Alpine Coaster - Overpriced!

For such a short ride, $14.00 is ridiculous. The price should be closer to $5.00. Although the... read more

Mountain coaster was so much fun. Must do it twice. First time down was a practice run, second time wide open.

For such a short ride, $14.00 is ridiculous. The price should be closer to $5.00. Although the ride is smooth and fun, it's ultimately not worth it.

My family had a good time riding the mountain coaster although it is a bit pricey for such a short ride. It would have been a better value if we purchased the 3 ride package but we had fun with our one ride regardless. My...More

We arrived at the end of the day and had time for a coaster ride and my teens did the ropes course. It was an enjoyable outing for everyone.

My sons and their two cousins had fun on the mountain roller coaster, but they spent far more time in line than they did actually riding. One round trip costs $14, three round trips is $29. Including the uphill ride, the whole thing could not...More

My whole family--50-ish adults and teens of 13 and 15--loved the mountain coaster. It says something that it was raining at the time, and no one remembers that; they just remember having fun.

I don't think so. It's right next to the lake, but the only "beach" area at the lake is in the state park, which is a couple of miles away. I did not see a swimming pool.

Sounds like you're looking to stay at the hotel. I would check directly with them. However, there is also the option of renting a condo or house through Railey Mountain Lake Vacations, which I would recommend exploring
