We had heard of the Alpine Coaster for quite a while now, we were planning on doing one on our travels. We were looking for a camper van stop and the next morning we went out and just next to us a 2.6 kilometre alpine coaster track ! Adam and Katie went there first. Then dad and Katie and later on my brother and I. You can walk up or take the cable car which we did. For kids 3-6 it’s 4,70€ for the alpine coaster and for the alpine coaster and the cable car. Children up to 15 or 16 I think are 4,70€ or 7,00€ for the cable car and adults 6,60€ or 10€.

The  cable car is really cool going up you go up quite far to be honest. Adam and I took the combo pack you can do the alpine coaster and the flying fox, you’ve probably been wondering what the flying fox is since the beginning . It’s a 564 m long zip line, 40 m above a lake going up to 70 km/h ! Oh yes up to 70 km/h. For just the flying fox it’s 8,90€ for children and adults excluding the cable car.

There is also an adventure park at the top. So anyway we got the combo for 12€ it’s 17€ for adults, but you can find every price you need on their website which is at the top of this post. The flying fox was amazing, really good I have never done a zip that long, always 20-50 m but this was 564 m !

It feels really weird while you are in the air, Adam went first and I took some pics at the arrival area then me.

Once you have done the flying fox, the arrival area of the zip line is the departure area of the alpine coaster. So we did that after, in one luge each. Katie at the bottom ready to get us on camera.

So we boarded on the luges and green light, of we went, there are sort of levers on the side that you can pull back to brake, but I hardly used them !!! It was even better than the flying fox I think, mainly just because it lasts longer the zip line is something like 30-60 sec this is 3-5 mins.

You can reach up to a speed of 40 km/h, there is this really fun 360 deg area on the way down. It was really fun.
