  • Definitely fun. My wife and I went here and rode this, and I would definitely recommend it. First part is fairly relaxing, nice, slower ride up the mountain; the second part is definitely faster. If you have issues with speed or fast turns, then this might not be the thing for you. But if you enjoy those things then I definitely suggest it. I also suggest doing this at night. During the day is nice, but at night is great. And if you go once, then you get a discount for the next time, almost half off.
  • If you're looking for the best Alpine coaster, look no further. My wife and I visited here and were shocked at how awesome the ride was. Short line, very fair price and they even gave the option to come back for a discounted ride ... I think 50% of the original ticket cost. The ride up took a few minutes, the way down seemed like 5+ minutes. A ton of fun! Highly recommend!
