Going down a mountain on a Roller Coaster? Sign us up!

The Revelstoke Mountain Resort is opening up The Pipe Mountain Coaster this May and we are watching the online video in pure excitement.  At first my girls were a little apprehensive about the idea, but as soon as we read you can go with an adult and the rider controls the speed they’re now asking when we can go. I have one major little thrill seeker on my hands here and I know she’s not going to stop talking about it!

According to the website “the adventure begins right out of the starting gate; after buckling into the cart, you push forward to release the brakes. Ahead of you lies a steep drop that dives right into an ominous tunnel; from there, you descend 279 vertical metres (915 feet) over 1.4 kilometres (0.87 miles) of high-speed rail, twisting and turning across ski runs and through the forest all the way to the finish line in the Resort Village.

Not just for the adrenaline junkie, this family-friendly ride allows you to control your own speed – letting you choose between a relaxing cruise or a white-knuckled all-out track attack! The unique cart design allows you to ride individually or tandem with small children. Since you have 100% control over your excitement factor, it is great for all ages – just be warned you are going to want to ride it again and again.”

Ticket’s are $19 for adults and kids between 3-5 ride free with an adult.  There’s a 15% off discount for Older kids and seniors.  And if you buy your tickets online in advance you can save also 20%.

Is this thrill ride going to be on anyone else’s summer fun bucket list? Cause for sure it’s now on ours!
