This Mountain Coaster In Colorado Will Take You On A Memorable Ride
Are you sick and tired of the roller coasters at Elitches and Lakeside? Sure, they are great the first few times, but you have reached the point where you need something new and exciting, right? Don’t despair; just make a trip to the epic Glenwood Caverns to experience the Alpine Coaster, an epic mountain coaster in Colorado.
Advertised as being the first alpine coaster in the country, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park's Alpine Coaster is quite possibly one of the most unique thrill rides in the state!
Located within the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, the Alpine Coaster is the first of its kind.
This mountain coaster in Colorado allows thrill-seekers to choose their speed, ride alone (or with a friend), and experience the fun of an alpine slide without, you know, the fear of flying off.
Named one of the 10 Best Roller-Coaster Rides of Your Life by USA TODAY’s 10 Best, this year-round mountain coaster in Colorado is not for the faint of heart.
It not only offers a wild ride with a steep 3,400 foot descent, but also the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the scenic view whilst coasting along the rails.
Does the thought of flying down a hill at potentially high speeds make you nervous?
The coaster's description should reassure you: "Unlike typical alpine slides, you can’t fall out of the Alpine Coaster. The Coaster is affixed to its track, can make hairpin turns, and it can operate year-round due to its track system." (We feel better.)
To ride these rails, Glenwood Caverns requires you must be at least 3 years old and 38" tall (if riding with an adult).
A waiver must also be signed by someone over the age of 18.
When it comes to unforgettable mountain coasters in Colorado, the Alpine Coaster will surely top the list.
Put this only-in-Colorado on your bucket list!
