Ice Mountain Bobsled is a steel roller coaster located at Enchanted Forest in Turner, Oregon, USA.

History

The Ice Mountain Bobsled was originally more of an alpine slide that floated along a 24" fiberglass track. In 1985 it was converted into a more traditional roller coaster. Riders are completely enclosed in the trains via a plexiglass enclosure on each car.

Design

Elements

Trains

2 trains with 3 cars per train. Riders are arranged inline in 2 rows for a total of 6 riders per train.

Capacity Variations

2 adults per car, or 1 adult and 2 children, or 3 children per car.[1][2]

Weight Limits

Each car's guest load can equal up to 399 pounds. A total train can weigh no more than 1197 pounds per train.[1][2]

Car Style

Each car features an inclosed top that locks into place during the ride and is lifted at the station by attendants to allow guests to enter and exit. The enclosure is made of tubular metal frame and plexiglass and features a plexiglass screen with airflow holes on the front of each car to reduce drag. The air then escapes via a plexiglass back panel strip that is slightly lower than the plexiglass roof and slightly higher than the base of the enclosure. The sides are solid plexiglass.[1][2]
