Break Out the GoPro and Capture the Ride of a Lifetime on this Mountain Coaster

There’s nothing quite like bringing your digital camera – or your phone with a camera – with you wherever you go. You can grab shots of the unexpected, the exciting, and the just plain fun whenever the mood strikes you, and someone around the world can view them in a heartbeat. They’ve changed the world!

Cameras aren’t perfect, though. You want to grab a shot and you find yourself stuffing your water bottle under your arm, awkwardly holding it there while you try and frame the shot without dropping the bottle. You go to take a photo of something whizzing by out a passenger-side car window, and you end up with nothing but a blur. It seems like those are just the breaks – what can you do?

Thankfully, Now You Can GoPro!

Ever since GoPros arrived on the scene, they’ve changed the whole photography experience. Now you can give your friends and family a version of the world as you see it, hands-free, in clear, crisp HD video. Just mount the camera where you’d like it, and head off to your adventure. Popular GoPro shots include things like skydiving, surfing, and shots from drones, but why not give the GoPro a try on a mountain roller coaster?

And Not Just Any Coaster – The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster!

A GoPro shot of your ride on a mountain roller coaster could be just the thing to give your friends and family a fun glimpse into your view of your vacation. The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a one-of-a-kind experience in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, where riders zip down a mountainside in the middle of the Smoky Mountain woods, breathing in the fresh air and taking in the scenery.

The track is surrounded by the crisp greenery of Tennessee nature during the day, and alternates between scenic lights and thrilling darkness at night. Riders can ride alone or in pairs, and the carts are actually able to stop and start on their own, so you can take the track down at blistering speeds, then pull up to a beautiful vista and surprise your GoPro audience with a slow shot of the view. It’s up to you!

Make Sure to Share Your Shots!

The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster has its own hashtag, #CoasterMoments! Once you’ve taken your GoPro video of yourself riding the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, make sure to include the phrase #CoasterMoments when you share your footage on Facebook or Instagram, and you’ll be connected to other mountain roller coaster riders who love reliving the thrills of the Tennessee hills. The coaster is open rain or shine, all year round, so strap on your GoPro and get to Gatlinburg as soon as you can!
