C’mon and Ride Our Mountain Coaster Through the Woods!
If you plan to take a break and spend a little time in the area, be sure to add a thrilling ride through the woods on a mountain coaster onto your list of things to do in Gatlinburg. Sure, Gatlinburg offers a plethora of entertainment options, but there is nothing like the experience of riding a self-controlled cart through the woods as you glide down the mountain. Go fast and hit speeds of up to 35 mph or take your time, stop, and enjoy the amazing views. It’s all up to you (or if you ride double, you and your partner) to create a memorable ride.
Spring Is the Best Here in Gatlinburg
Of all the many things to do in Gatlinburg, taking a nice slow ride on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster should be at the top of your list. Spring brings with it one of the most spectacular sights of the season as the wildflowers come into their own. The meadows are a riot of color that you simply have to see to believe. Going down the side of the mountain on a one or two-person cart is one of the best possible ways to see the area in all its resplendent glory.
Each of the carts comes equipped with brakes that let you control your speed all the way down. Beyond that, the carts are whisper silent and quite comfortable. There are no clunky chain drives, nothing but the gentle sound of the rubber wheels gliding along the track and the wind in your hair. The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is so quiet that unless you are making your own noises, the local wildlife won’t notice your presence.
See the “Locals” from the Seat of Your Mountain Coaster
Spring in the Gatlinburg area also means animal babies! After a long winter, many of the local critters have their babies. As you ride the mountain coaster, you never know what you might see. We have seen fawns, bear cubs, baby bunnies, and a myriad of other youngsters. What you might see can change from day to day or even hour to hour. Imagine having front row seats to watch a mother teaching her young fawn how to move around the woods. Or perhaps seeing a mother bunny with her little family in tow.
A Change of Pace
For a complete change of pace, why not chase the moon as you ride the mountain coaster? The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is open until 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The track is lit with hundreds of tiny lights to help guide your way down.
Make sure you make some time to spend riding this amazing mountain coaster and create memories that will last a lifetime. Buy your first ticket at full price and get your next rides on the same day at a discounted price. Come for one ride and you might find yourself addicted to the experience!
