Skibowl Adventure Park offers loads of family-activities during the summer months, like trampolines, alpine slides, dirt biking, and much more.
During the summer months Skibowl, up on Mt. Hood and only an hour from Portland, Oregon in Government Camp, is open despite having no snow. Instead of offering skiing and other winter activities they operate an adventure park with a whole assortment of family-friendly activities.
- THE ADVENTURE PARK IS OPEN WEEKENDS DURING THE SPRING UNTIL JUNE 12TH – WEATHER PERMITTING. After June 12th they are open 7 days a week.
They offer different types of passes. We got the Action Pass that combines over 20 attractions into one pass. The pass costs around $39, but if you have military id you get the active duty members half off and a discount on the rest of the family.
The Pacific Northwest’s only ½ Mile Dual Alpine Slide! Enjoy a drop of 350 feet over the half mile ride with average speeds around 20 MPH. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before they will explain it to you.
We saw lots of people mountain biking down the mountain while we were riding the Alpine slide. It looked like they had some good trails. The same lift that takes you up for the Alpine slide takes you up with your bikes. A pass to mountain bike is $32. Here’s a video of what to expect on the Alpine Slide.
Aqua Rollers, also known as Human Hampster Balls, is the sport of rolling around in a large game area or in a shallow pool of water in a giant inflatable ball. Kids must be at least 3 years old and 48″ tall to participate.
They have bungee trampolines for larger and smaller people/kids. Tip: make sure they don’t secure the harness to tight, it will make jumping a lot less fun.
The Kid’s Super Fun Play Zone is 2,400 square feet of kid’s-only playground! Dive into the adventure with the enormous ball pit, followed by the bungee room, climbing tubes, slides, rollers and net walks. To be honest my husband and I also had a lot of fun playing in here, even though we were unsure if we were suppose to be in there.
These were some of the activities we did while we were here. Unfortunately we didn’t give ourselves enough time to do everything that was included on our passes. Next time we go we will arrive much earlier in the day.
Other activities – There were lots of activities we didn’t do like the bungee jump or the zip lines. These types of activities cost more money and have different age and height restrictions.
