What an amazing experience! Even though the wait is long I do appreciate it is mostly covered so the shade was nice mixed with a breeze. Clearly safety is priority and they ensure you know all the rules before u get on and head up the hill. I also appreciate the security they have with cameras and staff all along... More

This was our second visit to the Ridge Runner. This luge like ride, although a bit pricey provides a thrilling, fast and picturesque ride down Blue Mountain. Kids of any age, will love it. It's Fast and Fun.

Tons of fun! A bit on the expensive side for the time you actually spend on the ride but it’s the novelty of it. My son loved it.

If you love speed : the ridge runner will satisfy every thrill seeker - our son was nervous at first but in the end he went 4x ....it's very easy to control - push forward to go & just enjoy the ride (if you get nervous on turns let up on the lever & the brakes engage to slow you... More

Amasing time for all family to stay for a week in the resort itself. Not expensive at all. Many activities and very nice weather in summer. I went with my kids and had so much fun. We stayed for 2 days but definitely should have stayed for a week.

Did it 4 times with my kids. Just watch for younger kids getting on a few cars before you. They can get scared and then the parents go too slow and everyone piles up behind them going down. Makes the run boring and potentially dangerous if the person behind you doesn't brake in time.

This is a fun "coaster" ride down the mountain. You ride in sleds that go down the track at a nice speed and you get a nice centrifugal rush. A we'd of advice, the back of the carts are narrow and quite hard plastic. Don't lean back to hard as each but will bruise your back, mine was pretty banged... More

Worst ride ever! Got in a bad crash and bruised both my tailbone and shoulder. Staff were rude and NO accident report was filled out. Its ridiculous I lost my prescription sunglasses. I am never going on this ride again!! They need to change it so it is safer for everyone.
