This summer, visitors to the White Mountains and Lakes Region of New Hampshire will have more fun things to do thanks to Gunstock Mountain Resort. The multifaceted resort is building an adventure ropes course and a Segway™ tour route that will add to the many activities already offered at their recreation area in Gilford, NH.
The Aerial Treetops Adventure course is nearing completion at the new Gunstock Mountain Resort Adventure Park. It will consist 91 games that include 41 course challenges covering over 1000 feet, 22 ladders, and 12 zip lines totaling almost 1,400 feet in length. “The ATA course will be the largest high ropes, zip line and adventure course in New England,” says Bill Quigley, Director of Marketing and Sales at Gunstock. “While many are building fun things to stop traffic, ours is unique as it has been custom designed and built within the natural setting at Gunstock, taking advantage of beauty and topography of the 9 acres it covers.”
The Adventure Park will open on Friday, May 27th, just in time for Memorial Day weekend. The demo course and the five levels of adult courses will be ready for the holiday. The kids’ course is still under construction, and will be finished by mid-summer along with the zip line tours. “We are all very excited about the work that has been done since March 29th,” says General Manager Greg Goddard. “We still have work to complete the entire project by our target of early July, but the Aerial Treetop Adventure course is ready and better than we imagined.”
Also new at Gunstock is a Segway™ tour course, which utilizes the new Segway X2, an off-road version of their personal transportation machines. Gunstock now has the only authorized Segway off-road tour experience in New England. The course features some of the resort’s 50 miles of beautiful alpine and cross-country terrain, and guides will offer nature and historical tours of the area in this innovative new adventure.
Get ready for some new excitement this summer, and sign up for a Segway tour or visit the new Aerial Treetops Adventure course. These adventures are sure to become your next family vacation tradition! For more information or reservations, call 603-737-4388.
