Had so much fun! We have 2 little ones under 10 so they rode with Mom and Dad! Super fun, can get up some good speed! Nice and relaxing being transported up the mountain. Would recommend this activity to visitors. I think the pricing is: Adults - $16 Children - $13 Enjoy the ride!

Definitely the highlight of Blue Mountain. I did it three or four times on our three day stay, I would recommend holding down the handles all the way down to go full speed.

The ridge runner was as close as I've gotten to a roller coaster in several years. There was a good explanatory video and multiple staff checked to make sure we understood and were comfortable with the controls. You go up the mountain in individual carts, strapped in with a strap similar to a seatbelt in a car. The ride up... More

I remember the concrete slide ride they had years ago that I had heard a lot about but never had the chance to ride. Well I finally got a chance to ride the New Improved , rails style version , It is a Blast!

Lots of fun! Worth the $16. Carts seem to brake by themselves, but still fast enough. Never caught up to anyone while on the ride. Would probably go again, maybe in the winter.

Took 2 boys and myself for the Ridge Runner ride. Boys couldn't ride alone, the needed an adult. In order to take both boys on the ride, I had to pay an employee $13 to ride with one of them. That was unexpected and seemed quite ridiculous. There were plenty of employees standing around. That should be a service offered... More

My twelve yr son loved this ride and was ready to do it again. It's fun, not too pricey ($13 youth). The staff is nice and safety concious.

We rode the coaster multiple times on our stay. My eight year old son absolutely loved it and wanted to go faster. The staff are excellent and make sure safety is number one.

This is a thrill ride that you have control of your own speed. Ride takes you right through the scenic forest and hills of Blue Mountain. Friendly staff with clear and simple directions to make the ride safe and fun.
