The wait is over! The Sky Flyer Mountain Coaster opens for the season this Friday, May 19.
The Mountain Coaster at Holiday Valley is similar to a roller coaster, but it’s built on a mountain.
One or two riders sit in a “car” attached to rails that pulls you up the hill, then it follows a zig zagging spiraling path down the mountain. Riders are able to control their speed with brakes on the car. An uphill track 1865 feet long, with a vertical rise of 283 feet, makes way for a downhill track consisting of 15 curves of varying length, 12 waves, one jump, plus a huge spiral.
The Coaster is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays through Sundays (plus Memorial Day Monday) from May 19 to June 11 and open daily starting June 16.
The Coaster is part of Holiday Valley’s Sky High Adventure Park, which also houses the Aerial Park and Climbing Forest.
