Alpengeist Roller Coaster at Busch Gardens

Alpengeist is a steel roller coaster at the Busch Gardens theme park in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Alpengeist has an Alpine mountain region theme and was created to resemble a runaway ski lift. After climbing to an Alpine high of 195 feet, riders are hurtled through six staggering inversions at speeds up to 67 miles per hour.

When it opened in 1997, Alpengeist was the world’s tallest complete circuit inverted coaster.
