My 14 yr old daughter and I did this. It was a fun adventure. We pd for a 1 time ride. Felt it was pricey for 1 ride but still fun none the less.

Such a unique attraction and so much fun! My husband and six-year-old and I all loved it. And since it's basically a slide down an entire ski slope, you can pick up some pretty good speed--it's a great ride! But after the first trip down, we got cocky and decided to go faster (you can control your speed on the... More

An interesting piece of entertainment that can be both scary and thrilling. My sister was extremely hesitant about riding the Crystal Coaster but she tried. Her first ride took perhaps 5 minutes, but after that, speed was her demon. Ride is interesting and exciting and should be experienced by all visitors to Crystal.

My 5 yr old son and I somehow flipped the sled coming down.. he has 5 friction burns on his face, and one on his elbow. I was several burns on the elbow, knee, and opposite wrist (trying to protect... More

With Gr-kids aged 8 to 16 (plus adults ) this was fun for everyone. Not only the slide but they had a rock wall to climb & a zip line. All the kids had fun, even us adults on the alpine slide !

For both kids AND adults, this unique Alpine Slide is great fun for the whole family. The slide is built and designed with safety in mind as well. We rode it multiple numbers of times throughout the day.

We came here on 8/12/15 with kids ages 10 and 7 years old. Our family enjoyed lift rides going uphill and doing the coaster downhill. The line was not too crazy. Would recommend unlimited band. We were able to ride 5 rides within 1 hr.

Well, it looks like fun, but I didn't find it that interesting, as a middle-aged man. I'm sure the kids love it.

This place is so much fun. We came just for the day as a family. My husband, myself and two daughters, age 11&14. We bought a bracelet for the girls that let them do the rock wall, high ropes course, swimming at a large pool as well as laser tag. They could also have unlimited rides on the crystal coaster....

For my 7 yr old, these 2 mins were her favorite part of the vacation. For me, I was a little disappointed. It was slower than I expected, which was probably good for my 7 yr old. Tickets are $8 per ride. My daughter rode with me, my son with my husband, so we only had to pay for two... More
