The Best Attractions in Gatlinburg Can’t Hold a Candle to the Coaster
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is one of the only attractions in Gatlinburg, TN that stays open year-round, and doesn’t close just because of a little rain or snow. The beautiful Smokies deserve to be experienced all the time. Until you’ve raced through a winter wonderland, seeing the snow fall softly on the mountain side as adrenaline pumps through your body around another curve, you simply haven’t lived. We’re also open after dark, when the track becomes magical. Thousands of twinkling lights show you the way through the forest as you ride.
Double Your Fun with a Friend
The coaster can be enjoyed by one person in a single car, or by two together in a double car. Kids under 56 inches tall must ride with an adult (and kids must be at least 38 inches to ride at all). Bring your friend for a fun day on the town, or have the most unique date night you’ve ever been on with your loved one. Consider the stories you could tell your grandchildren if your very first date was on a roller coaster! Make sure you visit the coaster first and then you can always try out the other great attractions in Gatlinburg, TN later .
