After years of appeals and legal challenges, the Colorado Supreme Court has cleared the path for a 1,960-foot mountain roller coaster outside Estes Park.

The Colorado Supreme Court has given the go-ahead to ousted Estes Park mayor Cody Walker and his Yukutat Land Corp. for a massive mountain coaster on the outskirts of the small mountain town.

The Coloradoan is reporting that Randy Hunt, the town's community development director, classified the ride as a park and recreation facility, which bypasses an Estes Valley Development code that would have halted the development should it have been classified as an outdoor commercial recreation establishment.
