Mountain Coaster

The Mountain Coaster is essentially a roller coaster set on the mountainside. Riders begin and end by the LRDS building in two-person carts on twin, stainless steel rails. The coaster takes riders uphill through the forest before the cart disengages, and gravity takes over. The downhill track is designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own braking system, allowing you to slow speeds to a comfortable pace or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels.
