There's a coaster to ride....even in winter! Head to Holiday Valley Ski Resort in Ellicottville, N.Y. for the brand new 'Sky High Mountain Coaster!' Individual cars, seating up to two people each, take riders up a 283 foot vertical rise through the woods and then down the winding and twisting steel tracks back to the station below. The whole ride from start to finish lasts about six minutes. You control your own speed with levers on the side of the car.
Open every day from 2 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Admission with your ski lift ticket is $6 per ride or all day for $20! Without a lift ticket, $8 per ride, $42 all day. Children must be at least 3 years old and 36 inches tall to ride with an adult. 8 years old and 42 inches tall to ride alone.
Getn' There: NYS Thruway west to Buffalo continuing west to Exit # 55 to Rt. 219 south, 50 miles to Ellicottville.
