World’s Highest Roller Coaster Opens In Colorado

A new world record has been broken, as the world’s highest roller coaster is now open at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Called “Cliffhanger,” the adventure coaster sits on the edge of the 6,890-foot-high Iron Mountain.

Because of its elevation and location, the $1 million roller coaster also provides panoramic cliff views of the surrounding canyons and mountains. Likewise, “Cliffhanger” features steep uphill climbs, abrupt downhill falls and sharps twists and turns.

“We hope it’s going to be a game changer to our park,” says the park’s maintenance manager, Kelly Bates.
