Longest Mountain Coaster

After feeling the rush of the bobsled track, enjoy the scenic views from the longest Mountain Coaster in the country. And you don't have far to go. It's right next to the bobsled run.

You can go as slow or as fast as you’d like down Mt. Van Hoevenberg. You may want to go in the fall to enjoy the beautiful foliage during your ride.

Longest, Highest, Fastest Zipline

Rather than gliding through the forest on a coaster, why not fly above it on the longest & highest, and fastest Zipline Canopy Tour in the country.

New York Zipline Adventures at Hunter Mountian begins with a scenic chairlift or off-road ride to the Summit Lodge where you'll attend Zipline Pilot training school. Then it's off to experience 5 zip lines through the Catskills with some reaching speeds of 50 miles per hour, 600 feet in the air.

Zip Over Niagara Falls

If zipping through the mountains doesn't get your adrenaline pumping, try it over Niagara Falls at speeds of 40 mph, traveling 220 feet above the wide river gorge. And for the first time, you can experience the thrill after dark. Enjoy the falls illuminated in a cascade of colors and get up close to the fireworks if you zip during any of the scheduled fireworks displays.

Get Close to the Falls

While you're in Niagara Falls, get closer than you've ever been before in a one-of-a-kind experience.

The Cave of the Winds in Niagara Falls, New York takes you down 175 feet into the Niagara Gorge before bringing you out onto wooden walkways, that lead to the “Hurricane Deck.” That's where you'll find yourself within feet of the crashing Bridal Veil Falls and surrounded by tropical storm-like conditions, even on the calmest of days.
