If you’ve ridden a roller coaster at a theme park, make time this summer to try a different type of coaster: an alpine coaster. And if you’re anywhere near North Carolina, you might as well try the Wilderness Run Alpine Coaster, which twists and turns for more than half a mile through the Blue Ridge Mountains.
