This Winter Coaster In Colorado Will Take You On The Ride Of A Lifetime

It’s just about winter, which means that getting your thrill fix will have to wait until after the first thaw… or does it? Elitches, Lakeside, and the other big theme parks maybe closed for the year, but this one epic coaster (and amusement park!) is just getting warmed up…

Located within the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, the Alpine Coaster is the first of its kind that allows thrill-seekers to choose their speed, ride alone (or with a friend), and experience the fun of an alpine slide without the fear of flying off. Named one of the 10 Best Roller-coaster Rides of Your Life by USA TODAY’s 10Best, this year round coaster not only offers a wild ride with a steep 3,400 foot descent, but the opportunity to also sit back and enjoy the scenic view whilst coasting along the rails.

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 10 am to 8 pm. For more information about other rides, ticket prices, and more, please visit their website.
