The Alpine Coaster...

We headed over to the Alpine Coaster on Wednesday for a little fun.  Actually, it was a lot of fun.  I am not a huge roller coaster fan when we go to theme parks (truth be told, I am not a huge theme park fan but that's another post) but this was different and really fun.  First of all, the view is MUCH better.  Here I am going up the hill.


This is the view from one side.  Not too shabby, is it?  Once you get to the top of the mountain you start coming back down.  The really cool thing is that you can adjust your speed going down.  Perfect for someone like me who doesn't feel the need for speed.  I was in my own little world when I noticed the guy behind me catching up to me so I had to speed up a bit.  Quite a bit.  And it was really fun!


I mentioned I had taken a few photos on the way up and LM said, "Mom, you're not supposed to use your cameras while you're on the ride."  Oops!



Here we are, all done with our ride.  The fun thing about the Alpine Coaster is that it's also open in the summer.  We can't wait to do it again!

Very cool! I'm with you, I also do not feel the need for speed. I'm much more of a green run, check out the scenery kind of skier :0)
