Want to feel the wind in your hair and the rush of adrenaline? There is an unbelievable mountain coaster in B.C. that will have you flying down the track at speeds up to 42 kilometres per hour. This us the most unique way to experience the forested beauty of our province and it's way more fun than a zip line.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort offers so much more than just skiing. Located about a six-hour drive from Vancouver, it is a fantastic weekend getaway at any time of year.
In the warmer months, there is a treasure trove of activities to discover. Some top picks are the aerial adventure park, hiking, and the Pipe Mountain Coaster.
Summer's top attraction is the unique coaster ride down the slope and you need to add it to your bucket list. This year it reopens on Friday, May 15, 2020.*
Even if the thought of roller coasters fills you with fear, you can still enjoy this experience. Each person is in full control of their speed so it's perfect for thrill-seekers and scaredy cats.
That means you can either slowly cruise down and admire the scenery or go at top speeds.
Adventure-seekers will adore how the track is filled with twists and turns along with a few steep drops. There is even a dark tunnel to pass.
The entire adventure is 1.4-kilometres long and will provide some extraordinary views.
Heading down, you'll see stunning glades as you make your way to the finish line in the Resort Village.
One ride is just $27 a person and includes free access to the Lower Revelation Gondola.
But, there is no way you are going to want to do it just once; it is just too much fun.
This summer, they'll bring in a "Play All Day Pass" that gives you two rides on the coaster, gets you inside the new Aerial Adventure Park and more.
Once you learn how the ride works, chances are you are going to want to go again to shave some time off your record.
For an extra challenge, why not see if you can go faster than your friends and the loser buys drinks?
