In honor of Father’s Day, Okemo Mountain Resort is giving every dad ONE FREE ride on Timber Ripper, the resort’s new mountain coaster attraction, when accompanied by his children on Sunday, June 19, 2011.
Timber Ripper is Okemo’s amazing single car coaster that works hard all year round. Its stainless steel railed course takes you through an alpine forest along the contours of the mountain at Okemo’s Jackson Gore. The sled compartments, which can hold up to two riders max, climb 1600 feet and have a 375-foot drop. Check out the Ripper video below!
Access to the coaster is at the bottom of the Coleman Brook Express lift at Okemo’s Jackson Gore base area, and runs in most weather conditions. Tickets are $13 for drivers and $9 for passengers. Drivers must be at least 48” tall to operate the sled and passengers must be more than 36” tall to ride.
The Timber Ripper hours of operation are from 11AM to 6PM on weekends and holidays through June 30, and 11AM to 6 PM, seven days a week, starting July 1. During the Jackson Gore Outdoor Music Series concerts Friday nights this summer, the hours will be extended until 8 p.m.
