Awesome Ride!

Lots of fun! Worth the $16. Carts seem to brake by themselves, but still fast enough. Never caught up to anyone while on the ride. Would probably go again, maybe in the winter.

Took 2 boys and myself for the Ridge Runner ride. Boys couldn't ride alone, the needed an adult. In order to take both boys on the ride, I had to pay an employee $13 to ride with one of them. That was unexpected and seemed quite ridiculous. There were plenty of employees standing around. That should be a service offered... More

My twelve yr son loved this ride and was ready to do it again. It's fun, not too pricey ($13 youth). The staff is nice and safety concious.

We rode the coaster multiple times on our stay. My eight year old son absolutely loved it and wanted to go faster. The staff are excellent and make sure safety is number one.

This is a thrill ride that you have control of your own speed. Ride takes you right through the scenic forest and hills of Blue Mountain. Friendly staff with clear and simple directions to make the ride safe and fun.

This is the second time on one of these. First ride was in Quebec at Saint Savour "Viking". This is a newer version so they have a neat feature of a brake light installed so if you catch up to someone you can see if the brakes are on as you can easily reach the 42km max speed. The track... More

Luckily, we went early, around 9:30AM on a Saturday morning, so the lineup was minimal. I guess my expectations were high after seeing all the rave reviews. Yes, it's a neat experience coasting down the blue mountain, however, the ride was way too short. I was disappointed that the downhill portion of the ride was at most, 3 minutes, when... More

I went on the ride a couple of times while up at Blue Mountain. You don't do any climbing up the hill at all as the sleds are pulled up to the top with you already aboard. The way down can be as fast as you want it since you control the speed with two levers. If you panic and... More

This is the best attraction on the mountain. You go up on the cart and then you go downhill extremely fast. The curves are insane. My kids and I loved this as we went several times.

Great fun. Would do it over and over again if they had a day pass. Well worth it! A self-controlled roller coaster
