The Mountain Coaster In Colorado That Will Take You On A Ride Of A Lifetime

In December, we brought you This Winter Coaster In Colorado Will Take You On The Ride Of A Lifetime, which featured Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park’s thrilling Alpine Coaster… but did you know that this Glenwood Springs icon is not the only mountain coaster in Colorado? Take, for instance, this equally epic mountain coaster hiding inside one of the state’s most popular ski towns:

Located within Breckenridge’s Peak 8 Fun Park, the Gold Run Coaster is a 2,500-foot-long alpine coaster that travels through some of the area’s best scenery. Opened year round, Gold Run Coaster is a true experience for the entire family that allows even the smallest of guests (who are at least 3 years old and 38″ tall) to feel the wind in their hair! Whether you are in Breckenridge strictly for the Fun Park or are taking a quick break from the slopes, you are guaranteed to love going at your own pace around this unforgettable track.

Ready to take a ride? Watch this:

Peak 8 Fun Park is located within the Breckenridge Ski Resort and is open during the winter from 11 am to 4 pm and during the summer from 9:30 am to 5 pm. For more information on both Peak 8 and the Gold Runner Alpine Coaster, please visit the Vail Resorts Management Company’s website.
