[R178R, Holiday Valley] in Ellicottville, N.Y., plans an Adventure Park in the Tannenbaum area, to offer aerial features and a Mountain Coaster.

The Aerial Adventure Park will open in June, if all goes according to plan, and the Mountain Coaster will be ready to roll during summer.

"We're really excited about the new Sky High Adventure Park," Holiday Valley President Dennis Eshbaugh said. "It will help attract more visitors to our region and give them a totally new outdoor experience."

Outdoor Ventures Group of Southport, Ct., will provide design and construction services on the Aerial Park, while Wiegan Sports of Utah and Germany will work on the Mountain Coaster.

The Aerial Park will have platforms in trees over 4 acres, with bridges connecting them made of logs, hanging chunks of wood, or loops of rope.

The Mountain Coaster consists of car on rails, which people ride up and down in, controlling speed with a hand brake.

The Aerial Park will operate spring, summer, and fall; the Mountain Coaster will operate year-round.

Holiday Valley has 58 slopes and 13 lifts; an 18-hole golf course; mountain biking trails, and a three-pool complex. Lodging is available on the slopes and golf course and in nearby Ellicottville.
