Ride on an alpine roller coaster

If the dad in your life is a thrill seeker, he might just enjoy Washington’s brand-new alpine roller coaster. It’s located in Leavenworth making it a great spot to enjoy hiking before or after. Or you can simply go on the coaster over and over if that’s more up dad’s alley.
