There’s An Adventure Park Hiding In New Mexico And You Need To Visit
Remember when you were a kid and had time to play? I bet you saw the outdoors as a giant playground just waiting to be discovered. Well, there’s a place in New Mexico where you can recapture that feeling of excitement and possibility.
Although Red River Summer Ski Area has been around since 1959, it was only last year that the company added an adventure park to the range of summer activities.
Hidden Treasure Aerial Park offers three levels of ropes courses that increase in difficulty.
So, even if you’ve never tried this activity before, you can start at the first level...
...And work your way up (literally).
Red River is surrounded by gorgeous scenery and the higher you go, the better the view.
For a different perspective on the area’s natural beauty, try one of the two zip lines.
Talk about a rush.
But why stop there? You can also experience the Pioneer Flyer.
During this ride, your cart is pulled 750 feet backwards. At the farthest point from the loading bay, you have a few moments to soak in the scenery, then the cart is released and you whiz back at 35 miles per hour!
Finally, if you’re determined to squeeze every ounce of fun out of your day, check out the summer tubing.
This is like regular tubing… only without the cold and snow. The ski area has the longest summer tubing lanes in the nation; it’s so long that you need to take a chairlift to the top.
Hidden Treasure Aerial Park opens for the summer season on June 9th 2017. That may seem far away right now, but make note of that date so you can book a slot on the ropes course in advance.
Whether you want to unleash your inner kid or bring along your actual ones, Red River Summer Ski Area is a destination worth discovering.
It’s located at 400 Pioneer Road in Red River.
