The Mountain Coaster In Minnesota That Will Take You On A Ride Of A Lifetime
Here in Minnesota, we have plenty of ways to explore nature. Hiking, camping, and canoeing are all fun and popular, but what about when you crave something a little more exhilarating? If you’re looking for a wild ride through the trees with an unparalleled view of Duluth, head on up to the Timber Twister alpine coaster at Spirit Mountain.
Most people know Spirit Mountain for the ski and snowboard slopes it provides in winter months.
But Spirit Mountain has stuff to do when the snow melts, too. They offer mountain bike trails, camping, and the popular Adventure Park.
The Adventure Park contains zip lines and mini golf, but the Timber Twister may be the most popular attraction.
This alpine coaster zips through the forests of northern Minnesota, dodging branches and speeding around corners.
The track winds down the mountain over 3,200 feet. That's over half a mile of speeding through the trees!
Guests travel down the track in individual cars, though the carts can accommodate two people up to 375 pounds total.
As you speed down the mountain, you'll reach speeds of up to 26 miles per hour.
But if speed isn't your thing, the carts are equipped with brakes that allow you to control your speed. You'll be glad you did when you see the view.
At its highest points, Timber Twister offers truly breathtaking views of Duluth. You'll look out over the tops of trees to catch a glimpse of the St. Louis River sparkling below.
But even if you speed through the entire 3,200 feet, a ride on the Timber Twister alpine coaster is sure to be an exhilarating experience.
Spirit Mountain is located at 9500 Spirit Mountain Place in Duluth. The Alpine Twister is closed for repair as of March 2017, but it is set to be open by Memorial Day. Start planning your trip now! The rest of the park is officially operating on spring hours, which can be found
