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.

I purchased combo tickets for the coaster and glider (one ride each). When we went to redeem the tickets, we were told they were running an in-house special, so we were upgraded which gave us an additional ride on the coaster. This coaster is the fastest one I have ridden, and and was really enjoyable. The glider is so unique, and thrilling. It does swing you around a little, but if you follow directions it is a fun ride!! My only complaint is that it wasn't longer. The staff was very friendly and I can't wait to wear my t-shirt "Stay Rowdy My Friends!!

We purchased the unlimited hour band for my husband and two kids ages 15 and 11. Both kids rode by themselves and were not scared at Sally’s. When we went it was not busy so we rode 8-9 times. Pretty stinking cool the heavier your cart (more weight) the faster it goes. We also did the zip coaster. Pretty neat too but a lot for such a short ride if u ask me.

We purchased the 1 hour unlimited ride wristband. They were not busy at all when we went, so we got to ride the coaster 7 times in that hour!
