Attraction Details
Owner description: E il parco dei divertimenti in cima al Mottarone, un luogo da cui lo sguardo si perde verso le Alpi, i laghi e le terre lombarde. Li sulla vetta della "montagna dei novaresi" potrete provare la frizzante esperienza dell'Alpine Coaster, una pista di bob su rotaia utilizzabile sia in estate che in inverno. Un divertimento per tutti e per tutte le eta.L'Alpine Coaster e un'attrazione simile alle montagne russe, tutta in discesa, con la particolarita che ogni utente puo decidere la velocita alla quale affrontare il tracciato. I bob a due posti sono infatti dotati di un sistema frenante che il passeggero posto sul sedile posteriore puo azionare per accelerare o decelerare. La pista e lunga 1.200 m e si sviluppa su un dislivello di 100m.

“Very disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We got all the way to the top of this attraction, which took 20 minutes, only to find it was out of order! The gondola on the way back down, then kept breaking down, and it took 50 minutes to get back to ground level. With 2 young children (in tears by the end of it), this was not a 'fun'icular ride at all!

“More ride than land”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Loved the coaster at Alpyland, but didn't seem like there was much to do other than that. Great views, wonderful experience, but don't go expecting mountaintop Disneyland. We hiked all the way down to the mid point on the cable car after Alpyland, and really enjoyed that despite the rock strewn path.
