Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
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 on 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!

Great ride. New clean. Employees could've been more courteous. Ride will only let u get to 30 mph but could handle more.

My husband and I were looking for something out of the ordinary to do for fun and decided on the alpine coaster. My only regret was riding in the same cart as him he wanted to go faster than my comfort level, I really enjoyed it though and next time I will be sure to get my own cart so I can go at my own speed. I really also liked that kids can ride with an adult if they are 3 and up and to get their own cart they need to be 56 inches (I think).All of my kids could ride this and no one would be left out!!

This was so fun, you go up the mountain and then come racing down at your own speed. The view was gorgeous and the ride down was quite the thrill, especially since you could go at your own pace, but not stop. I would definitely do this again.

The newest attraction in PF. We loved it on a beautiful fall day taking in the sights and smells of the Smoky Mountains in the fall...it doesn't get any better! The ride was exciting and long enough and very safe! Be sure to put this on your to do list!

Was close to our hotel and had good reviews so we decided to try it out. Was truly a fun exhilarating ride and took advantage of the discount rate to ride multiple times. Very friendly staff that made it a safe but exciting experience. Will definitely go back next visit to this area
