New Coaster Will Take Riders Through Forest And Ski Runs

North America's first Brandauer brand mountain roller coaster is set to open early this summer at the Revelstoke Mountain Resort in British Columbia, Canada.

Named The Pipe Mountain Coaster -- or just Pipe for short -- the single-track attraction will attain speeds of up to 26 miles per hour as it traverses the nearly one-mile stretch between the resort's Revelation Lodge and Village Plaza.

A promotional video shows the coaster in a bird's-eye-view that switches to a first-person perspective as a passenger barrels through a tunnel, forest and then takes a 915-foot vertical drop.

The Pipe is set to open on May 21.
