What is an Alpine Coaster?

Beginning in 1996, alpine coasters first began in Austria as a way for tourists to experience the scenery in an exciting new way. Since then, these coasters have evolved from a wooden rickety structure to a sleek, smooth ride such as our very own Blue Ridge Mountain Coaster. 

Unlike traditional roller coasters, alpine coasters have manual brakes that allow riders to control their speed, which means that riders have the ability to choose their own adventure. If you want to learn more and experience this for yourself, then be sure to make your way to our mountain coaster in North Carolina!
