The Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster is the longest downhill ride in the United States,with over 1 mile of track, so if you are looking for an unforgettable experience in your vacation here in the Great Smoky mountains, this is a must do! The vehicles are designed to carry two visitors in comfort but can be handled easily by one alone. The riders are in control of the velocity (up to 27 mph) and this gives them a unique hands-on experience! Rain, snow or sunshine no problem - the excellent braking effect is unchanged so you can ride year-round! Tickets and packages are now available, age restrictions may apply, parents may need to ride with small children. The all new Uber ride is HERE! « less

Fun ride from the time you sit down as the cable pulls you up the side of the mountain. When you reach the top its "hammer down" time and it feels like you are flying down the mountain.

Great experience in Pigeon Forge, look for coupons and don't use the brakes to get the best effect. Will do it again every time we go.

This is a fun attraction. It is expensive. It doesn't last long but while it is going it is really a lot of fun. I would love to do it again.

We went today and had fun ride down the hill! This is a nice change from the go-karts and from an all day venture to the amusement park. The only suggestion that I have for the owners would be snap shots down the hill. There are many cameras for safety purposes that could be used for snapshots. I would have... More

We went to the coaster early in the morning on Sunday and the line wasn't very long so that helped. It is definitely an experience you can't get other places, but it was not big thrills like an actual roller coaster. It's a novelty and the kids love it. However, if you're looking for big thrills, know that you're riding... More

Good ride! Could have been a little bit faster, but this was our second time to ride, and we still loved it! Wish they would take pictures of you somewhere on the ride! Great fun!

Six of us arrived to buy tickets. There was a discount for groups so we were paying together. I was used to saying "eight tickets please" at all the other attractions but today it was just the six of us. I stood at the window and asked for eight tickets. She said "that'll be eighty-eight dollars". I handed her a... More

Stopped in here to check out the coaster. The staff assured me that it was not scary. After watching it for a few minutes, I decided to give it a try. It is basically like a nature ride for the first half of it. You just sit there & ride the cart up the hill. At the top, you push... More
