Breckenridge Ski Resort has renamed the Peak 8 Fun Park, Epic Discovery and with good reason! Epic Discovery was named because Breckenridge’s signature summer activity has grown so much that it now encompasses Peaks 7 and 8. This summer there will be the addition of a newer, bigger Gold Summit Climbing wall, a new ten tower zip line and the new Aplineer Challenge Course, a multi stage ropes course nestled high in the trees above Peak 7. All of this is new and in addition to Peak 8 stalwarts such as the God Runner Coaster, Mineshaft Maze and of course the Alpine slide.
Here is a breakout of just some of the various activities you and your family can enjoy at the new and improved Epic Discovery Fun Park.
