Full review

We traveled to Vermont with another family for February vacation to visit Pico Mountain. We have six younger kids, so the draw for us was the promotion of KIds Planet. We researched Kids Planet on the internet and also called to confirm that we understood the arrangement. When we arrived there, we were literally stopped in our tracks. The bunny hill is in an area completely seperate from Kids Planet, which prevents one parent from supervising two children at the same time. The "Tubing" advertised on the website is a run approximately 10 feet (that's right - "FEET") long with an incline of about 2 feet. There is also a tube carosel that pulls 4 tubes in a circle. The carosel is appropriate for 3yr old and younger. Picture a rag-tag, small suburban kids play area in the summer, then picture it with snow all over it and surrounded by cheap construction fence, and you've got Kids Planet. Pico should classify this offering as 3yr and under as opposed to 8 yr and under. We demanded money back for the tickets that we had purchased for all 6 kids and the two adult lift tickets we had purchases and left the park. PIco ruined our entire vacation. They intentionally misprepresent Kids Planet on their web site and offer a simple "sorry - we'll refund your money" when confronted. We will never return. STAY AWAY FROM PICO!!!
