REVIEWS OF Rush Mountain Adventure Park IN South Dakota

Brandy Mangante

We had a blast here. No lines and set in the most beautiful setting.

Marlys Gordon

This place is great! A unique park with lots of fun rides things to do. Be ready to climb the hill to see everything, but if that's not a problem, you have to spend a day here.

Sam Fox

I love the roller coaster

Trent Hunter

Hannah was outstanding tour guide! And the coster and zipline was awesome!

Knoia Dye

Had a blast. Our tour guide Joe was awesome and very informative and had a great sense of humor. The coaster was my second favorite followed by the 7d shooter games. I recomend stopping if your in the area you won't regret it

Ann Meyer

The food was delicious, the beer was ice cold and the staff were friendly. The restaurant itself is very clean. Next time we visit Keystone we will definitely eat there again!!

Reba Dudansky

Coaster ride was awesome!

Tim M

Had a blast. The cave tour was a lot of fun and would really recommend spending the day there. Buy a wrist band for the day because it's really spendy.

Danelle Newman

We had so much fun we went back again

Steven Levenhagen

A great day for family

Nick bridges

If you want to feel like your going to be ejected from the side of a mountain doing 70 mph on a track sledge, this is a must.. cant wait to go back.

Brandi RedCloud

The park was so much fun!!!! It was not crowded. We have a 2 and 3 yr old. An 11 and 12 yr old. 2 adults. We all had fun. It was raining and the deck was really slippery so I did fall down the stairs but no one saw me so no one cared. So I guess I don't really care either! It was great!

Jim Zabel

The coaster is really fast!!! My kids loved it. Way better than the Alpine slides in keystone.

Brian Muir

We had a ton of fun here. The roller coaster and the ropes course was a blast. My six year old son was very brave on the high parts of the ropes course...very fun! The cave was amazing as well. After being in the hot sun most of the day, we were able to cool off with a one hour hike in the cave.

Shawn Rushton

My family spent a few hours at Rush Mountain this past weekend and everyone had a blast. I wish we had planned for more time here and will make Rush Mountain a bigger part of our trip next time. Every employee we came across was friendly and helpful.

james hartline

Is not handicapped friendly

katherine bergdahl

For a rainy day, this was a great option for an attraction near Key Stone that is open off-season. We were able to get the wrist band for unlimited attractions for $37. I thought this was a great deal considering everything was open except the ropes course (due to rain). We were able to get a private cave tour (just two of us), interactive video game, zipline, and coaster. I thought the cave tour led by Mathais was top notch. The coaster was really fast and the speed could be semi-controlled by the individual car operator. Highly recommend and probably even better with good weather.

Tara Baker

This place is so much fun. Most affordable mountain coaster I've found and it was SO exhilarating! Wish we could've recorded the ride but that's not allowed. I also wish they had a family option for buying pictures, as they are $10 each so if you have multiple individual riders, it can add up quick. Still with it though! A great finish to a day visiting Mt. Rushmore!

The Happy Dude Person TDM

This place is awesome! I recommend you go to Rush Mountain Adventure Park on a slow day for maximum enjoyment. Although the Gunslinger attraction is a bit loud for me.

Sheldon Bonner

Great view and a must see

Jolin Goulet

Went with our kids ages 11 and 5. Everyone loved it. So much to do for $50 all day pass. The cave was an hour tour that was super cool and went quick. The roller coaster was so fun!! Great for the whole family for a great price!!

Scott Ames

We only did the cave tour and loved it. The other activities looked fun but we didn't have time.

Linda Kranig

The ride was fun. But a lot of steps to climb to find out information about what each ride and how it costs. More signs would be useful.

John Guy

the roller coaster here is like no other. It is a real thrill ride!! A real edge of the seat adventure!!

Michelle Forster

My kids loved this place! Ages 7, 11 and 18. Very clean and friendly staff!

Janet Frost

Great place easy to move around the park. Lots of fun!!!

Robert Kuwik

This was our second trip to Rush Mountain, and we will definitely be coming back for another. Every interaction with the staff was amazingly pleasant, and the park itself is incredibly clean. If you do not stop here while you are in the blackhills you would be doing a disservice to your family!

Nathan Gesner

This was kind of fun but we had the impression there were more activities than what's actually there. Seemed over-priced but we still had a pretty good time. The cave tour guide appeared to be 14 years old, spoke fast and quiet, and stumbled over his rehearsed lines constantly. I would have rather listened to a recording.

Marshall Spezman

A great day for the whole family!

LA Olejar

Great rides great staff . Reasonable for all day rides

James Nelson

Jewl(the tour guide not the rock) did a great tour made everything fun and interesting. The coaster was great as well

Evan Sundby

We had a fantastic time here! Our tour guide was very informative and fun to talk to. The staff was very friendly and helpful all around. I highly recommend spending a day here.

Jonathan Sandidge

While visiting Custer and Keystone area to see mount Rushmore, We heard a LOT of hype about this supposedly amazingly cool Mountain coaster. It would have been alright if i was like 9 years old, Not very much fun and doesn't go very fast at ALL. Decently priced though. Seemed clean and cave was very interesting, Just be prepared to park on a hill and climb a little

Nikki Beers

LOVED this place! Spent the entire day here.. kiddos enjoyed it! Highly recommend.

Kathy Brogoitti

Most well done of any family amusement's and caves we've been to... anywhere!

Carlos Montanez

Loved this tour of the Rushmore Cave. The tour guide was really good. His knowledge of the cave and its history and his witty jokes were a perfect match for this tour.

Julie Welsh

Buy the wrist band, great time with your kids! Exciting rides.

steve pope

Little pricey but my son had fun.

Caanis Cooper19

Such a fun little place nestled in the Black Hills.

rod dallum

Fun for the kids. They had a blast

Duane Bartelson

We had a very great time!! There's not many places where a senior citizen can go to have fun and feel like a kid again..

Miranda Ruesch

Staff were able to answer questions with a smile. The price to ride the Rushmore Mountain Coaster is a little high for the 30 seconds you spend riding it and the 10 minutes you spend waiting in line. Everything else about the place was fantastic.

Lance Zimmerman

Visited for the first time today, it's incredible!! I was a little hesitant at first because of the cost but I'm glad we went! There is something for all ages and our girls did everything and loved it all! We didn't do the cave tour simply because the kids were played out but we will definitely do it next time. The place is neat, clean and they have a fantastic staff. Each member is friendlier and more helpful than the next, we interacted with no less than ba dozen and I have nothing but good to say, super friendly and helpful to the adults and do their best to connect with the kiddos regardless of the age. 2 thumbs up and we will be back!

Sheldon Woods

Fun. The shooting gallery was cool

Kristina Whiteley

Super fun place! Definitely worth a trip! Kaden (I think was his name) was super good at story telling!! Beautiful gift shop as well!

Jessica Thompson

It was alot of fun, I love every second out there

Cindy Millett

This place really is a mountain of fun! Took my 10 year old grandson & 5 year old granddaughter - both had a blast! The Wingwalker Challenge is a great confidence builder - both kids could have spent a long time exploring it, but we had so much to experience! We all loved the cave, zip line & 7D rides, but our favorite by far is the coaster!

Cody Howe

It was an absolutely wonderful experience from the cave to the coaster and the high ropes course. The kids loved it! Get the wrist band for sure!

Aaron Derrera

Cassie was a great tour guide through the cave!

H Schmidt

Our family had a really good time here! The kids especially loved the cave tour. The only drawback is the huge hill and stairs to get to some of the buildings. It might be nice to have a shuttle or tram of some sort in the future. Overall, we had tons of fun!!

Ryan Branson

The kids loved all the things to do here and the staff was very polite and helpful, definitely recommend for family fun.

Tyce Bradford

coaster was great !! get the wristbands better bang for your buck!!

Kara Richards

Mountain coaster was so fun, parents and 3 and 6 year old kids loved it! The cave was cool too, tour guide Kaden was very knowledgeable but was a bit rude to our 3 year old who was acting like a typical 3 year year old.

Brent Villalobos

Fun place when kids are bored worth the monuments and wildlife. Lines can move slowly sometimes but it thins out around 3pm. You can get in plenty of rides in the late afternoon.

Chris Cynova

Great place! My 11 year old son loved the roller-coaster and the zip line. The caves were amazing and beautiful! The harness area (I forget it's proper name) is cool and thrilling and a great way to face fears of heights.

Roy Thomas

It was fun. But the climbing area I think would be fun for adults too

Bethany Colyar

Wow. This park is truly amazing. Kayden led us on a cave tour that was fun and educational. The zipline was exhilarating, and the Mountain Coaster is probably one of my favorite things about the area. Will definitely be going again.

Jay S

Top notch attraction! The owners are pouring the profits back into the facility and it shows. New rides every year, everything is clean, the food is tasty, the employees are polite and conversational. Also has RV parking. Lots of stairs though, this definitely earned the "mountain" part of the name. Ride the personal roller coaster as often as you can!

Doug Cookston

The zip line is fun. The Gunslinger is more for gamers. The mountain coaster is a fast ride. We rode it 7 times. The Wing Walker is a cool challenge for everyone. The Rushmore Cave tour is a fun way to spend an hour. It is a little expensive.

kenzie d

Amazing place! Hannah was our guide for the cave tour and she was the best. Talked to all the kids we had with and answered questions. Absolute sweetheart! Would deff come again over and over.

Josh Glenn

Great experience! Sawyer was awesome and knew so much about the caves!

A.G. Rich

The cave is a must. All the other stuff you will find in other attractions around the country. But this cave walk is awesome. Be prepared to walk about 800 meters in a loop, up, down, up and down. I'm 280 pounds and I was able to do it. So make it happen. #MERICA

K. Martin

Nice place. Only did the coaster ride, but it was a blast. Staff was very nice.

Galaxy :3

It's a good time spending here

Dawn Bennett

Great time and good value!

Jenny B

Roller coaster is super fun and we had no wait on a saturday in the middle of summer. Very clean and neat place.

Shirley Calico

Great place to have fun

Tony Brix

Cave tour was entertaining. Couldn't touch anything in the cave and had to just stay on the path. Kids thought it was a little long.

Bill Brandt

One of the best thrill rides I've ever been on

Trevor Lakoduk

Great little place to take people of all ages. Recommend the cave tour.

Lindy Herbel

It's a cute little amusement park. Definitely for kids more then adults. The roller coaster ride was very unusual and fun. I didn't get to see the cave yet, but I enjoyed every thing else I did. I will probably go back to see the cave. I recommend it for families.

Tuna Fish

Cave was awesome! My kiddo is 4 and could go on every thing so huge plus!!

Matthew McDonnell

The alpine coaster was insane!! I rode it three times but definitely could’ve gone for 20. The employees were friendly, the grounds were well maintained, and everything could be shared with the whole family. The rope course was intricate, the 7D ride was exhilarating, and the zip line was super cool, too! I also loved the cave tours. Would go back in a heartbeat for the adventure cave tour and the alpine coaster.

Brigid Holland

Cave tour was great. Fun stuff for kids. A bit pricy but not out of line for a tourist area.

Gwen Cowie

Kids had a blast. Need to add water fountains and water bottle filling stayio ns

Katie Weber

A great break for the kids during vacation when most activities are adult focused.

Krispea Project

Great place. Very educational and has rides and activities. Just bring anti bug spray because of the season. Love the cave tour and the rides.


This was an amazing feat. America strong American proud.

Anita Kapelke

Great place, cave tour was interesting and fun!

Rich Bonner Jr

Attended during the locals weekend. Was a decent price/fun ratio, but would've been expensive without the discount. A season pass may be the most cost effective option


Great in the off season (discounted prices) even during the season though for what you get it is very awesome!

Brian Clarey

Fun afternoon. A few fun rides, and one of the best caves I've been to. Only complaint is the ticket prices are a little high for the number of attractions offered. Lots of stairs and steep climbs. The roller coaster is fantastic!

Jon Weber

Holy cow this was amazing. I didn't have 5 star expectations going in but was thoroughly impressed. We had a 4yr and a 2yr old and they had plenty to do. The whole family had a blast.

Carissa Raye Todd

Do the wrist band, otherwise it's not worth it. The zipline was a joke, but the coaster was a blast

Josh Tchida

Kids had a blast. Lines moved fast.

İpek Er

We stopped here after visiting Mt. Rushmore to please our 4 year old son. The facility has a nice architecture and is "embedded" in nature. The staff are very friendly and helpfull. We only had time to take the roller coaster but my advice to you is to come early and purchase a daily pass. It soo worth it! There are so many activities for kids!! The coaster was so good that even as adults we felt like kids again. I laughed and yelled the whole ride and ended up with tear of joy in my eyes. We had to carve my son off the floor to the car. I definitely recommend this place to everyone! I wish we had more time for the cave tour and 10 more coaster rides!! Thank God there is a "next time".

Greg Stiefel

We had a super time, the roller coaster and Zipline were really fun!

Lauren Welk

Great attractions for all ages and welcoming to families. Be prepared to be on your feet for a while due to the attractions being scattered across the lot. But otherwise an attraction that I highly recommend for families!

Anna Woehler

I have been here multiple times and never get bored! The cave tour is fun, virtual video games change so you can have a new experience for repeat visits, and the coaster is super fun! I can’t wait to check out the ropes course for my next visit!

Rachel Kastet

Great place for older kids! They loved all you had to offer! The roller coaster and Zipline were awesome. You would benefit from a playground on site for kids to play while waiting for others to finish rides. Also, two lines to do the ropes course would be wonderful. The little tykes kids had to wait in line with adults and older kids. There were often only 1-2 little kids on the course because of this. This led to a longer wait than necessary for both lines.

angie marowelli

We had so much fun!!!! Awesome friendly Employees!!

Jerry Campbell

Fun place for the whole family

aidalyn walsh

Very nicely maintained. Loved the coaster! The other attractions were cool, too, but the lines took a long time.

Richelle Squires

This place was so much fun. The coaster is crazy fast. The zipline line was long so id do that early. They have a great cave tour make sure you check in at the caves to get a time [no one told us, but they were able to accomidate us]. We didnt have time to do the 7D adventure, but some other kids were raving about it. It seems a little pricey for the adventure pass but if you have a day to spend, its so worth it! I hope we can go again soon

Linda Davis

For older kids, need upper body stength obstacle course.

Bobbi MacPherson

We have done many cave tours all over the country and this was by one of the best. Kevin was great, but the actual path and experience in the cave were great. If you are over 6'3", they will let you go but you won't like it. My son is 6'3" and barely made it. Hit his head a time or two. I am 5'7" and had to bend over several times too. Beautiful cave though and the kids LOVED the mountain coaster. I highly recommend this place!

Darlene fernandez

My daughter, grandchildren and I went on the Mountain Coaster ride. It was a blast. We loved being able to be in control of the speed as we went around the pig tail turns. Every interaction with staff was pleasant, from the ticket sales, to the staff passing by, to the staff that helped us get safely on the ride. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We will certainly be going back and would highly recommend Rush Mountain

Aaron Galuzzi

We had so much fun at this place! Came for the cave tour (which was pretty good), but ended up having even more fun with all the rides and activities. The roller coaster is awesome! You can easily ride it 3-5 times (assuming there's no lines, which was the case when we were there in early Aug). The ropes course is also very cool. It feels pricey, but I'd highly recommend the wristband for unlimited rides. Buying individual tickets doesn't get you very far.

Mikka Croskell

We showed up right as a storm was coming in and they tried to get us on but sadly could not. They were so sweet and refunded our tickets since we were passing through. The kid even put an X through the tickets so we could atleast keep them as souvenirs which was amazing. Next time I'm out there I will definitely be going back just because of how amazing and kind they were.


This was the most amazing tourist attraction I've ever experienced as a local in the black hills. Can't wait to get season passes next year. Cassie did an awesome job on the cave tour!! So much fun I highly recommend to everyone. The price is high but well worth it

Kristen Kohlbrand

The Valentine's event was wonderful. It was nice to experience the attraction without the crowds.

Kristie Wheeler

They even have a haunted house tour in October that is amazing!!! Get the cave, plus the outside rides. Plus the kid's love it in the summer. This is a must see place!!!

Ashley Cooper

Kevin was amazing during the Rush Mountain cave tour. He was extremely funny, patient, and knowledgeable. He answered every question with ease. We had a blast 10/10 would do this again!

Michelle Main

Fun! Check the heights of your kids before buying tickets. There are restrictions.


One of the more fun things around to do, just don't expect a like six flags experience and a bit expensive.

Willie Ball

My grandson and I really enjoyed this place

Jen Thor

Lots of fun! My kids enjoyed the cave and rides.

Juni Cohen

Loved it.10/10 would do aware the penny crushing machine is a buck not fifty cents.if you wash rocks buy the better bag check out the skywalk thing and the cave.potties are very nice.

Kenny Williams

Great for the whole family!

Tony Bendorf

The rollercoaster and 7D video game shooting theater was awesome. My daughter loved the climbing play ground they have also. The cave was cool also but its not for the handicap or elderly.

Diane M. Rettinhouse

Gorgeous ride through the Black Hills National Forest - breathtaking views. Fun, adventurous and educational too. Something for everyone. **I found accessibility for people with limitations to be difficult though** I was challenged by the amount of stairs to entrance and strenuous cave walk. Beautiful location, facilities, equipment and staff. Gift shop, bathrooms, snacks, gifts and souvenirs. We (2 adults) were there for a couple hours; however, it was raining. If you have kids, nice weather or plan more activities (coaster, zip line, challenge, guided tour, panning for gold, etc), plan on several hours. Although signs along the way gave no distance - enjoy the ride!

Erin Moyer

Very fun place in fortunately if there is lightning they close down the rides for safety which can be pretty boring and sucks when you pay that much money to be there. The cave is pretty cool.

Edited Visions

Probably the funnest spot on our whole trip. So much to do there. Was the coolest cave I have ever been in and was easy to tour for a group of 8 to 38 year Olds. Then you can spend the rest of the day. Trying out all of there fun rides. The mountain roller-coaster is a must. That thing really moves. It isn't the cheapest visit but I would recommend springing for the unlimited rides that includes a cave tour. You get to do it all and the kids will definitely want to ride the coaster more than once. I think a few of our kids rode over 10 times.

Jason Van Beusekom

Over hyped like all adventure Parks but what really made this place nice was the caves.

Karl Hehr

Great way to spend a day! Get the wristbands and get there early so the lines are non-existent! Lots of rides in before 10am!

Angela Wordekemper

The kids AND the parents had a blast! The staff was friendly & knowledgeable. Will be a definite stop on all future trips to SD!

Jacinda Larson

A very fun excursion on a Black Hills vacation!! For a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids- ages 8 and 11) we paid $205 for unlimited wristbands. We did everything (ropes course, roller coaster, virtual reality game, zip ride and cave tour) once. We arrived to the park at 10 am and didn’t have to wait at all to ride the roller coaster which was awesome. The roller coaster was everyone’s favorite thing! Super fast and just really fun. We did the ropes next and didn’t have to wait at all for that either. The top level is fun and scary! We all loved the ropes course. A lot more people started coming to the park (it was 11am) and lines started to become an issue. We waited for an hour for the zip ride which is a 1 minute ride. But it was fun - kids loved it. We did VR next and waited about 15 minutes. Pretty fun- kids loved it. We ate lunch- decent food and prices. Last was the cave tour. We only waited a few minutes for it. It was about an hour long which was too long for this family but we had a great tour guide. Her name was Jules. She was funny, smart, entertaining and super well spoken. She was only 14! Couldn’t hardly believe that. She was awesome!! We spent about 4 hours at the park. If we went right when it opened at 9 we would have been able to do it all in 3 hours. Go early for shorter lines!

Codi McKee

Great place! Expensive but worth it!

Codi Rae Tchida

Great staff. Fun for the whole family.


Lots of fun but prepare to traverse many, many steps and acute angled ramps. The cave had offer 400 steps on its tour. The coaster was excellent.

Biraj shrestha

Went in just to spend an hour that we had to waste, ended up staying 4 hours instead.

Hope Herren

Absolutely great time! Plenty of activities for anyone! Kaden is a fantastic guide for the cave tour.

Becca Algozzino

The kids enjoyed the rides!

Candace Ballstadt

We experienced the cave in 2007 and it was great. Went back this year, 2018 and they have added so many great rides. Buy a wrist band for each family member and enjoy at least half a day of unlimited rides, which also imcludes the cave tour. This really could be made into a whole day trip. Not very handicap accessible, due to the mountain like terrain but the coaster is accessible. Plan to hike up steep inclines to most of the activities. We went on a Monday in August and had no lines to deal with meaning our kids went on ride after ride after ride.

James McIntire

We came here mainly for the cave tour but found so much more! The ropes course is suitable for almost all ages and the coaster ride is one of the most fun I've been on. You can experience it at full speed or at your own pace. Definitely a must visit on your Black Hills vacation.

Nanik Chugani

Nice place for the family... an adventure in the mountain. Kids loved it!

Marilyn Ahrendt

This place is awesome! Great place place to spend the day with your family

Ramon Barajas

Cassie gave a great tour. This cave was awesome
