Every day from 11 am, the Monster Roller or the Mountain Cart whisks you down a forest road from the Spieljoch mountain station to the middle station. You can make the 6.5 km long descent on your own on the Monster Roller or as a couple - parent and child, for example - on the Mountain Cart. If the trail’s not long enough for you, you can carry on to the valley station. There’s on-site training how to use the downhill equipment before you set off and you can also be accompanied by a guide. Skill and courage required, fun and action guaranteed!
Surrounded by one of the most beautiful panoramas in the Zillertal valley, the Relax and Balance Park is located by the reservoir lakes below the mountain station. Beautiful trails go round the lakes - past the Eagle's Nest, the Rope Bridge, the Slackline Park and other balancing stations right next to the lake shore. By way of a slide with climbing frame or an embankment slide, you can make your way from the small lake to the large lake, where you can then treat yourself to a short break on the loungers surrounded by stunning scenery
The 300-metre long Flying Fox zip-line is not for those of a nervous disposition! Roughly a 5-minute walk up from the mountain station is the start of the Flying Fox with the most panoramic views. Against a breathtaking backdrop, you soar at an awesome height over the Spieljoch. If the ride’s too fast, simply pull on the on-board brake.
Right next to the Spieljochbahn mountain station there’s the chance to play and splash about in the Water Park. Children can have fun discovering the world of water on balancing stones, the water steps or the raft, dam the water with bits of wood or play with water jets. There’s also plenty of dry fun to be had on the two trampolines and the spider climbing frame next to the pond.
The Summit Barefoot Trail runs next to the Water Park and takes you via various natural layers of rock up to the Spieljoch summit at 1,920 metres. Sharpen your senses as you climb and sense nature with your bare feet. You walk across some stony ground, soft bark mulch and hard tree stumps to the top, where you’ll be rewarded with wonderful panoramic views of the Zillertal valley.
On the Spieljoch Climbing Mountain children can have their first go at climbing - supervised by professional guides. The experts at the climbing courses teach children the basic rock climbing skills. The climbing wall routes of varying degrees of difficulty provide the perfect training basis before setting off up the actual rock or the via ferrata. Climbing equipment can be rented on site.
Equipped with climbing harness and helmet, you make your way across the ropes course, suspended a few metres above the safety of terra firma, on swinging ropes and loose steps. Fun is guaranteed at the ten stations, but balance and skill are required! The starting point is just a 5-minute walk up from the mountain station. And if you’ve still not had enough thrills, you can experience lift-off on the Flying Fox zip-line right next door!
At the Crystal Mine on the Spieljoch massif, children can see for themselves at touching distance how stones and crystals are extracted. During the one-hour mine walk, children themselves can try to find mountain crystals in the rock crystal pools, wash them and fill their leather bag with the crystals. The three most beautiful crystals are then processed and can be taken home as a souvenir.
The Öxeltal Tourist Mine is some 45 minutes from the Spieljoch mountain station. During the journey into the mountain, the qualified mining guide tells you all about the mine’s 400-year-old history. A unique experience for the whole family - and the perfect destination for hot days!
You balance intrepidly at a dizzying height on the Nepalese bridge safely secured with a harness to a tightrope suspended across the "Kaunzbucht" - right next to the Spieljoch mountain station. Despite the best equipment and all due safety precautions, the balancing act still requires calm, skill and above all courage! A pure adrenaline rush for everyone, with the added thrill of magnificent panoramic views.
