We had a great time at the Rocky Top mountain coaster. This was our first one so no comparison available, but the kids loved it. The area was very clean, nice restrooms available. We would definitely return.

Most fun we’ve ever had waiting in an attraction line. The employees were dressed in costume, scaring patrons while waiting. It was a riot and very family friendly. Coaster itself was so thrilling. I want to say it was a good 8-10 minute ride. We went after dark which added to the spookiness. Would love to see during daylight next time. Highly recommend!

This was absolutely the best Alpine Coaster stop I’ve been on. There’s way more then what you see out front. This place goes way way back and has continuous climbs to get to the top. My Daughter (13) and Nephew (10) absolutely loved it, as did I (46). We were just here in October 2020 and there were Halloween decorations all over the mountain side. Great job y’all perfect family adventure for kids, teens and adult kids like me.

We waited until dark to go so the course was light up. They had Halloween decorations up everywhere including the corse. The staff was great to interact with and made sure you were having a good time. Wait time was not bad! Pulling you up the hill you cad cool things to look at and going down the hill was a blast! Reasonably price and would definitely go back!!
