Have you decided where you are going on your honeymoon? If not, you might want to consider spending it in Gatlinburg, TN. We have so many things to do in Gatlinburg that you could spend far more than just a few days here. Enjoy the hospitality of the locals along with amazing foods, unbelievable scenery, and of course the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster. But why would anyone want to spend their honeymoon visiting a mountain coaster when there are so many other things to do in Gatlinburg?
There are many reasons why taking a romantic honeymoon ride on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster should be on your honeymoon checklist. To start with, this roller coaster is unlike any you are likely to have come across. It does not require a long climb up while you listen to the ratchet locks clacking into place as the chain drive takes you to top. Instead, the cars are already at the top waiting for you to strap in and go for a quiet ride down the mountainside.
“Wanna Go for a Ride” on the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster?
There are single seat cars and of course, for the newlyweds (and others), there are plenty of two-seat cars. The ride is virtually silent and takes you through some of the most amazing scenery the area has to show you as your car takes you down the side of the mountain. Enjoy views of the Great Smoky Mountains, including meadows that are covered in an amazing carpet of flowers all summer long.
You can go as fast or slow as you want, and even stop in the middle of the track to take pictures and spend a moment or two taking in the scenery and sharing this moment with each other. If you prefer to go fast, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster can reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour as the scenery goes flying by.
Night Time is the Right Time to Go for a Romantic Ride
At night, the track is illuminated by thousands of tiny lights, creating one of the most romantic ways to spend an evening with your loved one. There has never been a better way to enjoy a few precious minutes together. The scenery takes on a completely new look when the sun goes down. You may even see a few of our shyer nocturnal creatures as they wander in the forests that run right up to the tracks.
The best part is, if you buy a full-price ticket during the day, you will receive a discount on all subsequent rides. So, keep coming back as many times as you want during the day and evening. Seal your love with a kiss as you come to a stop on your ride, chase the moon, and have a blast at the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, one of the most romantic things to do in Gatlinburg and the surrounding area. One ride down this mountain coaster is enough to get you hooked. You may find yourself coming back time and again to enjoy both the coaster and the memories.
