Grover's Alpine Express

Each car has room for two riders.  The front car is slightly longer to allow room for the Grover statue.   The coaster may be fairly tame, but it still has wheels above, below, and outside of the rails in order to safely lock it on the tubular steel rails.  The blue metal fins extending from the bottom of the cars pass between sets of large magnets at the end of the ride.  The magnetic braking system slows the train almost to a complete stop.
