Per previous riders.....our group of two didn't brake until end. My daughter screamed the whole way down, more excited than scared. Anyone who can tolerate heights and speed will create a life memory.

Thank you so much for sharing! We're so happy you and your daughter enjoyed the Ski Mountain Coaster. For those who wish to take a more relaxing ride, you can use your hand brakes anytime but we feel the need for speed as well, though!

We're happy you had fun on the Ski Mountain Coaster! If you go all out on the coaster you can reach speeds up to 25 mph but you can engage the handbrakes at any given time for a more relaxed pace.
