Are you ready to "fly like an eagle?"

Cypress Mountain Resort says visitors will feel an incredible adrenaline rush as they take off from the top of the Eagle Express Quad Chair on Black Mountain on its thrilling new downhill attraction.

Over a year in the making, The Eagle Coaster travels over 1700 metres with 279 meters of vertical drop down the mountainside, but it is suitable for all ages and physical capabilities.

Riders can safely reach speeds of up to 40 km per hour winding down the track with forested vistas and exciting bends in the track.

Cypress Mountain adds that the new Mountain Coaster will offer another recreational activity for people to enjoy on the mountain in the summer months. It is slated to open on July 12 with 80 spots available for riders per day.

The Coaster was fabricated by Austrian manufacturer Sunkid - a world leader in providing family adventure attractions around the world. The Sunkid ride features a low to the ground single-track design with backrest carts equipped with a hand brake, which allows each rider to control their own speed.

"Our coasters have been a huge success in Europe, and we are excited to have the opportunity to install one at Cypress Mountain in beautiful West Vancouver, British Columbia. The terrain on the slopes of Black Mountain will perfectly complement our technology and create an amazing ride," said Sunkid's CEO, Emanuel Wohlfarter.

Ticket prices include a chairlift ride up to the top of the attraction and start at $29 CAD. All dates and hours of operation are weather and conditions permitting.
