For the summer of 2017 we have packed the base area with fun activities! In the base area surrounding the great lawn and patio, guest of all ages and abilities will have several different activities to choose from. Want to embrace the history of Bogus Basin? Visit the Shafer Butte Mining Company, where you can pan for gold and mine for gems! Interested in experiencing what it’s like to jump higher than you have ever before? Hop on the new bungee trampolines! Feel like a vertical challenge? Take to the rock climbing wall and conquer all 4 routes!
Gem Mining & Gold Panning
Dig deep into the history of Bogus Basin, where swindlers used to manufacture fool’s gold and pawn it off to the unsuspecting shop owners in Boise. Bogus Basin got its name in the early 1860’s from these gold swindlers who used to manufacture fake gold in the basin. Purchase your pay dirt in the Basin retail shop, then take a stab at striking gold or finding gems in the Shafer Butte Mining Co. sluice. A great activity for all ages.
Some restrictions may apply*
Do you like the idea of defying gravity and flying more than 20 feet into the air? Dream of doing front flips and back flips without fear of falling? All of that is just a bungee trampoline session away. Strap into a secure harness and jump to your heart’s content.
The harder you bounce the higher you go, allowing you to do flips like never before!
Restrictions: 40 lbs – 200 lbs
Strap into the rock climbing wall’s auto belay system and take off. Find the right route and reach the top of the 32 foot structure only to be softly let down by the auto belay system. With four different routes to choose from, there is something for everyone. Built in timers makes this activity ideal for those who would like to challenge a friend.
Restrictions: 40 lbs – 250 lbs
