My Mom came to visit recently, and took us up to Jiminy Peak for a couple of nights.  Jiminy Peak, in Adams, MA, is a ski resort, primarily.  But in the non-snow months, they have what they call Mountain Adventure Park and Aerial Adventure Park.  With all our crazy adventures in Guatemala this summer, the kids felt they had already done the Aerial Adventures, that consisted of zip lines, and a ropes course.  So we opted for the Mountain Adventure.

For one price, we got bracelets which allowed us to go on any of the rides for the whole day.  Actually, the first day the weather was too cold and rainy.  So, after about 20 minutes, we gave up and turned in our bracelets to try again the next day.

And the next day was glorious.  The kids all enjoyed the kid zone, with the usual bounce house, a mini ropes course, a playground, and a spider web climber.  Then they moved on to the rock wall.  Jor Man and Campster mastered the rock wall - making it to the top on all the levels multiple times.

Big Dad and Jor Man went in the big swing.  I didn't get a picture of that - but let's just say you don't want to do that one right after eating.  No one tossed their cookies, although I nearly did just watching them.

We broke for lunch - which consisted of the largest plate of Nachos I have ever seen.  Yum!

The bungy-jump followed, with Jor Man able to do a double flip before he was through.  Campster was flipping singles.  Sher Bear just loved to fly up high.

The mountain coaster and luge (two separate rides) were the hands-down favorites.  I gave up counting how many times they all went up and down.  Big Dad did double duty as only one of the girls could go with him at a time, and they weren't tall enough to go on their own.  (Nope, I didn't do it.)  I stayed with the non-riding child.

At the end of the day, the hotel pool and wonderful hot tubs were happily received by all.  What a great place.  We will be back.  Thanks to my Mom who made it all possible.  :)

Wish you were here!
