My girls found the Alpine Coaster on Trip Advisor prior to visiting Pigeon Forge. It was all that they were really requesting while in town so we did it!. I had no idea this would turn out to be a mini roller coaster. LOL The ride up was scenic and it was great for the building anticipation. But the ride down was CRAZY! It was faster than I expected even though I have read the website well. It was exciting, fun, and beautiful to view the scenery from above. Both of my girl rode alone (ages 10-12) but they are slight daredevils. It was a great experience!! Would definitely recommend it!
