Loon Mountain Resort Opens Ninja Wild and Bike Park for Summer Season
Lincoln, NH (May 27, 2023) Loon Mountain Resort has kicked off the 2023 summer season with the opening of Ninja Wild, mountain bike park and Gondola Skyride.
Outdoor Ninja Course
Saturday commenced the opening of Ninja Wild—an outdoor ninja course packed with wilderness-themed obstacles, putting kids and adults to the test as they bound between a variety of obstacles and close out the course by rallying up the warped mountain. Located at the Governor Adams Lodge, this activity is the first of its kind in the White Mountains and is perfect for those looking to get outside and put their speed, strength, and agility to the test.
Guests can purchase Ninja Wild sessions ranging from all-day, one-hour or all summer. Friday Night sessions are also an option for those looking to kick start the weekend with an evening adventure.
Mountain Bike Park Expands
