High Speed/Worth the Wait Mountain Coaster
Nov 2020 • Family
Excellent coaster! Very fun and fast. The wait was not nearly as long as they told us it would be...they told us 2 hours and we ended up only waiting about 45 minutes. The ride up the hill was slow and meant to be a bit scenic, however we rode at night, and there was little lighting in the trees other than the track being lit. The downhill was fast but but long enough to enjoy the ride, in addition, the carts have two handles to allow for personal control over braking, however everyone in our group rode it wide open to really get the “feel” of the ride. Worth the wait, but maybe watch the crowds to catch a short line if possible when up at Ober Gatlinburg to avoid a multi-hour wait. The don’t build those long ride queues for nothing.

Fast long coaster
Sep 2020 • Solo
There are a lot of mountain coasters in the Gatlinburg Pigeon Forge area. I have ridden 5 so far and this one is one of the top 2. Ober Gatlinburg has a lot to do and this is a nice addition. The best way up is the beautiful tram ride up, but we chose to drive up. The coaster is long at over 2700 feet with a steep drop which makes it fast. It is bumpy compared to other coasters, so expect a bit of teeth rattling. Like all coasters you can slow it with the hand brakes, but wheres the fun in that. Just push them all the way down and enjoy the thrill.

Fun, fast, first time can be a nail biter!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Not being a roller coaster type of girl, I thought I’d give it a try. The cars are more comfortable than I expected, and are quite roomy.
The ride up the hill is STRAIGHT UP THE HILL and a nice opportunity to sit back and get accustomed to the carriage. There is a sharp 180 at the top and then down you go.
Being on the ground, 25 mph seems much faster than I expected and the track really leaned in on the curves. It was a pretty smooth ride and the brakes are extremely responsive.
The corkscrew was thrilling, and I’d not use the brakes as much on our next visit.
If you don’t use the brakes, the ride down is about 60 seconds.

I didn’t need a locker for my purse, but it was secured with me under the seatbelt.

Good for all ages and all body types. Cars were easy to enter and exit. They weigh everyone to ensure riders are not over 300# - single or double riders.

The best coaster! We've tried others, but they were not as great as this one, so we had to come back!

Cool Ride
May 2020
My kids loved this coaster. It was a bit jerky but the coaster was easy to control. A bit pricey compared to other coasters in the area.

Rip off
Oct 2019 • Couples
Biggest rip off. Waited 1/2 hr in line to get into a mountain coaster that we were jammed into like sardines. Forget seeing a thing. Had to pay $8 for parking over and above our ticket price and then we get up to the top and there is nothing to do up there except pay money to do other useless stuff. Save your money and drive yourself up. And there is not much of a view from the top. Save your money for other stuff

Goes fast, is fun
Aug 2019
This coaster is ok even if you don't like scary rides (I don't, and I was ok with this). Enjoyed going up and being in the woods and then the ride down was a bit bumpy and went fast, but you can control your own speed with the brakes. Easy entertainment for adults and kids.

BEST VIEWS AROUND!
Aug 2019 • Family
We went for the Gorgeous views, and we definitely got it! We decided to try a few activities, as well. I'll put in my 2 cents beliw.

The summer tubing was mediocre at best, only because you only get 2 trips down a very short run. Purchasing additional runs is pricey for what you actually get.

The mountain coaster was really fun, however, we had an incredibly difficult time understanding the 2 guys at the top when they were trying to explain the directions to us. The language barrier is NOT acceptable when they are the ones trying to explain rules to myself and 3 kids. We really had no idea what they were saying.

The alpine coaster was very fun! Funny workers that were very personable.

We had a great time in the maze and at mini golf. We are a pretty competitive family, so we have a great time doing these type of activities.

The wildlife area is small, but interesting for kids. Mine are 15, 10, 9. Clean overall and well set up.

Overall, the summer season isn't a real happening place. The activities aren't decently fun, and they help pass the time. I'm sure it is a lot more fun during the winter season.

But, if you want the views and the amazing ride up to the very top.....THIS is your place!

Oh. P.s. we also at at the restaurant up stairs, and it was delicious. Our waitress was phenomenal!
