Summer is finally upon us, making it the perfect time for you and your family to get out in the fresh air and enjoy all the fun, outdoor things to do in Gatlinburg! It’s also a great time to go out with that special someone and see if the two of you set off your own fireworks. There is nothing quite like finding (or rediscovering!) that one special person — the one who sets off fireworks in your mind and heart every time you touch, hug, or kiss each other. If you really want to get the fireworks rolling, why not take a ride on one of the two-seat carts we have on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster?
This Mountain Coaster is One of the Most Popular Things to Do in Gatlinburg
Riding on the typical roller coaster means screaming down the first drop, hitting the loops at breakneck speeds, and then it’s over in just a couple of minutes. While riding this type of coaster can be a lot of fun, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster has something unique to offer that is guaranteed to make your ride special.
This mountain coaster does not fly down the rails at breakneck speeds; in fact, the top speed is no more than 30 to 35 miles per hour. And this is only if you keep your hands off the brakes all the way down. The best part of the ride is that you have brakes you can use to control how fast you make the trip down the side of the mountain. You can even stop the car for a few moments, enjoy the view and set off a few more of those “special fireworks” in your mind.
More Than Just a Day Ride
While going for a ride on the mountain coaster is a fantastic experience during the day, you just can’t beat a night ride. Once you pay for a day ride ticket, your night ride ticket will only cost you $8 each. During the day, you get to look out over the Great Smoky Mountains and the many colorful meadows filled with an incredible array of wildflowers. But during the night rides, the romantic nature of the coaster really shows itself. This is one of the most romantic things to do in Gatlinburg for an evening date!
The track is lit at night with literally thousands of tiny lights; it’s a little like riding down the side of the mountain in a tunnel of light. Take your time, make it a nice long slow, romantic ride for the two of you. You can stop the car, sneak in a few kisses and a quick hug before taking off again. No matter how you look at it, there is no better way to create your own magical memories this summer.
