My husband and I planned a once-in-a-blue-moon overnight getaway to Park City. I'd had my eye on the Alpine Coaster (as well as the ZipRider and the Alpine Slide), but paying for our family of 6 to do that just wasn't in the budget this time. I wanted to go play like kids, just the two of us.
We made the mistake of going on what had to be among the busiest weekends (Pioneer Day weekend--24th of July), So we waited in some really long lines, but it was so much fun. I do wish the price was more reasonable. We did the Triple Play (Alpine Slide, Coaster, and Zip Rider one time each for $45). I'd do it again, though, being sure to avoid a busy holiday weekend.
The coaster is totally safe (unlike the Alpine Slide where you can fall off). You hop in the coaster and take a slow, scenic ride up the track for several minutes through the wooded hills before the ride actually begins. You're bucked in and have the ability to use a hand brake if you want to slow it down. I'm not normally one who enjoys rollercoasters, but the most intense this gets is some fast, tight turns. It's exhilerating and fun. I felt like a kid again.
You can ride this alone, with a younger child, or with your hunnybunny if you want to snuggle (I don't recommend it).
