Colorado Alpine Roller Coaster Rocky Mountains

Colorado is about to get a brand-new, exhilarating alpine roller coaster in May 2021. 

Around Memorial Day Weekend, the Mustang Mountain Coaster (MMC) will open to visitors for the first time to zip through the forest with unparalleled views of the Rocky Mountains.  

Visitors will be pulled up the mountain in their cart to the summit of the coaster at a whopping 8,200 feet.*

Once at the top, riders will be sent plummeting down 3,000 feet of tracks through the Colorado mountains. 

The alpine ride can reach up to 27 miles per hour as you fly down the rails, but you'll be controlling the speed.

A spokesperson for MMC shared with Narcity that the ride is Colorado's only mountain coaster on the Front Range section of the Rocky Mountains. 

Located in Estes Park, the coaster is a convenient drive from both Boulder and Denver. 

Tickets for the ride start at $20 for a single trip down the mountain. Guests can also get a 3-ride pass for $35 or an all-day pass for $65.
