Last week I had the opportunity to ride Park City Mountain Resort's Alpine Coaster for my first time. I've grown up going to amusement parks in Southern California and consider myself somewhat of a roller coaster aficionado. With the series of storms we've received at Park City, the snow has been building up huge burms alongside the coaster, making for a unique and picturesque ride. When asked to film the Alpine Coaster I was excited to indulge my inner thrill seeker and experience my first ever roller coaster on a mountain. I have to admit I was more nervous to film and ride the Alpine Coaster than anything else I've done this year!
As the toboggan climbed up the track I couldn't help but be blown away once again by how beautiful the scenery is here at Park City Mountain Resort. Just as I was reaching my zen moment, it was time to press the pedals to the metal and go whizzing down the track. Screaming and squealing the whole way down, I couldn't believe how exhilarating this ride was. Truth be told, I rode the Alpine Coaster three times that day and I can't wait to do it again.
