The Most Unique Gatlinburg Roller Coaster Around
This Gatlinburg roller coaster is the very first Mountain Coaster in the Smokies, offering you an amazing look at the natural wildlife as you zip through on the silent track. The special design means that you’ll get to see and hear the birds, squirrels, and other critters hiding in and around the wooded area. There’s something else unique about the Gatlinburg roller coaster: you are in control of the driving! Control the speed so that you can take in the views on your own terms, or take a ride on the wild side as fast as you want.
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is open all year long in all weathers, and all kids who are over three and above 38 inches can ride. You can enjoy the views during the day, or take a cool roller coaster ride at night with the lit track making the Gatlinburg views look magical.
The Special Track is the Highlight of Your Ride
In addition to being totally silent, the track offers tons of steep hills, twists, turns, and surprises so that you get the full experience of being on a roller coaster. And as a bonus, there’s no need to walk up our incline to get on the ride. Enjoy a lift and the view while our lift system takes you to the top, and then choose a single or double car to ride back down.
You’ll experience perfect straightaways to help you build up speed, a variety of 360 degree turns that are perfect for adventurous souls who want to feel the wind whipping by, and more. Bring your camera – or better yet, a GoPro – and prepare for the ride of a lifetime.
