Does your trip to Gatlinburg always include a ride on the Mountain Coaster? If we may say so ourselves, this roller coaster is one of the best attractions in the area. Open year-round, rain or shine, and giving rides day and night, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a great way to get your adrenaline pumping. But that’s just the start of why so many people are sharing their favorite #CoasterMoments. What is your favorite part of this ride?
Is It the Mountain Coaster’s Silent Track That Runs in Any Weather?
The Mountain Coaster has a unique silent track that enables you to coast through the beautiful mountainside and get an up-close view of some of the area’s wildlife! Don’t worry though – the squirrels and birds are protected from the track thanks to a metal enclosure that doesn’t block your view, but keeps them away from the fast-moving cars. You can cruise around and take in the lovely foliage – we guarantee it’s the best view you’ve ever had from a roller coaster! And don’t forget the view from the ride up in the ski lift!
Is It Your Chance to Control How Fast This Roller Coaster Goes?
One of the things that many of our riders love is how you can control the speed of the Mountain Coaster! The easy-to-use brake lets you slow your ride down if you prefer a more leisurely ride, or you can ignore the brake and speed through the track at speeds up to 30 miles per hour! Ride double with a friend, or ride single to take the ride you’ve always wanted. With the many twists and turns on the track, you’ll have an exhilarating ride of surprises no matter how fast you choose to ride.
Is It the Discount on Second Rides or the Fact That You Can Double Up?
One of the best things about the Mountain Coaster is that you can ride after dark. We light the track up with thousands of fairy lights, for a magical ride that you’ll never forget. This may be the first time a roller coaster could be called romantic! If you ride during the day, keep your ticket and bring it back for a discount on your second ride in the same day. Double up for a fun date that beats another “dinner and a movie” or ride with your kids for a fun bonding moment.
