BRANSON, Mo. (AP) - The second mountain coaster in Branson is expected to open as early as this summer.
Collin Wheeler, marketing coordinator for Tennessee-based FACE Amusement, tells the Springfield News-Leader that the Branson Coaster doesn't have a specific opening date but it will be "sooner than August."
Mountain coasters, or alpine coasters, are installed on steep hillsides so that gravity can give riders a thrill as they descend along an established track in carts. Branson's first mountain coaster, The Runaway, opened last August.
