I guess you would call this ride an early predecessor to the current style Alpine Coasters although maybe not as thrilling.
The video was taken back in the 1970's or early 80's but I am trying to find out the year this ride opened and the year it closed.
If anybody has any additional information to share about this forgotten ride I'd love to know more!
You might say this is a cross between an Alpine Slide & Alpine Coaster although the resort called it a coaster.
Yeh, the cheesy 70's music came from one of our favorite movie soundtracks....LOL.
I was am still am a big Alpine Slide freak. Since Alpine Slides are starting to go extinct, I'm sure this one never had much of a chance. Never got to go one one of these but it looks like a lot of fun.
Any coasterbuzzers ever ride one of these? Can't seem to find any info about this at all. There was a similar one at the defunct Mount Whittier ski area in New Hampshire from and old bruchure picture in a book. So there was at least two of them in North America. The ride in swampfoxer's video looks fun and those drops are pretty damn steep. Would love to know more about this or to hear from anyone that has been on one.
