Sunrise Apache Alpine Coaster | Opens May 2024

Next summer families can experience the Sunrise Apache Alpine Coaster, with over 3,287 feet of track and breathtaking mountain views according to the resort. This high-tech coaster is engineered by Wiegand, the world-wide leader in mountain coasters. It features individual carts where riders control their own speed with a hand brake as they fly down the mountain. Young children can also ride with a parent. Each cart has a top speed of 25mph and the carts automatically maintain a safe distance between each other. The coaster will be available to ride in both the summer and winter seasons.
