How fast does the coaster go?
The maximum speed is 25 MPH.

Can I control my own speed?
Yes, each sled has hand brakes which you push forward to move. If you let go or pull back the cart will stop.

How long does it take?
The ride up is 5.5 minutes up, and lasts about 7-9 minutes in total including both ascent and descent.

Who can ride the coaster?
The mountain coaster is for anyone at least 54″ tall to drive and no taller than 84″, or at least 38″ tall to ride with a driver. The maximum weight for both passenger is 375 pounds. You must have use of both arms and be able to operate the hand brake. It doesn’t require any special skill.

Does the ride go upside down?
No the circles bank a little for some exciting G-forces, but there are no loops that suspend riders upside down.

Can the cart leave the track like the alpine slide?
No the carts are firmly secured to the track, and you’re secured in the cart with a safety belt.

What is it like to ride the Cowboy Coaster?
Exhilarating! The Mountain Coaster winds and loops its way through the forest of Snow King Mountain with views of the Tetons, the valley and the town of Jackson. You can go as fast as 25 MPH or take a more leisurely spin down the mountain by controlling the hand brake.

How does it work?
Riders load the coaster at the base area platform. Carts similar to the Alpine Slide carts can hold a driver and a passenger, or just a driver. Carts are carried along the track to the top of the ride by a cable and then descend the hill pulled down the hill by gravity.

The track gets as high as 43 feet off the ground, carries riders 456 vertical feet up Snow King Mountain and downhill on 3,295 feet of track (just a bit less than 1 mile), with 4 circles and 6 bridges.
