With renewed emphasis on developing its summer activities, Attitash’s Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster is moving forward in its construction with a projected opening date of August 1st, 2010.

Working off a seven day a week schedule, hundreds of feet of track are being assembled and connected each day as the project nears completion. The Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster at the base of Attitash will afford guests a 1,420 foot ride straight up the mountain before careening through the downhill portion of the ride. The rider will be able to reach speeds of up to 25 mph before the Nor’Easter then drops down into a 2,880 foot ride through a exhilarating section of 15 banked turns, over a skier underpass and through a final 360 – degree loop, all before arriving back to the station of the thrill ride.
