Wheeee! Alpine Coaster is Underway for Breckenridge Ski Resort

Posted by Breckenridge Associates Real Estate on Thursday, July 15th, 2010 at 10:55am.

An Alpine Coaster is planned for Breckenridge with construction already beginning this summer. It’s slated to operate in both the summer and winter seasons and will bring yet another element of fun and adventure to Breckenridge, the ski resort and community.

The thrill ride’s location on Peak 8 is set to be located above the Kids Castle. The ride will be approximately 2,500 feet long. Unlike the Alpine Slide (also located on Peak 8) the coaster’s cars run on a track rather than a trough and will be propelled to the beginning of the launch point, similar to a roller coaster. Participants will be strapped into the individual cars and able to control the speed of the decent. cars are fixed to the rails, therefore riders won’t be able to jump the track if they are more aggressive heading downhill.

A similar coaster exists at Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs.

Bring on the fun! We can’t wait to test it out!
