If your family loves the thrill of zipping down a mountain in a roller coaster car all your own, you’ll love this mountain coaster located in downtown Gatlinburg. The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a unique roller coaster that winds silently up and down through the woods of Gatlinburg.
Look, Mom, No Brakes!
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is the first non-motorized mountain coaster in the Smokies; you coast down the mountain on a silent track. Your speed is controlled with a hand brake. So you can go as fast or as slow as you’re comfortable with. Riding down without the brakes is a blast! The wind in your face and the silent track rising up to greet you make this journey through the trees one to remember!
Little Folks Can Ride, Too
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster can be ridden by those 3 years old and older. Young children must meet the height requirement of 38” and ride with an adult. This ride is great for everyone because there is no uphill climbing necessary. The special lift system will carry you to the top of the mountain where you’ll hop in the driver’s seat and set off on your adventure. Made for single or double riders, the roller coaster cars are equipped with safety harnesses and lap belts so Mom can enjoy the ride, too, knowing that her family is safe on the way down.
Remember, you control the speed, so if you like the feel of the wind in your hair, let it go!
