If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind way to see the Smoky Mountains, look no further than the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster! Conveniently located on the Parkway in Gatlinburg, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster takes you on the ride of your life with surprising twists through the Appalachian mountains and trees—all making for one exciting ride down the Great Smoky Mountains!
When you ride a Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, you’re in the driver’s seat. First, you get to choose whether to ride single or with a friend. Then you pick your speed. Each mountain coaster is equipped with an individual brake handle, so you can enjoy your ride through the Great Smoky Mountains at a pace all your own. You can race down the mountains at blazing speeds or play it casual and take it all in. Either way, you control the ride, which means you control the fun!
On the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, you’ll not only get the unique experience of seeing the Smoky Mountain up close and personal, but you’ll also get to hear the sounds of nature as you ride. The specially designed track system for the coaster makes for a completely silent ride, but you don’t have to be silent while you enjoy it! And you can take your ride by day or by night—or both! The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays (it closes at 7 p.m. every other night).
As you ride, you’ll get to experience the Smokies in a way that’s not been possible before. The wide track and tubular rails of the coaster make for a super smooth ride through the mountains. No need to worry about being thrown around as you curve through the woods and down the Smoky Mountains! And each mountain coaster is fully equipped with safety harnesses and lap belts to keep all riders safe on their journey. All in all, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster makes for a smooth, comfortable ride your entire family can enjoy!
The Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster is open year-round—rain, snow, or shine. Some age and height restrictions apply. (See the attraction’s website for more details.) You do not need any special skills to operate the brakes on the mountain coaster, nor do you need to tackle a treacherous climb to the top to begin your ride. An uphill lift will take you to the top, and an exciting ride on the coaster will take you back down!
