Owner description: Thrill seekers, meet your match on Utah's largest Alpine Coaster. The elevated track winds you through more than a mile of loops, curves and hair-pin curves at speeds up to 30 mph. Just like your favorite roller coaster - but with the refreshing mountain scenery of Park City.

It is a little pricey for the time you are on it. If you drive slow it could last 2-3mins, if you dont brake at all it will last under a minute. But it is an experience. And is fun. If you want to go down fast, try and pick a time when no one is lining up for a minute or two, otherwise you wiil be stuck behind someone who will probably be very slow down the hill, causing you to have to slow down and not get a great ride.
The guys who run it down the bottom offer half price rides after you ride it once, so going again is worth it.

I haven't been. Why? Twice I have attempted and twice I have been stood up. Another reviewer mentioned the short hours, and this is no understatement. 12-4 are the posted hours, but these are highly subject to the slackers operating the ride. The first time I attemtped to catch a ride on the alpine coaster the ride was closed before 4. The second time I tried to catch the ride it was scheduled to be open, but it was already 1:30. I assume the ride is nice (if not overpriced), but be aware that the hours can be a little iffy.

The coaster was so much fun. It was probably one of our favorite activities from our trip to Park City, Utah. However, $40 for 2 people in one car for about a 2 minute ride is seriously over-priced. The hours for the ride are very short. It is only open until 4 pm. Good luck getting across the ski slope from the ticket booth to the ride. Be weary of snow boarders coming down the hill. Also, good luck finding the entrance to this place. It is not very well designated. Don't park at the first area you see by the hotel. Drive further in. You will want to park by the skating rink/entrance to the shopping area.
