Looking for a unique birthday present for that special someone? Look no further than the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster — one of Gatlinburg’s premier attractions. A ride on a mountain coaster is a birthday present they won’t soon forget. And after all, getting older doesn’t mean they have to slow down, right?
A Unique Experience
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is one of the area’s first mountain roller coasters, and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area. With speeds of up to 31 mph, even the hardiest of thrill-seekers will enjoy zooming down the mountain with the wind in their hair. And unlike regular roller coasters, they’ll notice the silence on this one — there are no motors or engines carrying them along. All they have bringing them down the mountain is the force of gravity.
Birthday Fun for Everyone
Regardless of age, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster works for everyone. Those with little legs or who have a harder time walking will be happy to know there’s no need to hike to the top of the roller coaster. A special lift system gently carries them up and deposits them at the top, where they’ll experience downtown Gatlinburg from a whole new vantage point. Once they’re situated in the car and strapped in, they’re in full control of how fast they descend. Thrill seekers will want to ride down without applying the brakes. Those more cautious may want to slow themselves down a little and enjoy the mountain scenery along the way. Regardless of how they do it, it’s an experience they’ll remember for years to come.
Children as young as 3 years old can ride with an adult, making this an exciting experience for kids. As long as they’re at least 38” tall, they can ride double with a responsible companion 16 or older and at least 56” tall. And the adult/child discount makes riding double an appealing family option.
