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!

“A MUST DO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

This attraction is an excellent family experience! The waiting line went pretty fast, and the staff was nice. Since it was the first time riding, we were not sure what to expect, but it exceeded our expectations. It is definitely worth $15.00! The scenery is very pretty riding to the top, and the ride is a blast! I love the helix, and giggled all the way! This is now my favorite thing to do while in the Gatlinburg area. I am a travel agent, and excited to tell my customers about this fantastic attraction.

“Awesome fun for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

This ride was well worth it. 4, 6, & 9 year old daughters loved it. We did not expect it to be that much fun!

“Had a Blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

The ride was fun for the whole family. We almost did not go after reviewing the website as we did not think it would be much of a ride. However, that is not the case. There is a brake to use but we were in acceleration mode for the duration. Highly recommend.
