Ridge Runner at Blue Mountain Resort
For thrill seekers visiting Blue Mountain Resort in Collingwood, Ridge Runner is a must-try attraction! Ridge Runner is Ontario's first and only mountain coaster that takes riders on an exhilarating coaster experience down the mountain.
Those riding Ridge Runner will race along a 1,085 metres (3,560 feet) track, through turns, dips, and twists alongside the ski runs and through the forest in individual coaster cars. Riders can travel alone, though parents must ride with a child under the age of 13.
Drivers have complete control of their speeds (up to 42 km/h or 26 mph) for a truly unique, hands-on experience. Feel the excitement of the ride as your coaster runs smoothly and silently down the mountain. Those who want to 'fly' down will love the hairpin turns, and feel slightly ‘airborne’ at times since you are elevated 3-6 metres (10-20 feet) off the ground. Those less daring can enjoy a leisurely ride down. And, unlike a roller coaster, there are no sudden drops. This ride spells FUN!
Ridge Runner is a unique attraction that operates year-round due to its distinctive track system (that means Wintertime too!). For more information, visit www.bluemountain.ca.
It's a really cool downhill adventure...
