The Nor’easter Mountain Coaster – Year round Adventure!

Noreaster

The Mountain Coaster is 4,300 feet of pure excitement! A state-of-the-art gravitational hybrid of an alpine slide and a roller coaster, this ride is built to take full advantage of every peak, dip, vertical drop, and turn our mountain has to offer.

You may purchase tickets for a single ride on the coaster or buy a full day pass and ride as often as you like – because once you try it, we’re sure you’ll want more! Each ride lasts 5-8 minutes.

Your Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster adventure begins on the first floor of our Adventure Center Base Lodge. The speed of each two-person car is independently controlled by you – giving you the option to make each ride a unique adventure. Take it slow and steady as you soak in the scenery, or make an exhilarating descent through the forest at speeds up to 28 miles per hour. There are no big drops & no inverted loops on the ride. The track runs low to the ground, never more than 20 feet high. Your Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster tour ends on the second floor of our Adventure Center Base Lodge. Upon completion, you will have an opportunity to purchase a keepsake photo of your experience.

Safety Regulations:

  • Rider must be at least 3 years old and 38 inches tall to ride the coaster with a companion who is at least 16 years old.

  • Rider must be 54 inches tall to ride the coaster alone.

  • To ride double, at least one rider must be 54 inches tall and 16 years old with the taller rider in the back.

  • Maximum combined weight per car is 350 pounds (or 330 pounds in wet weather.)

What to wear/ bring

Dress for comfort for the weather. Closed toe shoes are not required but ski boots are not permitted (winter operations). Before beginning the ride, it is recommended that you empty any pockets that do not zip. Lost items are difficult to recover in the one mile circuit covered by the coaster track and staff are not always available to seek them out. GoPro cameras are permitted but must be mounted. Selfie sticks are not allowed. Drivers must use their hands to control the hand brake so holding a camera is not permitted.

Customer Reviews:

Once in a lifetime experience that I would recommend to anyone! Easy to get to and the staff was awesome and made everyone feel at ease with their explicit instructions and laid back banter. Truly something that I will remember forever. Thanks for the experience.

We decided to make a fun family trip out of driving our oldest to his first year of college at SUNY Cortland. We have never been ziplining & we found this place on the internet. We made reservations & drove up from LI to the adventure center the day before our son had to move in. I am so glad we did - we had such a great time! We took many family pictures & videos. Unfortunately, it started to thunder & lightening 1/2 way through our zip tour but we received rain checks that are good for a year. When we left our son at college the next day it was very emotional & we forgot to take a family picture in his dorm. On the way home, we were so glad to have the pictures along with the ziplining experience to remember the time we took our oldest child to college. Thank you for the memories & the adventure. We highly recommend the Adventure Center as a MUST do when you are in the Cortland area.

I can't say enough great things about my time at the Adventure Center. The crew there is the BEST. Everyone was so great to talk to and work with and learn from. ALL very professional. I was there with my two kids, 13 and 9 years old. They had the BEST time. We were VERY fortunate to have had bad weather on Thursday the day of our original tickets, and came back Friday and basically had the whole place to ourselves!! We did the zip line tour with just the three of us and the two instructors wuch really enhanced the experience. We rode the mountain coaster probably 25 times, and my son rode it 35 times or so! My daughter did the Euro Bungy twice and again the instructors there were just amazing to her. The we did the Ropes course. Since me daughter was too short to go to the second level we did hte first level twice, and again we had the whole thing to ourselves. Then one of the instructors told me he would go around with her if I wanted to take a break, so he went around with her about 5 more times! It was truly the best day EVER! I will go back there with my kids, looking forward to trying it in the Winter time. Thank You to everyone that works there, you all made this week better for me and my kids vacation.

I took my two granddaughters, ages 12 and 13, to the Adventure Center. The 13-year old was excited, but the 12-year-old was apprehensive. The 13 year old completed all three of the zip-line levels and had a fabulous time. Since the 12-y213-old was too short for the upper levels of Aerial Challenge, the staff let her make multiple circuits of the lowest level challenge course. She had an absolute ball, and actually lapped me on the challenge courses by the time she was finished. The Mountain Coasters were a big hit. The self-speed-setting feature was truly appreciated by all of us. The lines for Euro-bungee took a while to go through, but those of us who participated felt it was well worth the wait. All staff members were very professional and courteous and made doubly sure we were hooked up correctly.
