"We're looking forward to our upcoming visit to Burning Rock for their Thrills in the Hills event in June”, said Fisher.  “It’s a great place to get together and ride with our friends/fans of the show”.

The 3rd Annual Thrills in the Hills event has undergone a transformation for 2012.  Hosted for the first time by the Mountaineer Trail Riders of West Virginia, it will be three days of adrenaline packed off-road fun, activities, music, food and camaraderie.  It’s off road trail riding in beautiful West Virginia plus so much more… Guided Tours, Zip Line rides, Challenge at the Rock obstacle course races, Pro Armor’s Xtreme Mountain Challenge, Moonshine Run, Radio Control Off Road Track & Races, Mud Pit Competition, Mud Run, Fireworks, Blackwater Outlaws Concert, Vendors and more.

“Spectators are going to love it”, said Rob Atha, President of Mountaineer Trail Riders, the organizer of the event.  “We designed the obstacle course, hill climb and mud bog to be centrally located for prime viewing”, he continued.   “Everyone will be able to see and enjoy all of the action.”
Facilities at Burning Rock Outdoor Adventure Park include numerous camping sites, RV hookups, rental cabins, showers/restrooms and more.  Weekend packages including lodging are available. 
In addition, with gasoline prices rumored to be near $5 per gallon this summer, admission fees have been lowered. 
“With fuel costs where they are, and rumors of even higher costs in the  future, we decided off-road riders are especially going to feel a pinch in their wallets this summer”, said Lisa Gale, Burning Rock’s Director of Marketing.  “So, we decided to lower our event admission fee so families can still afford to come and play for the weekend”, she continued. 
This event is open to the public. 
Weekend (Friday-Sunday) admission is $40 per adult / $25 kids (10 yrs & under). 
Saturday Concert/Fireworks only (gate opens 7pm) admission is $20 per adult / $10 kids (10 yrs & under).  Sunday only admission is $10 per adult & $5 kids (10 yrs & younger).
