Visitors who want to relax and take in some scenery can ride the mountain chair lift, while those looking for something a little more fast-paced can ride the mountain coaster. Kids will have fun on the giant slide or summer tubing and hard-to-please teens can enjoy the giant trampoline, and giant swing. Both teens and adults looking to push themselves beyond the typical amusement park ride can spend an afternoon climbing and zipping through the Arial Adventure Park.

Located in North Conway Village in the heart of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Valley, Cranmore Mountain Resort has long been a popular destination for skiers. Through its $6 million investment project Cranmore has now expanded to offer summer activities that appeal not just to kids, but people of all ages.

“When a family comes to North Conway, they want to make sure they have something for their three or five year old to do and something for their 13 year old to do,” said Brian Fairbanks, owner of Cranmore Mountain Resort. “A couple could come up here, spend the afternoon and have a great time. A family could come up here with older kids and have a great time. Even grandma can come up here, ride the chair lift or sit on the deck on a sunny afternoon and have a great time.”

Cranmore Mountain Adventure Park has plenty for younger kids to do, but the central feature is the Aerial Adventure Park. This attraction includes swinging bridges, high platforms and zip lines up to 400 feet long. Couples looking for a not-so-typical day together and parents of teens who are seeking a bonding moment will find the Aerial Adventure Park challenging, but it leaves you with a sense of accomplishment.

“It’s not an effortless attraction,” said Ben Wilcox, Cranmore Mountain Resort president. “If you’re looking for an amusement ride where they just strap you in and you go, that’s not it.”

This interactive ropes course requires upper body strength, balance and a little bit of bravery.

“It really is an adventure that stresses your mind, body and emotions,” said Fairbanks. “It’s a rewarding experience.”

The park offers economical ticket options starting as low as $29 for unlimited all-day rides. You will need an advance reservation for the Aerial Adventure Park, and if you go with a group of 20 people or more, there are discounts available. Cranmore also makes it easy for busy people by offering tickets for sale online.

Those coming to the park for the day won’t be disappointed by the offering of activities in the surrounding Mount Washington Valley region. Within a short trip from Cranmore Mountain are eight golf courses, a dozen major family attractions and more than 200 name-brand outlets, boutiques and antique shops. Staying in the North Conway area is easy, too. There are nearly 40 hotels, resorts and inns to stay that are partnered with Cranmore Mountain Resort, many offering summer discounts to nearby attractions.
