The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is a unique, family-friendly thrill ride that puts you in the driver’s seat, literally! It curves and winds through the woods and down the mountain. With its unique track and brake system, you control your speed. Our specially designed wide track and tubular rails guarantee optimal stability in curves and deliver a smooth, comfortable ride experience every time.
Who can ride?
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is fun for all ages, no special skills are required. Bring the entire family and discover the Great Smoky Mountains in a whole new way. Riders can enjoy the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster alone or with a friend. Each coaster car is built for single or double riders and is equipped with safety harnesses and lap belts.
How do I get to the top?
No Uphill Walking Required! Instead, our uphill lift system will carry you to the top, just sit back and enjoy the view. Then, once you reach the top, away you go down the mountain in your coaster car (single or double) with individual speed controls that let you set your speed. The track carries you up and over the forest floor with lots of twists, curves and surprises. Remember, the coaster is silent, but you don’t have to be!
