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.

This was our third visit to Rowdy Bear Mountain Coaster and again, it was a fun experience. We've ridden the coaster at night and this was the first time to ride during the day. It was as much fun or more fun than a nighttime ride. We visited after buying a Groupon, which made the value even better.

The place is, or appears to be, brand new and very clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Free parking was nice too! The parent/kid ride was about 3-4 minutes long and our 8 year old LOVED IT!

Took my entire family here today and had a blast. The coaster was great for small children. Glider was the star of the show. Kids loved it. Seems much safer than ziplining. Ally, mate, Mark, david, kristie, Marie, jelana all were awesome. Can't wait to go back.
