Thanks for the great review. The Ridge Runner does run on Fridays, but if it was during a rain storm or if there is thunder we must close for 30 minutes for safety. If there is a dodgy forecast it is always recommend to check...More

My 3 old son enjoyed it the most, going full speed the whole way. Really worth doing it once at least.

Sounds like your son is a bit of a dare devil, it is wonderful to read that he enjoyed the "need for speed" that the Ridge Runner offers. We hope you'll be back again soon for another ride.

This is one of the best attractions on Blue Mountain Resort. You can control the speed of the coaster but the faster, the more fun it is. Best time to ride was after sunset!! A really different experience than daytime. Whenever I’d find the queue...More

Thanks for this amazing review of the Ridge Runner. It sure has become a favourite among our guests. If you liked it at night - you should try it in the snow. Its a completely new and fun experience.

We loved it. Kids loved it. Only complaint was the wait but to be expected. A good casual ride with some speed and turns but nothing scary. Good for all ages

Thank you so much for this amazing review. We couldn't agree more with you - this isn't your typical Roller Coaster. We'd love to have you back for another ride in the winter, is a new and exhilarating experience.

No. You have to pay each time. If you want to spend a few hours there, go on the tall ropes. It's a three hour package and well worth it.
