Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a unique, family-friendly thrill ride that puts you in the driver's seat!

The first mountain coaster in the Smokies!

Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a unique, family-friendly thrill ride that puts you in the driver’s seat, literally!

The single or double rider coaster cars coast down the mountain on a specially-designed silent track. Use individual brake handles to control your speed and enjoy the ride, any way you like.

We’re open year-round, so bring the family (some age and height restrictions apply)… no special skills required. We have an uphill lift that takes you to the top. Then get ready for an exciting coaster ride down the mountain. The Gatlinburg Mountain Roller Coaster lets you enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains in a whole new way!

Who Can Ride?

The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is fun for everyone. Children must be at least 3 years old, meet the minimum height requirment of 38″ tall and ride with an adult. No special skills are required. Bring the entire family and discover the Great Smoky Mountains in a whole new way. Riders can enjoy the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster alone (must be at least 56” tall) or with a friend. Each coaster car is built for single or double riders and is equipped with safety harnesses and lap belts.

How Do I Get To The Top?

No Uphill Walking Required! Instead, our uphill lift system will carry you to the top, just sit back and enjoy the view. Then, once you reach the top, away you go down the mountain in your coaster car (single or double) with individual speed controls that let you set your speed. The track carries you up and over the forest floor with lots of twists, curves and surprises. Remember, the coaster is silent, but you don’t have to be!
