Looking for a rush of adrenaline? Finding enough speed in the daily grind is just about impossible with speed limits, traffic, and a never-ending to-do list. Amusement parks can get expensive and often involve more waiting to get on the rides than flying along the track. Instead, consider a totally different approach to roller coasters in the heart of Gatlinburg.
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a one-of-a-kind experience, mixing the thrills of an amusement park with the sights and sounds of the great outdoors. If your family has a need for speed, then book one of the top attractions in Gatlinburg and whiz down the mountain at speeds of more than 30 miles an hour. Ticket combos and early bird discounts offer multiple options for this thrilling outdoor adventure.
See the Smokies at a Different Speed
Many people visit the attractions in Gatlinburg as part of a trip to relax in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but with the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, you can turn up the throttle and fly down the mountainside. There is no climbing involved, either, with a lift that takes you all the way to the top. With plenty of twists and turns on the way down, you will experience the mountains like never before.
Spot something in the woods that interests you? Unlike most roller coasters, you are in complete control of your speed. Each car is separate from the others and has a set of hand-operated brakes, so if you see wildlife or just want a moment to enjoy the peace and quiet, just apply the brake. This setup is perfect for a family that likes to go at different speeds. Send the full throttle members down in a single or double car and then reserve a space for a more leisurely ride for those who like to take it easy.
Enjoy the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster All Day Long
There are multiple ticket options for the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster to maximize your visit. There are, of course, tickets for single rides, but families can take advantage of the parent/child combo for kids up to age eight. Are all children grown? The ‘Double Rider’ is designed for two adults and all of these options offer an early bird discount to everyone who books online!
If your inner speed demon cannot get enough, a second trip on the coaster comes at a discount rate. There is no need to limit yourself to two rides, however, as the All Day Pass offers unlimited rides all day long, so come get your adrenaline going in the morning with a trip or two, stretch your legs and grab lunch, then come back to ride again.
Make sure to save time for a night ride, when the brakes come off and you hurtle down the mountainside in and out of sparkling lights and total darkness. Book one of the best attractions in Gatlinburg and get your heart racing in anticipation!
