Description

from Rowdy Bear Mountain Adventure Park
Rowdy Bear Mountain Adventure Park is home to two amazing thrill rides including the First Mountain Glider in the world. The Glider is a suspended single rail coaster that safely soars through the treetops of Rowdy Bear Mountain. This amazing adventure combines free falling and hang gliding into a safe fun experience.

This is the newest of the various alpine mountain coasters in the area. The ride duration of this one is much shorter than the others if you take out tge extra long time from where you are to stop and then wait to be conveyed to the exit point. Others in the area offer a more thrilling ride.

The rides were loads of fun. The staff noticed my Retired Navy hat and gave us a Military discount. We rode the coaster ride then took advantage of the $8 repeat ride. The staff was AWESOME (Bryan/Johnny/Marie/Isiah/Christian). They were extremely patient and truly made us feel welcome. Our little guy then wanted so desperately to ride the Glider but was too small by just an inch. So, they let us all ride the coaster again. We'll be back again next year!!

I'd never ridden before (fear of heights). This was awesome! Not too high and liked that I could control the speed, but opened it up full speed! Loved it! And the staff was very friendly and informative.

Not only were the rides loads of fun, the staff made us feel welcome and was very patient with us. I felt it was reasonably priced as well. They were even willing to take some pictures with our camera even though they sell photos and videos.
