Rushmore Tramway Adventures

Rushmore Tramway Adventures is an exciting adventure park which includes a modern scenic chairlift, an alpine slide, zipline, summer tubing hill and a new Aerial Park that offers a ropes course for climbers of all skill-levels.

Our Commitment to You

Rushmore Tramway Adventures is taking a number of actions to protect the health and well-being of our employees and customers and to control the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in accordance with the expert guidance of the CDC and local public health authorities. Your Adventure Experience may look different as we navigate this dynamic situation. Our commitment to you is that we will continue to make proactive decisions that are grounded in transparency and science – for our employees and the people we serve.

Keeping Everyone Safe

All customers are asked to wear a non-surgical facial mask for entrance into the park. Further, each guest will be screened prior to entering to prevent the spread of the virus. Additionally, we continue to observe elevated cleaning and sanitizing protocols set forth by the CDC to help prevent the spread of all germs within our park. Currently, our cleaning practices exceed public health guidelines.

Additional steps we’re taking include: more frequent cleaning and sanitizing of high-contact surface areas, increased hand washing by employees, implementing hygiene stations, making gloves available to all employees, and supplementing  hand washing with hand sanitizer.

What's Open?

We have officially opened as of May 22, 2020 and are fully operational. All attractions will be open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This includes the Aerial Adventure Park, 800 ft. Zipline, Pinnacle Zip Tour, Tubing Hill, Chairlift, Alpine Slide, and Mountain-top Grille.

Social Distancing and More

We will be observing extra control measures to maximize physical distance between patrons. People that live in the same household may ride together on the Chairlift whereas others are asked to ride separately on the following chairs. Traffic flow has also been redirected throughout the park to minimize face to face contact and social gathering.

Getting Outside and Avoiding Crowds

We are naturally well ventilated because our Adventure Park is spread out of 100 acres of beautiful Black Hills Forrest. Our guest seating areas have been spread out to accommodate social distancing.

Enjoying Your Black Hills Vacation in 2020

The emotional toll of social quarantine is substantial. Our intention is to provide the appropriate environment in which people can still enjoy outdoor recreational activities without increasing the threat to personal and community safety.
