Description:

Come Ride the Hill and Feel the Thrill! The Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster...

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. Our track has thousands of colored LED lights so you can experience our awesome Night Rides! The great "Über Ride" is HERE!

This unique attraction is tame enough for all ages, but exciting enough for even the biggest thrill-seeker. Ride at night for the full experience. What a rush to zoom down a mountainside enjoying the refreshing breeze, the wooded scenery, and the colorful lights! This is a must-do! My family has enjoyed repeated visits and will go again!

What an awesome experience! We had such a wonderful time riding this coaster. With speeds up to 27mph, it was a pure adrenaline rush! WE RODE IT TWICE! 2nd time was half price!

This is a must when in Pigeon Forge. Me and the grandkids rode three times in one day. We rode during day but it looks like a blast at night all lit up.

We first saw the coaster all lit up at night but waited to ride during the day. The wait was a bit but worth it. Super fast and fun.

We rode this coaster twice in one day. After our first ride, at $26 for 2 people. They offered us a second ride at $8 per person. It's very exciting, and good for anyone who likes adrenaline and coasters.

This place is just awesome, my wife and I came here because it looked like fun, and it sure was. We had a blast riding the coasters down the mountain. The first time we came was at night and the lights were really nice to see with all the different colors and designs. We came back again the next day... More

Great deal for the price and you could return same day for a cheaper rate. Not overly scary for the young rider or those afraid of heights. I do believe they have restrictions on heights to ride alone.

Our rides must be 38" and 3 yrs old to ride with someone 16 yrs or older and 56" to ride alone. Thanks for the great review, we appreciate your business. More
