Also called mountain coasters, these gravity-operated rides installed on a hill or mountain utilizes a track made of stainless steel tubes. The sleds are designed to not come off of the track during the ride and riders control their speed by applying or releasing brakes connected to levers on each side of the sled.
This 3,198 foot (975m) long Wiegand alpine coaster opened in 2005 and is one of the only ones that start at the top of the lift, which you have to take back up to the top of the mountain in order to exit off the ride.
