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.
SMILE & SAY CHEESE!
