.
The Williwaw Racing Zip is a great way to experience the thrill of zip lining. The 800' side by side ziplines let you race against friends and family for a friendly competition. One ride takes about 20 minutes, including getting harnessed up, transportation to the top and getting unharnessed. You can take multiple rides at a reduced rate!

ZipTour, Aerial Treetop Adventures & Mountain Coaster
Soar above the trees from peak to peak, and peak to base, traveling over 1.6 miles on one of the longest zip line canopy tours in the continental United States! The ZipTour at Gunstock is one to make your heart pump this summer.
Built within the trees along Gunstock's pond, Aerial Treetop Adventure is New England's Largest Aerial Obstacle Course. Explore Gunstock from a bird's eye view with 91 different challenges. You're securely suspended within the trees in 8 courses, including the Explorer Course just for kids. Some of the features include log ladders, bridges, swings, seesaws, foot bridges and, of course, lots of zip lines.
Included in the Discover Adventure, the Mountain Coaster is essentially a cross between an alpine slide and a roller coaster, set on the mountainside. This thrilling ride takes folks uphill through the forest before gravity takes over on the way down. The downhill track is designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own braking system, allowing you to slow speeds to a comfortable pace or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels! Hooting and hollering are encouraged!
