An Alpine coaster or mountain coaster is a type of roller coaster which uses a bobsled-like sled or cart to run down a track usually built on the side of a hill. It is similar to an alpine slide which also uses a sled to run down a smooth concave track, but on an alpine coaster the sled runs instead on tubular rails and is not able to leave the track.
Both these types of track slide are sometimes denoted with the German name Sommerrodelbahn. They are often built by ski resorts in order to use existing winter infrastructure and provide additional summer income, although some installations are standalone.
As of 2007, the longest alpine coaster in the world is the 17,400 feet (5,300 m) long Tobotronc at Naturlandia, in the Pyrenees of Andorra. The highest alpine coaster in the world is the 3,300 feet (1,000 m) long Alpine Coaster of Glacier 3000 in Gstaad, Switzerland starting at an elevation of 9,747 feet (2,971 m).
Safety features, speed, tracks and layout vary by manufacturer. The inventor and leading manufacturer, with over 130 installations throughout the world, is Wiegand Sports GmbH.Provided By: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mountain_coaster
