Calling all roller coaster junkies! Those of you who thrive on adrenaline and dopamine, and plan your vacations around the fastest roller coaster in the area. You know who you are. We’re talking to you! Have you ridden the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster yet?
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is rated 4.2 out of 5 stars on Google reviews, and is considered by many as one of the best attractions in Gatlinburg. The unique thing about this mountain coaster is that you’re flying down the mountain with no sound: no engines, no motors. Gravity is all that’s pulling you down the mountain, which is a new and kind of cool experience for most people. Of course, if you let out a banshee yell all the way down, it won’t be that quiet. But that’s okay! That just means you’re having fun.
The View from the Top
Getting to the top of the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is easy. Their specially designed lift carries you up and drops you off at the top. From there, you can see for miles, down into Gatlinburg, and across town to the Smoky Mountains in the distance. In the fall, it’s a sight to behold! It’s extra-special at night, when the lights of downtown sparkle below, and the ride itself is lit up in sections with hundreds of tiny white lights. Definitely something to check out!
Emotional Roller Coaster
Flying down the mountain is an awesome experience. In fact, you could call it an emotional roller coaster. The silent track, the wind in your face, your hair flying into the face of the person behind you if you decided to ride with a buddy – it’s a natural high and you’ll find yourself laughing all the way down. As you drop from the top of the mountain, the twists and turns may fill you with trepidation, and the drops produce butterflies in your stomach. And yes, in case you’re wondering, there is a brake handle in case you get a bit squeamish when you pick up speed. But if you’re a true roller coaster junkie, you won’t use it. The faster, the better, right?
If you’re an extreme roller coaster junkie, ride this mountain coaster at night for an even more thrilling experience. It’s completely different when you can’t see where you’re going!
