"Unlike more familiar coasters, this is a sled ride that zooms down a hill. But Ruben considers it a roller coaster because "it runs on a track, and it's powered by gravity." It's reminiscent of the first roller coasters, which were developed 400 years ago in Russia as rides down wood-supported hills. But on this ride, visitors sit on a sled and can control their speed as they zoom down a mountain."
