Zoom down the twists and turns that follow Vail Mountain’s natural contours on the Forest Flyer’s raised gravity-fueled track. It combines alpine and coaster for an experience like no other. With rider-controlled cars, you pick your speed and thrill level as you zip into forests and out into breath-taking views during its 3,400 foot descent.

For kids who do not meet the height requirements, parents get a free ride-along ticket. Tickets can be purchased at the base of the Eagle Bahn Gondola, individually or as part of the Ultimate Adventure Pass that includes the Forest Flyer, Golden Eagle Ziplines, Adventure Courses, Summer Tubing, Scenic Gondola Ride and more on Vail Mountain at the top of Lionshead.
