The longest coaster in North America will be right here in Colorado, at Steamboat Resort. The Outlaw Mountain Coaster is expected to open this August.

According to the Steamboat Resort's website, the Outlaw Mountain Coaster has been scheduled to open this August (a specific date has yet to be released). The roller coaster is said to be more than 6,280 linear feet and descends 400 vertical feet, with a rise of up to 40 feet above the ground. Once open and operational, it will be the longest coaster in North America. The coaster will have automatic brakes in some areas, but riders will be the ones controlling the speed of the carts by pressing down on levers. All carts are attached with wheels that are situated both under and on top of the track. Admission: Single Use (ages 7 and up) $20 | Single Use (ages 6 and under) $15 | Additional Ride (same day) $15 Tickets are now available and can be purchased at the Ticket Office located in Gondola Square, or at the Adventure Depot located next to Maverick Mini Golf, which opened on June 30. The Outlaw Mountain Coaster will be part of the Coca-Cola Adventure Zone. The Adventure Zone includes the Maverick Mini Golf course, a climbing wall, tubing lane, mini-bounce, ropes course, bungee jump, and much more! There will even be a new gondola and bike park that will open on July 21. This looks like the perfect place for a wonderful weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city!
