Participating in a group outing is an opportunity to stretch yourself, to connect with new and old friends, colleagues, and family, and to have fun seeing and doing things you might not do on your own. However, planning a group outing presents an entirely different set of circumstances. How do you please as many people as possible, while keeping to a schedule and coming in under budget?
Here’s one idea: surprise everyone with a ride on Tennessee’s coolest roller coaster, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster!
The Mountain Coaster Fits In Your Group’s Schedule
Want to get everyone pumped first thing in the morning? No problem! The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is open at 10 a.m. every day of the week. Have some time to kill before dinner? This roller coaster is guaranteed to whet everyone’s appetites and give each rider a thrilling trip through the wilderness of the Smokies.
And, after a long day together, whether you’re a team of volunteers, a group on a corporate retreat, or a family just kicking back, what’s better than a chance to get out in nature and unwind a little? The roller coaster is open until 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, so whenever you’ve got an hour to spare, an exciting trip down the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster awaits your group.
The Mountain Coaster is Budget-Friendly Fun
If you’re concerned about keeping things affordable, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a great choice. Single tickets are $16, and two riders riding together save $5 on admission, while a parent/child combo saves $8. An additional ride on the same day is only $8 per person, so if you know you’ve got some real thrill-seekers in your party, you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank for a second go-round. Groups of a certain size also qualify for group rates, so make sure to call and see if you’re eligible!
No need to hire a professional photographer, either – high-quality snapshots of each rider are taken during the roller coaster experience, and are available for only $11 for the first photo, and $8 for any additional photos.
The Mountain Coaster Has a Little Something for Everyone
Everyone knows that even within the most close-knit groups, no two people are alike. For the speed demons in your party, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is the fastest mountain coaster in Tennessee. For those who move at their own pace, well, each car in this roller coaster has its own brake, and each rider can go at the speed they like.
At top speed, you feel those Smoky Mountain breezes roaring past, and at slower speeds, you can get a close look at all of the natural beauty that surrounds this unbeatable attraction. For groups just getting to know each other, this is the perfect icebreaker. Sure, there may not be much time for conversation on the coaster, but afterwards… Wow! You’ll be swapping your experiences from the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster long after the ride is over.
