Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster, Blue Mountains

4.5
#1 of 9 in Fun & Games in Grey County
Glide along the exhilarating Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster, a downhill coaster adventure through the Blue Mountains that provides the chance to zigzag through the forest all year long (even in winter among the mountain snow). Twist and turn along the track for 1,085 m (3,560 ft) through natural forest terrain. The cart sits 6 m (20 ft) off the ground, and you can speed through the course reaching up to 42 km/h (26 m/h); carts can hold one or two people with the ability to control the speed. Experience views of Georgian Bay and Niagara Escarpment. Note that the driver has to be a minimum of 16 years old, and passengers must be at least three years old but not older than 12.

  • I went on this ride with my 11 year old daughter who (like me) doesn't really like roller coasters. But you're in your own car (1 or 2 people) and the clincher is that you control the speed yourself. ...  more »

  • We went here to kick off a bachelorette weekend. The wait in line was significant - 45 minutes probably - but it was worth it. This was so much fun. Planning on going again this week. If you like to g...  more »

  • I'm usually not big on rollercoasters, but this was a really fun experience. It was exhilarating enough that it was enjoyable yet adrenaline pumping. Unique also due to the fact that you're going down a track in a forest covered portion of the mountain, and can somewhat control your speed. Should be checked out if in the area!
  • Loads of fun. Weather its cold out or not. Glad too see the ride has gotten safer over the years. I enjoyed it as a child and loved bringing my young kids out for a fun day. Worth the nostalgia
  • Had so much fun! We went on family day weekend and figured we may have a bit of a wait as from what I’d seen from other reviews but I don’t think we waited longer then 10 minutes! The way up the mountain is pretty slow but on your way down it goes pretty fast! I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to go on again.
  • As a college student it's kind of boring since you'll most likely be held up by the parents and their kids in front of you going at snail speeds. Also, the carts are single rider or ride with kid, so I'd imagine it'd be great to go with your kids. Has a nice scenic view and would definitely recommend to parents and kids for all seasons.
  • Super fun and cool. Had a great time, the kids wanted to do it again. The good thing is that you can control the speed if you dont enjoy going fast. Neat adventure
