Our first amazing ride with Rowdy Bear was Thursday afternoon. The kids (16-21) had such a great time we went back Friday night. Rowdy Bear offers a great deal to come back ($8.00 per person) so we went back to try the night ride. The ride was awesome! Even in 23 degree weather everyone had a blast - so much so we had to ride twice. The staff at Rowdy Bear is superb - their friendly, outgoing personalities provide an extra fun experience. Did I mention free hot cocoa? Rowdy Bear is a true must-do!

This is a very fun ride for all ages!! My teenagers and four year old enjoyed it immensely, especially at night with all of the lights!! We rode four times total during our week long stay and had so much fun each time! The staff is very friendly and the facility very clean!! We even bought some cute T-shirts while there!
