A pretty nice ride and it gets pretty fast towards the end.

Easily the smoothest coaster in the whole park and fun to ride if you want to take a break. But, its not thrilling or exciting at all really and Im only gonna ride it if a partner wants to. A nice break to rest up for more intense experiences.

This is a much better ride than it looks like. It is very unusual, which gives it a boost since you just dont see these very often. It has a great mix of excitement and calmness to make a very good ride. Kids really love it because of the unusual movements of the trains and the fact that there are no tracks. It isnt too rough to complain about, and it is exciting enough for them to ask for re-rides. A very fun ride!

Best bobsled coaster Ive been on. Okay, thats not saying much since Ive only been on this and Disaster Transport, but I had a lot of fun riding it. It had some good turns, wasnt overly braked, was pretty long in comparison to Disaster Transport, and it didnt hurt that there wasnt a long wait for it. The seating arrangements may not be preferable to some and can create a longer wait since groups or pairs may choose to ride alone, but I liked it better than riding side by side.

An OK bobsled coaster, with some good turns and drops. Nice second half.

This is a cool little ride with a few really nice helices with surprising forces. I only ride it if theres no line, but if youve never been on a bobsled coaster, you should definitely make a point to check it out when youre at the park

APPEARANCE-7 It was raining like crazy so I didnt get to enjoy the scenary much, but the cars looked pretty good and the track wasnt bad either. CAPACITY-3 At 12 people max per train this thing would be brutal on a busy day. RIDE QUALITY-6 The cars are very comfortable and for this style coaster it moves really weel. The brake run in the middle brings you to a halt so that hurts. FUN-7 The rain probably helped make it more exciting along with no line but that doesnt change the fact the curves were really neat and it felt a lot more like bobsleding then DT at CP. RERIDE-5 Totally depends on the line. Short line definately, long line no chance so I give it a five. OVERALL-28 AVG-5.6 It deserves to be round up since this is a real good version of a bobsled. I believe my rating is still higher on DT but that is because of huge personal biasis and history this is definately the better bobsled coaster.

I rode Avalanche once, partially to see if there is hope for Bobsled coasters after riding Disaster Transport, and partially to make the odometer rotate. I was actually in for a bit of a suprise, because it was a good bit better than DT, for two reasons. First, it didnt have the lame themeing, and second, the turns caused the trains to really pick up some good momentum at some points, and the pace overall was decent. Still, it wasnt a super-fun ride, but worth a shot, because this may be one of the best ones around.

A much better ride than the one at Great Escape. These bobsleds put you lower to the ground, trains move faster and the cornering is more intense.
