Camp Jeep 

The Jeep® brand is returning with Camp Jeep®, a unique, interactive, off-road experience, where professional 4×4 drivers allow riders to experience the on and off-road capabilities of Jeep brand vehicles. The 40,000-square foot course is comprised of several obstacles, including a thrilling “can’t miss” hill climb where passengers experience traction capabilities while climbing the 18-foot high, 35 degree Jeep Mountain, the icon of the ride. New for 2017 guests, will experience a Ground Clearance Stair Climb, the Maneuverability Moguls and the Extreme Breakover where Jeeps navigate on a 25 degree uneven plane until one wheel loses contact with the surface, the vehicle continues to climb until it hits the apex guests will get a surge of excitement as the vehicle breaks over the plane. In addition to the Camp Jeep Ride, guests will get to traverse a climbing wall, experience interactive gaming and kids can test drive Jeeps on the mini-Jeep kids course.
