Smile Labadee alpine coaster ride
Is this something a group of 16-18 yrs olds will enjoy or is it not challenging enough to make a full day (in between swimming and hanging out) ticket worth the price ?

Thanks for the input.

I didn't take the ride but it sure looks like fun, and the people I talked to said it was great. To some there's never enough challenge--I use to be that way many moons ago.

Thanks Sonny; so much has changed since we last visited the island. I couldn't give them the input on whether it would be worth spending the money for 6-8 teens but knew I could get the input from cruisers here for them.

When are they going? I'll be in Labadee on the 4th of April. I just might take a ride and give you a thumbs up or down.

Sonny, thanks for thinking of me; they are cruising out on March 3rd I believe..So, If they do it (at least 4 boys & maybe 4 girls), I'll make sure that I put up something regarding their input as you know they would be looking for somewhat of a challange.

We took this ride last Feb. in Labadee. We really enjoyed it. But, we are in our 60's! You control what speed you want to go on the ride. The only downside that I could see is you can only go as fast as the car in front of you. It isn't a roller coaster like you see at an amusement park.

The views are pretty, but there isn't enough time to take pictures. It was fun and I would do it again.
