Kid friendly summer activities in Vail

If you're looking for family friendly activities Vail during the summer, Epic Discovery is your answer. Vail's mountain top experience challenges and thrills guests with adventure courses, ziplines, a mountain roller coaster, tubing, a climbing wall, a bungee trampoline, and more. Hop in to the Eagle Bahn Gondola and enjoy the serene views as you travel above 10,000ft ultimately arriving at the Epic Discovery center.

With numerous activities, it's easy to spend an entire day flying across seven ziplines or tackling the adventure rope courses. If you're interested in a more relaxing itinerary, Epic Discovery has you covered. Vail's newly installed a new Wildlife Exploration Trail is a great way for families to learn more about the native wildlife in the area. The trail has hands-on activities for children that showcase Vail's plant life and wildlife capabilities. These "learn-through-play" features are a fantastic way for children to study nature while having a blast on the mountain.

Looking for a good place to eat on the mountain after a day of Epic adventure? Bistro Fourteen is the perfect on-mountain dining option. Named after the view of the 14,000ft Mount of the Holy Cross, Bistro Fourteen offers casual, sit-down dining and a full bar. Their menu features something for everyone including a full kids menu. Vail offers lift & lunch ticket packages, where guests receive a dining credit when purchasing a gondola pass. Visit the Vail Village or Lionshead ticket office or call for more information.
