My son had so much, fun feeding the goats on the roof.
We both road the coasters, it was really fast and fun.
And the gift shop, where we purchase the food to feed the goats had alot of fun snacks to take home.
Thanks Ryan, for helping us with purchasing tickets to ride the coatster.

Tip: You can control the speed at which you travel but it is shorter than others and will be over before you know it. You will want to do another and another ride.

"Fun but doesn't last long"
July 2018
This was alot of fun! The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because it felt like it was over so fast. You can control the speed of your cart by the handles which is a good thing if you don't want to go super fast. I'd do it again but for 6 of us the price was kinda steep for the experience .

"Awesome view!"
June 2018
This coaster was a mile long with fantastic views. Love that you can control your speed as you ride so you can enjoy the view as well as the fun of the ride. The shop was interesting and the goats a quirky addition-but fun. Staff were not very friendly however so I was compelled to ride a second time.
