Rushmore Tramway Adventures

Keystone, SD

Climb, ride, zip or slide at this premier attraction near Mt. Rushmore! Thrill to a speedy flight on our 800-ft. Zip Line, challenge the Aerial Adventure Park's above-ground obstacles, cruise down the 2000-ft. Alpine Slide, or ride the Chairlift up to enjoy our mountaintop park and Garden Cafe with Mt. Rushmore views.

Zip Line. On a quest for adrenaline-pumping action? Our Zip Line will satisfy. After getting harnessed you'll take a short hike up through the Aerial Park to the lofty starting deck to prepare for take-off. It's high-flying fun and a true test of daring.

Alpine Slide. Chairlift up to the summit park and enjoy the gardens and outdoor café before your sliding adventure begins. Then settle into a wheeled sled and head downhill at whatever pace you prefer. Slide gently down through the wildflowers or dash down the slope, over the dips, and around the banked corners. A handbrake gives the rider control and a small child can ride with an adult.

Aerial Adventure Park. Like a treetop jungle gym, this is the newest way to play in the trees. After you're trained in how to use your gear, you'll have approximately 90 minutes to negotiate the treetop obstacles. A harness keeps you tethered to safety lines as you defy gravity, testing your skills on suspended ladders, bridges, zip lines, and ropes. It's the ultimate nature tour and outdoor recreation at its best.

Scenic Chairlift and Garden Café. Glide up to our beautiful park to explore its flower-lined pathways, panoramic overlooks, lush lawn areas and soothing waterfalls. The aroma of sizzling burgers and brats will lure you to the open-air café. Enjoy grilled fare or a salad, along with an ice-cold beer or soda, while you gaze across at Mount Rushmore. Chairlift back down with a bird's-eye view of the Alpine Slide and Aerial Adventure Park action below you.

Aerial Park admission does not include the Presidential Slide and Tram.
