Ahhh ... summer vacations at Mieders, Fulpmes and Matrei. These very words bring visions of fun and outdoor recreation to anyone you ask. The options for active fun are extensive. Strongly recommended is a downhill thrill ride on the Mieders Alpine Coaster, the steepest track in the Alps—it will speed you down to the valley surrounded by the gorgeous mountain scenery of lofty Serles Peak. Those riding the coaster will race along a 2,800 meter track, through the forest, and down the mountain in individual coaster cars. Equipped with rollers and brakes, excitement becomes a reality as you feel the rush of the 640 meter vertical drop. Riders have complete control of their speed (up to 42 kph) for a truly unique, hands-on experience. The alpine coaster makes 40 hairpin turns and is elevated off the ground like a roller coaster. This is truly a unique attraction. Enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery as the state-of-the-art 8-passenger gondola whisks you to the top of the track at Koppeneck.
