Mountain Coaster in Winter

Mountain Coaster

The Mountain Coaster is a roller coaster set on the mountainside at Gunstock. Riders begin and end by the LRDS building in a two-person cart on twin, stainless steel rails. The coaster takes riders uphill through the forest before the cart disengages, and gravity takes over. The downhill track is designed with swooping turns, banked corners, rolling drops and 360° turns. Each cart is equipped with its own braking system, allowing riders to slow speeds to a comfortable pace or accelerate to G-Force inducing levels.
