Resort opens winter roller coaster

mtcoast.jpgA resort in Maryland has opened a new thrill for winter vacationers.

The Mountain Coaster, at Maryland’s Wisp Resort, is a roller coaster that can operate year round — even in the winter.

The German-made attraction is friendly to those who like to ski. It is high enough for skiers at Wisp to pass underneath it.

The Mountain Coaster runs on stainless steel rails, and it will only have to shut it down when condition are icy.

At this time, more than 80 are in operation in Europe.
