Great news Idahoans! A mountain coaster will be constructed this spring in Boise. 

Bogus Basin recently announced in a press release that the resort plans on making major summer upgrades this spring and summer. One of those improvements will be a mountain coaster.

I personally have never been on a mountain coaster, but I know some of you have been on the Alpine Coaster in Park City, Utah. This YouTube video of the Alpine Coaster gives you an idea of what to expect at Bogus Basin.

Bogus Basin plans on opening their 3,500 foot mountain coaster on August 1st. Other summer improvements will include:

  • Enhancing the base area
  • New heated patio area and “great lawn”
  • Summer tubing
  • Expanded outdoor seating and food & beverage outlet near Simplot Lodge
  • Family Fun Zone, including gold panning, bungee jump and a 32-foot climbing wall
  • Installation of a 70-foot conveyor lift and create a small beginner slope
