Owner description: Come Ride the Hill and Feel the Thrill! 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!

WOW ...... whether snow or rain or cold .... the ORIGINAL coaster of the smokies has outdone the followers and shown then why we prefer the Smoky Mtn Alpine Coaster. They have now upped the game and added windshields to the sleds so that you can now ride in the rain or snow. How cool is this!!!!! It really does... More

We took the kids and grandparents and loved it! Look for coupons though! They said there were coupons around, but I didn't find any. We got there when it opened and got right in! We hate waiting in line!

This attraction is a must-do for our family now! Reasonable price, although I think they should offer a package deal of $30/3 rides. The ride itself takes you up and around the mountain like you've never been before. Sit back and enjoy the approx 5 min ride to the top, then hang on to your socks as you twist and... More

It was a fun experience for anyone!! You control the speed so it is great for children or someone who loves a thrill. It was so much fun we went back and did it again that night to see the night time view.

Found this place last year and had to come back this year as well. Kids had a blast. Enjoyed the thrill of zipping down the mountain. With more coaster competition coming to the area, hopefully the price will drop some or they will offer a all day or weekend pass for repeat riders.

The ride is faster than you think but you'll never feel unsafe. Also, there are brakes if you want to slow down. We enjoyed every second of it and wanted to ride again but just ran out of time unfortunately.

Had been on another mtn coaster and this one was much, much faster and longer. Line was long, but moved pretty fast. I would say do not hit the brakes and let it go. That is the best way to feel the full effect. We watched little kids love this ride also. When in area again, will definitely come back.... More
