When it comes to Colorado there is no shortage of awesome things to do. USA TODAY recently ranked this alpine coaster in Colorado one of the best coaster rides of your lifetime.
Alpine Coaster at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
"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."
