Spring is definitely here, and for many people in Gatlinburg, that means a lot of busy activities. From graduations to shifting to summer working hours, everyone’s under a ton of pressure this spring. Why not fling it all off with the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster? Day or night, rain or shine, this is one of the best attractions in Gatlinburg for blowing off steam your way. Here’s why:
You Get to Control the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster
Sometimes the whirlwind of spring can seem like you are being pulled along by everything else. On the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, you can control your ride. Choose to ride with a friend, or go solo down the track. You control the speed – ignore the brake to take the twists and turns at up to 35 miles per hour, or use the brake to cruise along and take in the sights. The beautiful spring time mountain side is filled with blooming life, and the totally silent track means you may even get to see some wildlife watching you curiously. No special skills or knowledge are needed to control the cars – even those who have never driven can easily control the speed at the Mountain Coaster!
You Don’t Have to Walk Up to the Mountain Coaster
We know you’re tired after your busy week. Ride the uphill lift system to the top of the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, and then take the coaster back down! You don’t have to walk to get to one of the best attractions in Gatlinburg. This also makes it easy to bring anyone along for a fun ride, regardless of their fitness level or ability. Our cars all have safety harnesses and lap belts, and children are invited to ride as well! Kids over 56” can ride solo if they wish, and any child over the age of three, and over 36”, can ride with a parent.
Spring Nights Are Full of Possibility at the Mountain Coaster
Did you know you can take a Mountain Coaster ride in the dark? It’s true! This attraction stays open past sunset, and the track is lit with thousands of tiny sparkling lights. As you race through the spring evening, you’ll feel like you are riding a coaster through a magic tunnel, a romantic cavern, or an enchanted forest! Make it a date night for something fun and unique, or just enjoy treating yourself. Make sure you bundle up – spring nights can be chilly here in Gatlinburg!

As you ride along the track, our cameras will take a commemorative photo that you can later choose to purchase to remember your fun spring break day! But we also welcome and encourage you to take photos with your GoPro, your camera, your phone, or anything else.
