Reminiscent of Olympic bobsled tracks, the Alpine Coaster is an elevated track which whisks riders along well over a mile of track which loops through the beautifully mountainous Park City scenery at a heart-racing clip of 30 mph.
The Alpine Coaster twists and turns around bends and hairpin curves at speeds controlled by the rider. With breaks on each of the coaster’s cars, the rider can go as terrifyingly fast or as slow as they are comfortable with. Having control of the breaks means that the Alpine Coaster is perfect for all ages, though children under 54 inches tall, must be accompanied by an adult or responsible person over 54 inches in height.
The view from the track of the Alpine Coaster is like no other you will experience on any other ride. the 4,000 feet of track wind through the beautiful and breathtaking scenery of the mountains of Park City Mountain Resort.
