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

Different experience from start to finish, if you enjoy thrill rides, you'll like this!!! My husband and I tried this for the first time a week ago and we wish we had bought two tickets apiece.

It was a lot of fun my family all loved it, but as everything else in this area you pay dearly for less than 10 minutes of thrill. The family pass helped it be more affordable than some of the other nearby activities, so compared to them it was a good value. Would have loved to ride it again but... More

A little pricy but the excitement builds as they pull you up the hill then you control the type of ride you want by going fast and zipping into turns or slow and enjoying the surroundings its up to you and it is cool!!!!!!!

This was a fun stop. It's a bit pricey at $15/person given the relatively short duration of the ride, but it was unique and we're glad we did it. They have a display of pamphlets for local attractions on the sidewalk down from the ticket window. Be sure to grab a flyer for the coaster to get a discount (I... More

Rode the ride with my nephew and enjoyed it . We went on roller coasters the day before, so compared to that, not as much thrilling fun, however the alpine coaster was still fun

We did this after dinner at night with another couple as a date night! It was so much fun! Part of it was lit and the rest was dark! Really fun but probably more fun at night!

My 9 year old and I went full speed ahead down the mountain. We didn't think it was scary or too fast although we love a good roller coaster. We had a great time and laughed the whole way. We used a coupon and thought it was well worth the $. A great experience. My little guy wanted the t-shirt,... More
