This summer, step up to the thrill of the newest adventure addition to the lineup of Attitash summer attractions, the Mountain Coaster, opening in the summer of 2010.
The assembly of the Mountain Coaster is currently underway at Attitash, with an anticipated opening date of August 1st and we hope to be able to “introduce” the media to this fabulous new attraction slightly in advance of the projected opening date.
Offering an exhilarating and scenic ride for virtually all ages and open in all weather, the Mountain Coaster carries you 1,430 feet up Attitash Mountain on twin stainless steel rails, providing spectacular views of the White Mountain scenery before descending on a thrilling 2,880 foot ride down through the forested mountain terrain, dropping 316 vertical feet through a series of banked curves, dips and straight-aways at rider controlled speeds of up to 25 miles per hour.
The addition of the new Mountain Coaster complements the already popular existing summer attractions at Attitash Ski Resort, including the Alpine Slide, Waterpark,  Eurobungy Trampoline, climbing wall, mountain biking trails, horseback riding and more, making Attitash Ski Resort the place to find your summer time fun.
With the fundamental changes in our lives, caused by the recession, it is more important than ever to be aware of the vacation possibilities so close to home here in New England.  Just 3 hours north of Boston, the fun and excitement of the year round, all weather Mountain Coaster at Attitash Ski Resort will be a dynamic addition to every family’s summer vacation experience in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, giving families even more reason to vacation just a short drive away from home.
