Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster

Visit the Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster near the Tannenbaum Lodge and get ready for a thrilling ride down through the snowy woods! The Mountain Coaster is similar to a roller coaster but it is low to the ground and follows the contours of the terrain. You ride alone or with a friend in a “car” attached to rails that pulls you up the hill, then it follows a zig zagging spiraling path down the mountain. You can control the speed of your car with levers on the sides of the car. Children must be at least 3 years old and over 38 inches tall (without shoes) to ride with an adult, or 8 years and 54 inches tall to ride alone. The driver of a 2 person car must be at least 16 years old. Riders must be able to perform certain physical tasks to participate.

The Coaster operates during the winter season from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM Friday through Sunday, plus holidays weather permitting. Tickets may be purchased at any ticket window or at lodging properties. Purchase your mountain coaster ticket with your lift ticket and save! The Coaster will operate from just before Christmas through mid-March, weather permitting. Summer Coaster operations schedule.
