Having fun is an innate desire for humans and animals alike. As long as species have been around, they have been inventing games, contraptions and devices to help them stay entertained—and the drive to have fun is also what spawned the invention of the mountain coaster.
Mountain coasters, also known as alpine coasters, have been around since 1996 and have been changing the way people have fun ever since. Below, we will be looking at some of the history and unique traits of mountain coasters so you can study up before you come and experience the thrill for yourself.
The first mountain coaster (trademarked as an alpine coaster) was invented by a German company called Brandauer and opened in Austria in 1996.
They were inspired by the popularity of bobsled coasters but decided to use rails instead of a trough for the track. To this day, Brandauer is known for its single-tube aluminum design, and its alpine coasters can be found throughout towns in the Alps.
While the original Brandauer design was constructed with a monorail-style track, some mountain coasters are built with a double-track system that is similar to a roller coaster.
Regardless of the single or double-track system, alpine coasters are beneficial in mountainous areas because their design allows them to run year-round and not be hindered by snow or ice.
Mountain coasters are not only a lot of fun, but they are also an interactive experience for riders. Riders can control their speed using a lever brake system on their cart, but there are still anti-collision measures in place to prevent any dangerous riding.
Today, the longest mountain coaster in the world is 17,400 feet, according to the Guinness Book of World Records! It is located at the Naturlandia resort near Sant Julià de Lòria, Andorra.

Howdy, pardners! If you visited our last blog, you remember we answered the all-important question: what is a mountain coaster? (Cheat sheet: It’s like a roller coaster, but it follows the contours of the landscape. Plus, you, the driver, are in charge!)
Here at Mustang Mountain Coaster, we’re busy constructing what portends to be one of the most exciting mountain coasters in the West. While we won’t be open until Memorial Day 2021, we’d love it if you could whet your appetite for adventure on one of the other exciting mountain coasters scattered across the U.S. of A.

Are you looking for some family fun in the Colorado mountains? Look no further than Mustang Mountain Coaster!
If you’ve enjoyed a mountain coaster ride before, we can promise this one will offer some of the most spectacular views. If you haven’t ridden a mountain coaster, please let us educate you about what it is and why it’s so thrilling.
Also known as a summer toboggan, a mountain coaster resembles a roller coaster, but it takes advantage of the natural slopes and curves of the environment to provide a unique ride. Like a roller coaster, a mountain coaster runs on a fixed track and offers plenty of thrills.
But that’s where the similarity ends. These two-person cars run independently—not as part of a long train—and allow the unparalleled experience of the great outdoors.
You're also in the driver's seat. Unlike a typical roller coaster, a mountain coaster allows the driver some control. Sitting in the back of the open-air, two-person car, the driver uses hand brakes to control speed. This lets you pick between a leisurely, sight-seeing ride or a heart-pounding spree of speed.
The short answer is: everywhere. Mountain coasters combine a passel of feel-good pursuits into one glorious package.
Nature Creates Peace.
Plenty of research has shown that being out in nature, even for a little while, reduces stress hormones and boosts the immune system. You can see for yourself how the Mustang Mountain Coaster will lift your spirits. Even while we’re under construction, beautiful views abound.
Get That Adrenaline Pumping.
Meanwhile, speed, as we all know, can produce an adrenaline rush. What does it mean when you feel a flush of energy as you whoosh down a slope in the beautiful Rocky Mountains…and then coast gently to cruising speed, as your heart rate slows and your eyes lift to the blue horizon? We don’t know if anyone’s studied the exact science of the mountain coaster experience, but we’re here to tell you: It’s a rush!
If you’re ready for more family fun in the Colorado mountains than you can handle, book your visit to Mountain Mustang Coaster in Estes Park. We’ll open our doors Memorial Day Weekend, 2021.
