Cranmore Offers Discount Passes On Pink Friday
New Hampshire’s Cranmore Mountain will host Pink Friday on June 27 with discounted Mountain Adventure Passes to benefit the Vermont-New Hampshire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
On Pink Friday, guests who don any article of pink clothing can purchase an unlimited Mountain Adventure Pass, a $39 value, for only $15. The entire price of admission will be donated to Komen Vermont-New Hampshire.
The pass offers unlimited, full-day access to the Mountain Adventure Park: the Mountain Coaster, the Giant Swing, Summer Tubing, the tandem-rider Soaring Eagle Zip Line, Spider Mountain and the Climbing Wall, and the Bouncy Houses.
Staff from Memorial Hospital in North Conway, a current Komen Grantee, will be on hand throughout the day to meet and greet and answer questions about breast cancer in general and Memorial’s efforts to treat and prevent the disease in particular.
Terry Farkas, Executive Director of Komen Vermont-New Hampshire, said representatives will be onsite with games, educational materials and freebies. “We are excited to work with Cranmore and Memorial Hospital to share our efforts to fight breast cancer in the local community.”
“Our employee-based committee, the Cranmore Cares program, wanted to support this local organization. Many members know someone who has been affected by the disease,” Cranmore’s Becca Deschene told SnoCountry.com.
The Mountain Coaster is a two-person coaster sled that offers thousands of feet of twisting, turning fun. The speed can be controlled for a leisurely ride or speedy downhill decent.
Cranmore brings its popular winter tubing attraction to summer with summer tubing on a special surface for a 400-foot ride down the mountain. Ride the Magic Carpet lift to the top of the slope with a tube and enjoy the slide back down.
The Giant Swing is a four-person attraction that lets riders arc high into the sky.
The Soaring Eagle Zip Line carries two riders backwards 700 feet and then zips forward to the base at approximately 35 miles per hour.
The Bungy Trampoline lets users fly high doing flips on one of four stations. The 65ft inflatable obstacle course, bouncy house and spider mountain climb offer hours of entertainment for guests of all ages.
A new climbing wall with routes marked for both beginner and experienced climbers give guests an alternative route to the top of Spider Mountain.
New for 2014, guests can enjoy lunch at the Meister Hut now serving summer favorites from the grill, before or after exploring the surrounding hiking trails, including the 1-mile hiking path to neighboring Black Cap Mountain.
Also new for 2014 is C-More’s Rock Mining Adventure. Families can pan for gemstones on the 30 ft. water filled sluice. Mining rough bags will be available for purchase at Sport Thoma Gift Shop and patrons will be able to take home precious keepsakes to remind them of their treasure hunting experience.
