You’ll Want To Ride The One Of A Kind Soaring Eagle Zipride In South Dakota
Do you consider yourself to be somewhat of an adrenaline junkie? Then today’s post is just for you! While South Dakota is home to several thrilling hikes, climbs, and windy roads, few realize that we even house some heart-pounding rides that every adventurer must try. Case in point: the one-of-a-kind and unforgettable Soaring Eagle Zipride rollercoaster!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Welcome to the exciting Rush Mountain Adventure Park, which is billed as being a "Mountain of Family Fun!"
Started in 1927, Rush Mountain Adventure Park has grown tremendously over the years, beginning with popular cave tours and slowly transforming into the iconic amusement park that people know and love today.
One of the most exciting and thrilling of amusement park attractions is the Soaring Eagle Zipride, which invites you to "soar like an eagle" while freefalling 630 feet down the side of the mountain.
After descending down the hill, get ready to travel back up the mountain on your side-by-side seat, which allows you to share the experience with a friend.
Unlike other zip lines, you will not be dangling from a harness on the Soaring Eagle Zipride, but rather sitting in a secured seat that allows for passengers 42 inches and up.
In addition to the Zipride, Rush Mountain offers several other exciting rides and experiences, including the original Rushmore Cave, Gunslinger 7-D ride, and Mountain Coaster (pictured).
All-day passes to the Rush Mountain Adventure Park start at $25 per person, with individual ride tickets beginning at $12.
