There is another adventure that you can do this fall. This time in Lake Placid. The Cliffside Coaster is the longest of its kind with spectacular views. According to WWTI.com, there is a new cliffside coaster that has opened at the Lake Placid 1980 Olympic Sports Complex at Mount Van Hoevenberg. It opened last weekend and the Cliffside Coaster is the longest of its kind. It runs along the 1980 Olympic bobsled track.
