A new zip-line coaster from Quebec-based Zip-Rush is slated to open this month at Mont Sutton ski area in Quebec. Construction began on the roughly CA$1 million attraction in April.
According to Mont Sutton, it’s the first “forest zipline coaster in North America.” The ride is nearly 2,300 feet long, descending through the mountain forest making a series of turns, drops, and up to 450-degree loops. The rail is suspended from poles, and harnessed riders are suspended from a trolley that rides atop the rail.
When selecting a site for the attraction, Mont Sutton marketing director Nadya Baron said the resort team opted for a wooded area that offered enough pitch for a thrilling ride, was easily accessible, and provided views of other on-site attractions.
Final tests for the zip-line coaster are being performed this week, and an official opening date is forthcoming.
Tickets for the attraction will be CA$49. Participants must be at least 10 years old, weigh between 75-240 lbs., and be at least 47 inches tall.
