New Hampshire Adventure Parks
GET YOUR PULSE GOING
Go on an adventure in the White Mountains
Our NH Inn is just minutes away from some great White Mountains Attractions, including adventure parks.
In the wintertime, people come to these slopes for breathtaking views of snow-covered Mt. Washington. In the summertime, there’s plenty of fun activities on over 225 acres of White Mountain National Forest land. Gondolas accommodate four people and take you to the 4,000 foot summit. The ZipRider zipline descends 2,100 feet over treetops as riders are suspended on cables. Alpine Disc Golf offers the challenge of competing against others to use the fewest number of throws from a starting area to reach, and have your disc land in, an elevated basket. And families will enjoy the ½ Mile Loop at the base area of Wildcat and nearby forest, following paw prints while learning about the natural surroundings at information stations along the route. Preview the attractions at www.skiwildcat.com/explore-the-resort/activities-and-events/summer-activities.aspx
The Mountain Adventure Park includes the Mountain Coaster, twisting and turning through the woods. Summer Tubing lets riders take the conveyor to the top and then ride 400 feet to the bottom. The Giant Swing tests the bravery of three riders. Enjoy the sensation of flying on the Soaring Eagle as you are suspended 700 feet down the mountainside. Scenic Chairlift Rides allow you to cool off while enjoying great views of North Conway and Mt Washington. Spider Mountain tests users’ ability to make it through netting and slide town from the top. Kids love the bouncy houses and the Bungy Tranpoline. The Kids Ropes Course lets little ones get into the trees with bridges and zip lines while C-More’s Mining Adventure has them panning for gems on the 30-foot water filled sluice. Finally, take the chairlift ride to the summit, then hike a mile to Black Cap Mountain. Learn more at www.cranmore.com/Things-to-Do/Summer-Activities/Mountain-Adventure-Park
Attitash Mountain Resort
Two slides provide thrills as riders twist and turn down the chutes. The Nor-Easter Mountain Coaster also evokes heart-pounding excitement with a 2,880-foot journey down the mountainside on twin, stainless steel rails. You can free-fall jump from a platform onto a 60-by-60 foot airbag, just like the stuntmen do. Outdoor water slides include the Aquaboggan and Sidewinder while the little ones can enjoy Buddy Bear’s Play Pool. From June through Labor Day, stables are open for those who want to saddle up. The terrain at Attitash lends itself to downhill and cross-country mountain biking. This fun park is just a 15-minute drive from the Christmas Farm Inn. Open daily 10 am to 6 pm June to September. Spring and fall limited opening times, please check first. Learn more about Attitash attractions at http://www.attitash.com/alpine-slide/

History of Christmas Farm Inn Name
The Inn is not 'Christmas themed' but rather received its name from the gifting of the property at Christmas time – renamed the ‘Christmas Farm’ in honor of the season and spirit of the gift.
