The track bobs and weaves for nearly 1 mile down a hill, offering stunning views of Texas Hill Country along the way. Riders can zoom down the mountain at speeds up to 25 miles per hour or take a slower if they wish. The park also has a fully stocked general store, an on-site bar, and dining options.
