Alpine slides are located all over the country. They are fun and exciting but also extremely dangerous. Riders follow one another through the slide and control their own speed using the handles on their cart. That being said, the chances of you crashing into the person in front of you are high. A review on Trip Advisor said: “my hand brake wasn’t working and I had to roll off to keep from hitting the woman in front of me at full speed. I still hit her but at least it wasn’t as bad. You also need to be aware that there is no safety equipment. Nothing for your head or to protect your back. So if someone crashes into you, chances are their sled is going right into your lower back.”
