Ghostly Gangplank


Welcome to the Flying Dutchman's Ghostly Gangplank

This is a new ropes course above Nickelodeon Universe

Climbing up to the first level

By the time you get to the top level, you are very close to the ceiling of the mall

It's fun and scary at the same time

The final obstacle is a gangplank high over the park below

It's fun and a great addition to the park

Timber Twister Alpine Coaster

ALPINE COASTER
Welcome to Spirit Mountain near Duluth, MN

This is the Timber Twister Alpine Coaster.

Let's tale it for a spin

Down the mountain we go!

The curves have very little banking

Your sled really gets to booking it in this corner

There are even a few air time bumps along the course

The entire course in the woods

There is this large helix about halfway down

Towards the end of the down course you get this warning

After a fast trip down, you get to enjoy a slow climb back up the hill

Some great views on the way back up

Finally at the very top you unload here.

Timber Twister is a great attraction located at this ski resort

Well worth the drive north from Mall of America
