- About Sunapee
Newbury, NH - (May 9, 2016) - The Adventure Park at Mount Sunapee opened in the summer of 2012 with a Canopy Zip-Line Tour, two loops in the Aerial Challenge Course, nine holes of Disc Golf and chairlift rides. This summer the Park will open with a Canopy Zip-Line Tour, four loops in the Aerial Challenge Course, 18-holes of Disc Golf, 18-holes of Miniature Golf, a Big Airbag Jump and Climbing Wall Tower, the Beck Brook Mining Flume, chairlift rides and the Evolution Bike Park. The Bike Park is by far the biggest addition to the Adventure Park since 2012.
The Evolution Bike Park opened last summer with one downhill trail from the summit of South Peak and by the end of the summer there were four trails for riders of all abilities. As more trails were added momentum grew throughout the summer to the point where most of the rental bikes were out on the mountain every day. This summer there are plans for two more trails and the bike rental fleet has been expanded with new Scott bikes specifically designed for downhill riding. Guides are available for beginners or experienced riders who want to give downhill biking a try.
The creation of the “Play All Day” package in 2013 in partnership with the State of New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation really increased the popularity of the Adventure Park. For one flat rate visitors to the Park can enjoy the Aerial Challenge Course, Big Airbag Jump and Climbing Wall Tower, Disc Golf (including rental discs), Miniature Golf, Beck Brook Mining Flume, chairlift rides and the Sunapee State Beach. With breakfast and lunch served at the Beck Brook Deli in the Welcome Center and Frost Top 2 serving ice cream anyway you want it, adventurers can stay fueled up while spending the whole day in the Park and at the Sunapee State Beach.
The Adventure Park with the Evolution Bike Park has grown into one of the most popular summer/fall attractions in the Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee region of New Hampshire. This summer the Adventure Park will outdraw the annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair, which for years has been the cornerstone of Mount Sunapee’s summer business.
All of the activities in the Park can be enjoyed individually or with friends and family. One of the most common reservations for the 2 ½ hour Canopy Zip-Line Tour, which can accommodate up to eight people per tour, is made up of three generations from the same family. “The Adventure Park is a perfect fit to our brand,” says Ross Malaguti marketing manager. “Families and friends come to Mount Sunapee in the winter to spend quality time together and that’s exactly what is happening during the summer and fall.”For more information about the Adventure Park at Mount Sunapee visit www.mountsunapee.com.
