This Alpine Coaster Takes You Soaring High Above A Breathtaking Texas Lake
Ever since the Wyler Aerial Tramway closed for good, Texas hasn’t been the same. Something about ascending a mountain and enjoying breathtaking views at the summit makes a summer afternoon so special. Luckily, there’s another alpine coaster at Lake Buchanan, just 60 miles northwest of Austin. Take a ride and soar high above the pristine water as the sun shines brilliantly overhead.
