Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain is a wooden roller coaster located at Indiana Beach in Monticello, Indiana, USA. It was the last roller coaster completed by Custom Coasters International (the company went bankrupt while building the New Mexico Rattler). The majority of the roller coaster is enclosed.

History[edit | edit source]

Superstition Mountain was originally an electrically powered dark ride built in-house and opened in 1978. In November 2001, Custom Coasters International announced that they would be replacing the ride with a roller coaster. The elevator lift was also added at this time.[1] Lost Coaster of Superstition Mountain opened on June 8, 2002.

Design[edit | edit source]

A train in the elevator lift

The ride is built around an artificial mountain, which it enters several times. It begins with an elevator lift, which lifts a section of track with a train directly upwards. This is followed by many tight turns and small drops.

Trains[edit | edit source]

Each train has two cars, each with two rows facing each-other. The cars are enclosed with a wire-mesh cage.
