Inferno Mountain Coaster

Mom and daughter on Inferno Coaster

Introducing the Newest Thrill at Purgatory

The Inferno Mountain Coaster is the newest thrill at Purgatory Resort! The mountain views are extraordinary, the elevation and turns are thrilling, and as for those quick descents? They may inspire you to scream from the peaks.

You’ll control your car’s speed with a hand brake, so whether you want to take your time or go all out and reach top speeds, you’ll love winding through the trees and over the mountainside while remaining securely on the track at all times (riders will wear seat belts and the cars are equipped with anti-collision programming).
