Mountain Adventures

At Wisp

Mountain Coaster

The Mountain Coaster at Wisp Resort is a gravitational hybrid of an Alpine Slide and a Roller Coaster boasting a 1,300-foot uphill track while twisting, turning, dipping and rolling for 3,500 feet downhill over 350 vertical feet on the eastern side of Wisp Mountain. Guests ride in ‘coaster carts,’ and regulate their own speed with a set of handbrakes on the side of each cart. A centrifugal braking system restricts the coaster cart’s downhill speed at approximately 28 mph.


Once aboard the coaster cart, a motorized pulley carries the cart uphill while the rider relaxes and takes in views of Deep Creek Lake and Garrett County below.  As the cart crests the track and the rider releases the automatic-brakes, gravity pulls the cart into the first turn among the woods of Wisp Mountain.  The rider has enough time to catch their breath and prepare for the first turn that is just inside the tree line of Chairlift #1.  Skiers, snowboarders and summer chairlift riders will be entertained by coaster-goers on turn #2.  The grade percent increases and the third and final turn, just above Boulder Ski Trail, is the most thrilling turn and brings out smiles, laughs and screams from most riders.  After a few rollers on a straight-away, riders enter the first of two back-to-back corkscrews.  The Mountain Coaster track finishes with more rollers, dips and turns to bring the carts back to the loading area with riders grinning and laughing.


At the end of your Mountain Coaster ride is an automated camera to capture your coaster experience.  Be sure to stop by the photo booth after your ride to view your Mountain Coaster memory! Purchase photos inside the main Mountain Park building or online at

If you purchased a downloadable photo at, have your 16-character photo ID ready.
