Date Nights Sparkle on Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster

Even the most interesting couples eventually run into a common problem. You know the one: that feeling you both get when you’re tired of the movies and you’re bored of the nightlife, but you are definitely, seriously sick of spending the evening at home. Sometimes you just want to do something new and different with your one and only, but where do you even start looking for something like that?

Open Your Eyes to the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster

A roller coaster? On date night? Yes, really – and it’s a really great date. Think about it: What do all great dates have in common? There’s a little bit of excitement, a little bit of mystery, your heart is racing, and you never know what to expect, but you’re still excited for what’s to come. That’s the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, in a nutshell!

Yes, It’s Open Late!

Not sure how a mountain coaster could possibly fit into a late-night date? Well, you’ve got some flexibility. This Gatlinburg coaster is open until 9 PM on weekdays and 10 PM on weekends, so whether you’d like to enjoy it as a date-night appetizer or dessert is completely up to you. Multiple same-day rides are possible too, (and there’s a discount!) so if you’re visiting Gatlinburg from out of town and want to try out the coaster in the morning before taking out your other half in the evening, you can do just that, and save a few bucks on the second ride.

Late Nights are Special on this Gatlinburg Coaster

Riding a roller coaster at night seems like a little bit of a funny idea at first. Wouldn’t everything just be, well, dark? Sort of just dark and windy? Not so on this mountain coaster!  Fairy lights are strung throughout the track, which gives it a cool, sparkling glow – until the lights disappear for a moment, and you’re plunged into thrilling darkness. Then those gorgeous lights are back!

No Brakes on the Cart = No Brakes on Love!

One of the coolest things about this Gatlinburg coaster is how you can control the speed yourself. There’s a brake on the cart, so you can let it go and ride as fast as possible, or slow down and keep things at whatever pace you’d like. There’s something special, though, about the famous “no-brakes night rides” they offer on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster. These rides zoom through the cool night air and down the Tennessee mountainside as fast as possible, and really get everyone’s blood pumping. There’s nothing like it, and what more could you want from a date night?
