Attractions in Gatlinburg Make New Year’s Even More Fun
Gatlinburg makes for a great New Year’s getaway, with great amusements, dining, and winter sports. On the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, you can combine the speed of skiing with the enjoyment of the great outdoors and descend a mountain in your own individual cart.
Our coaster works solely by the force of gravity, which means there are no lift chains necessary and we send each carriage down by itself. This works to your advantage over a conventional roller coaster as you get to enjoy the ride by yourself or snuggled together with your sweetheart. There are no cables or machinery, so your descent is completely silent, except, of course, for your screams!
Start or End Your Year with a Thrill
Plan to start your New Year on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster or make it a part of your New Year’s Eve celebrations. We are open until 9 p.m. that night and our No-Brakes Night Rides are especially thrilling!
At night, the brakes are off are the lights are on. We hang twinkling lights above the tracks and, at full speed, you descend through tubes of light into total darkness in a cycle as you plummet downhill. Talk about a way to get your heart racing to end (or start) the year!
Bring a Friend to the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster and Save on Tickets
Make it a family trip to the attractions in Gatlinburg or get your friends together to celebrate New Year’s and save on combination tickets. In addition to single rides, we offer ticket bundles for two adults or an adult and child and, if you book them online beforehand, you can save 20 percent.
If you think you might need more than one ride to really get your blood pumping or conquer your fears, a second ride is only eight dollars. Plan ahead and purchase a ticket for unlimited rides for an hour or a day, though, and satiate your need for speed.
We have a lift system to send you to the start, so the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster saves you the strain of mountain climbing. The amazing views from the top will make you feel like you’ve summited a peak and, if the Smokies do not take your breath away, the ride downhill will!
