This a great attraction for families with kids. There is alpine sliding, a chairlift for a scenic view, bungee jumping, a bungee jump activity where you jump off a very high building, ziplining, go carting and a lot of childrens activities.

While I did not get to ski, Mt Hood is simply an amazing mountain that should be visited. The mountain is the highlight of northern Oregon and, as long as the weather is good, is visible from nearly all northern Oregon as well. Whether you...More

The day would be the best way to go, we opted for just one trip down the alpine slide. Small children have to be over 3 to ride with an adult . And over 48" to ride alone.
