Riding the Rush: The Mountain Coaster at Greek Peak

Hello, thrill-seekers and mountain coaster aficionados! It’s Mountain Mike here, bringing you another high-octane adventure from the heart of the Fingerlakes—Greek Peak Mountain Resort. If you’re looking for a ride that combines the beauty of a mountain landscape with the excitement of a roller coaster, buckle up because the Mountain Coaster is all that and more!

The Experience

The Mountain Coaster is an alpine coaster that lets you control the action. That’s right, you’re the pilot of your own coaster cart! This isn’t just any sit-back-and-hold-on experience. You have the power to control your speed as you glide down the mountain, navigating twists and turns amidst the breathtaking scenery of Greek Peak.

Setting the Scene

So, strap on your boots (or skis, or bike helmet), and let’s dive into a world where every day is an opportunity to make unforgettable memories. Are you ready? Because I sure am – let the adventures begin!

The Thrill Factor

Once you reach the summit, it’s time to take control. Whether you’re a speed demon or a scenery savant, you can adjust your pace with a simple lever. Want to feel the wind whip through your hair as you zoom down at speeds that can reach up to 32 miles per hour? Go for it! Prefer a little less adrenaline? That’s just as fine!  You set the pace.

Safety First

Don’t let the speed scare you off—safety is a top priority on the Mountain Coaster. Each cart is designed to keep you secure and comfortable, regardless of the pace you choose. Plus, the staff at Greek Peak are always on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly from start to finish.
