This weekend Epic Discovery, the Vail Mountain summertime theme park formerly known as Adventure Ridge, transitions to fall hours (open Fri.-Sun from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sep. 9-Oct. 20). In other words, winter’s coming, and the clock’s ticking if you have yet to experience the inaugural run of Vail Resorts’ new Forest Flyer mountain coaster and Game Creek Zipline Tour.

Yeah, we know, Nature Boy/Girl. You’re all about “keeping it real” by shredding single track and summiting 14ers and this “experience” seems as manufactured as a day at Disney World (particularly when an all-inclusive day pass to Epic Discovery costs $84 more than a ticket to the Magic Kingdom). We thought the same thing. Until we actually booked a Game Creek Zipline Tour package, and had a blast. Still not convinced? We’ll let our photos do the talking. . .
