“Great Coaster, Horrid Wait Times”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We've been on 3 alpine coasters - Park City, Breckenridge and Glenwood Springs. PC is by far the best overall alpine coaster. Long rides, great turns and views. However, PC has the longest overall wait times and it wasn't that crowded. We think this mostly has to do with the number of cars on the track and the fact that some people slow down. We bought a day pass and only went on the ride 4 times in a WHOLE DAY. 2 hours to wait for a 5 minute ride. The other coasters we have ridden have a much faster turnover rate. You could ride them easily 10-16x a day. If you go, ride the coaster. if there are a lot of people, consider whether a day pass is worth it - or just one or two trips for $20 each...

“Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Had no idea what to expect, but this was a fun ride for all of us. With ages from 11 to 50, sometimes that is hard to do. Safe as well so Mom was happy!

“Special Thrills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Go as fast or slow as you want but a lot of fun. Speeds up to 40mph, everything except upside down. We went on a Wednesday and lines were very short. Went on the Coaster 8 times in a row with no wait.

Long lines on the weekend. While you're there think about an all-day pass and ride the ziplines and alpine slide. Plan on eating at the shack by the base of the coaster. Burgers were good and reasonably priced compared to your other options on premises.

“Will be talking about the ride for years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Great fun. A must do while in Park City. Only complaint would be the price for one trip down. You will definitely want to go down more than once.
