When the legs are tired, take the Gold Runner Coaster down!

The Team November 2nd, 2010

Over the summer, construction and improvments in Breckenridge have not just been limited to the slopes. 12th November, opening day in Breckenridge, will see the debut of the Gold Runner Coaster, 2500 ft of twists and turns below Peak 8.

Located at the base of Peak 8, thrill seekers can take to the Gold Runner Coaster cars, either solo or with a friend and enjoy a thrilling journey through the forest around and above the ski runs, but don’t worry you have control of your own speed. The BreckConnect Gondola provides easy access to this new adrenaline-packed attraction, which is suitable for adults and children. We can’t wait to try it!

A new way to get to town!
