“No Brake” Nights
If you’re really looking for a fun ride, you’ll want to check out the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster on “no brake” nights. It’s just what it sounds like – a ride through the dark where you’re encouraged to keep your hand off the brake. You can touch the brake if you want but you probably won’t. Or maybe you’ll do it once, but then you’ll force yourself to stop because other riders are calling you out for being a wuss!
If you do touch the brake, that’s okay – you can control your speed on the coaster – that’s one of the most fun aspects of this ride. “No Brake’ nights just add to the fun and give you a new perspective as you barrel down the mountain!
Climbing the Mountain
One of the most exciting things about this Gatlinburg roller coaster is the slow, long climb up the mountain. If you do it at night, it will be pitch-black and you’ll feel as though you’re far away from everything. There will be lights along the trail, but you’ll still feel so very isolated. If you’re riding with a loved one, this can actually be very romantic!
Along your Gatlinburg roller coaster ride, you’ll go up, and then down, and feel totally, wonderfully out of control! You’ll go through straights and turns, and experience a lot of g-force along the way. So, having done it once, will you do the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster again? It’s up to you. A lot of people ride the coaster, and can’t wait to do it again, in between finding lots of other fun things to do in Gatlinburg. It’s an amazing ride, and did you know that you can get a discount on a second, same-day ride with your first ride ticket? Yes!
