"One Hour of crazy awesome fun!"
June 2019
Wow! Purchased the One Hour Wristband for my grandkids and their friends- and what a blast!! They enjoyed riding by themselves and with their friends. We all got 8 rides! The staff was so friendly and funny and made our experience even better. We can’t wait to go back! Next time we are going to ride the Glider as well.

This is the newest of the various alpine mountain coasters in the area. The ride duration of this one is much shorter than the others if you take out tge extra long time from where you are to stop and then wait to be conveyed to the exit point. Others in the area offer a more thrilling ride.

My friend and I rode the coaster. The coaster was really fun and I would do it again in a heartbeat. It felt like you were going really fast down the mountain in the coaster. The cost is better if you do the three rides for $24 instead of one ride for $16. They also have an umlimited rides for an hour for $30. They also had where you can come back the same day for$5 for another ride. Really nice place.

My sister, daughter and niece wanted to ride an alpine coaster and this was near our cabin. They rode at night and loved it! If we’d had more time ... and it was daylight ... I might have given it a try myself!

"OK coaster"

The coaster is very short and offers an average experience. This probably was my least favorite mountain coaster I have done. While the experience is pretty standard, the staff is not. They are incredibly friendly and helpful. They strive to ensure you have a great visit. At the time of our visit, they offered a variety of packages. This allowed us to ride the coaster multiple times for only a few dollars more than the regular single ride price. This was great and made the visit worthwhile. While we did not have time for the glider, it did look pretty cool and I wish we would have done this instead. Traffic is a bit tough coming out of the parking lot during busy times, pre-plan a route that allows you to turn right immediately out of the parking lot for an easier drive.
