Super fun! It’s a bit pricey, but the experience is unique and the second ride is half off (which we look advantage of). The line was long (it was New Year’s Eve when we visited) but it moved fast, we waited about 30 minutes both times. The ride is smooth, and you cam control the speed which is great for younger kids who might be scared. The weight limit is 370 (for both riders combined), and that goes down to 330 if the track is wet. My teenager loved it and my 10 year old, who is a bit nervous of coasters, really enjoyed riding it with me. Would definitely do it again!

The Georgia Mountain Coaster was a smooth ride and really fun. Give folks in front of you some time to make it down the track, because you will catch them quickly and the braking will automatically slow you down. a really safe feature if you have kids.

This roller coaster was very unique and so much fun! We visited in early July and it wasn’t very crowded. We were glad to see that they were following and encouraging social distancing, sanitizing carts and all employees wearing masks and gloves. As far as the ride, it is very unique since you can control the speed. My teenager was able to ride alone and had a blast. My youngest rode with me and loved it as well. We rode twice, with the half off discount on the second ride. Two tips: if you or anyone in your party has long hair, you’ll be asked to put it up in a bun so bring a hair tie. Also, if traveling with a dog, one member of your party can wait in the parking area with the dog on a leash while the others ride (dogs aren’t allowed in the building). The person waiting can still see you as you approach the end of the ride. I recommend this ride, especially if traveling with older kids and teenagers.

It's always amazing to me how they can find time to change the price in their computer systems and on signs around the place but they never get round to updating the website where most visitors will look first before they arrive. Now, it's only a $1 increase per ticket I know but with a family on a budget with repeat options that adds up. Shame on you for that low tactic.

The ride itself was enjoyable and the kids enjoyed it. No wait but certainly overpriced all things considered. Would not do it again.

The Georgia Mountain Coaster is very similar to the one in Pigeon Forge - by Goats on the Roof. It was a lot of fun. It was over $60 for 2 adults and 2 kids and then half price for second time around. We all enjoyed it and will probably do it again next time we’re in Helen.

When planning our visit to Helen (an adorable town by the way) I wanted to include something fun for our teens and my adult daughter.

They loved this coaster and rode it twice. The second time my daughter was disappointed because the person in front of her was scared and going super slow so she really had to slow down so as not to run into them.

I didn't ride it but looking back wish I had because you do control your own speed and it seemed pretty fun. My daughter's loved it and thought it was the highlight of their trip to Helen.

The owners were wiping down the coaster after every person and they had hand sanitizer that you could use before getting on. Everyone we saw was wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart so it was COVID safe as well.

Our family of 4 (with a 3 year old and a 14 year old) absolutely LOVED this ride. Ride is about 1 1/2 mins, but is so enjoyable. The ride is a little pricey for the short trip, but a second ride is half price. We did get lucky and was able to get off our first ride and walk straight back and ride again with no wait. Will definitely visit again. Price was worth our smiling faces afterwards!

My daughter is a thrill junkie like her dad. She loves the mountain coaster which is directly across from our hotel (Heledorf River Inn). You can go as fast or slow as you want (we always go fast). It goes up and down through the mountain (beautiful views) and they even give you a discounted rate if you decide to go again that day. We always doing during the day and then again at night. Awesome family adventure!

Great ride! Ride is about 4 min long, if getting the second ride for 1/2 price you will have to get off and go back through the line. I would love to save the second ride for night time on the next visit. Military discount is for the member only. No purses or bags on the ride.

This is well worth doing- I promise. It is so different as it uses kinetic energy to glide down the hill. So smooth and quick that you actually get to enjoy the scenery on the way down. I’m 52 and my husband is 57 with back issues and we both LOVED it. Highly recommend to anyone!
