It is my first time riding the Ridge Runner, at first I was nervous coz it take you up the mountain slowly, all the excitement, the thrills and the tension is building up and you see going up its getting stiff and everything down is going so small. its really high up, but the moment you maneuver the cart it was really thrilling, exciting and really fun. I will do it again.

Thank you for this great review. The Ridge Runner is a favourite amoung our guests. It can be a very thrilling - need for speed - type of ride, or you can use as much brake as you need to feel comfortable. We are so glad you had such a great time.

Really enjoyed this ride! Well run! My girl is afraid of ALL rides but the fact you can control the speed got her to try it and she enjoyed it ... 5he operator at the top held me back for a bit while she got ahead so both of us could enjoy the ride. Very professional!!

We went on this ride over the Thanksgiving weekend! Was so much fun! Our party from 60-10 all loved it. Thrilling but not heart stopping and didn't jerk you around at all.

Side note: this ride does not run in the rain or Friday g so check the forecast before you set out

Thanks for the great review. The Ridge Runner does run on Fridays, but if it was during a rain storm or if there is thunder we must close for 30 minutes for safety. If there is a dodgy forecast it is always recommend to check our Mountain Report page as it has the most up to date status on all of our activities, attractions and operation hours.

We are glad you and your family had such a great time on the coaster and hope to see you again soon

So we were a bit nervous about riding the coaster but so glad we did. It was great fun with the right amount of scary. We were surprised by how high up the mountain it goes. Very scenic on the way up as well as down. The coaster was comfortable and easy to operate. Thrilling but I felt safe.

Becky - We are so happy to hear you had a great time on the coaster. It has become a must do on resort. It can be as thrilling and fast as you feel comfortable with. You truly get to enjoy all aspects of the resort with it - take in the views on the way up and get that "need for speed" thrill on the way down!

My 3 old son enjoyed it the most, going full speed the whole way. Really worth doing it once at least.

Sounds like your son is a bit of a dare devil, it is wonderful to read that he enjoyed the "need for speed" that the Ridge Runner offers. We hope you'll be back again soon for another ride.

I did the ridge runner with my daughter and it was amazing! Would definitely recommend. Just wear gloves as it is quite a long ride and if the weather is in the -20s u need them!

Thanks for this awesome review! We love to hear that you and your daughter had such a great time on the Ridge Runner. We always recommend gloves in the winter, whether or not you're on the Ridge Runner. We hope you'll be back and try a lap in the summer - it is completely different experience.

This is one of the best attractions on Blue Mountain Resort. You can control the speed of the coaster but the faster, the more fun it is. Best time to ride was after sunset!! A really different experience than daytime. Whenever I’d find the queue short, I’d hop on for another ride!

Thanks for this amazing review of the Ridge Runner. It sure has become a favourite among our guests. If you liked it at night - you should try it in the snow. Its a completely new and fun experience.

We loved it. Kids loved it. Only complaint was the wait but to be expected.

A good casual ride with some speed and turns but nothing scary. Good for all ages

I'm afraid of riding roller coasters, but this one is diffrent, it runs inside the woods, the views were amazing, you control the speed you go, it breaks well around the corners
Driver should be 13 and older, younger kids can accompany them on the same wagon

Thank you so much for this amazing review. We couldn't agree more with you - this isn't your typical Roller Coaster. We'd love to have you back for another ride in the winter, is a new and exhilarating experience.
