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.

“Fun!”

Rush down a mountain on your own personal sled with wheels and have the time of your life! Each sled is equipped with a hand-brake for those that like to go a little bit slower, but for the more adventurous you can whisk down the slide at full speed - just watch out for those turns or you'll find yourself in the grass. This coaster is great for dates, families with pre-teen/teenage kids. A chair-lift brings you and your sled to the top.

“Great for all ages....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

On it's own this is a pricey ride for over $20....but getting it as part of a package, or a complete pass, things even out....and you will want to go more than once. Everyone loved it...from my 10 year old daughter, teen boys, and 40-something husband....and me. While it may look a bit intimidating to some, you are in complete control of the speed which is a good feeling. My kids went faster than I did. And...the staff is very friendly. On one ride when my kids were behind a very slow rider, they let my kids take another ride immediately. Of all the things we did in Park City...balloon ride, horse back riding, zip line, this one gets talked about the most.

“Super fun with the kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We had a great time....when else you gonna ride a long slide down a beautiful mountain, right? The kids had a blast! It was super packed out though, but I guess thats what you get on a hot, summer day.

“Fun and Fast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

The Alpine Coaster is a blast! You are buckled into a cart, given a quick lesson on how to slow down, and off you go. The ride itself is beautiful and quick. We waited over an hour for a ride that lasted roughly 5 minutes. The only possible downside is that the lines can be very long and there is no shade.

“Not Just For The Kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We go to Park City every summer for a business meeting, and the most fun thing we do every year here is to ride the coaster! Keep in mind that we are in our 50's, but we love the ride. Just remember to NOT break on the way down and to ask the attendant to give you some space from the cart in front of you so that they don't slow you down. Also, go with someone because the cart seems to go faster with more weight. Fun, fun, fun!
