from Rowdy Bear Mountain Adventure Park
Rowdy Bear Mountain Adventure Park is home to two amazing thrill rides including the First Mountain Glider in the world. The Glider is a suspended single rail coaster that safely soars through the treetops of Rowdy Bear Mountain. This amazing adventure combines free falling and hang gliding into a safe fun experience.

The Rowdy Bear Mountain Coaster is a gravity-propelled alpine mountain coaster that reaches speeds up to 35 mph while it winds through the woods of the Rowdy Bear Mountain. You control your speed! Our coaster carts have the latest Intelligent Distance Control System to ensure our guests have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Our track is lit up at night and these amazing rides during the day offer a completely different experience at night.

"One Hour of crazy awesome fun!"
June 2019
Wow! Purchased the One Hour Wristband for my grandkids and their friends- and what a blast!! They enjoyed riding by themselves and with their friends. We all got 8 rides! The staff was so friendly and funny and made our experience even better. We can’t wait to go back! Next time we are going to ride the Glider as well.

This is the newest of the various alpine mountain coasters in the area. The ride duration of this one is much shorter than the others if you take out tge extra long time from where you are to stop and then wait to be conveyed to the exit point. Others in the area offer a more thrilling ride.

"Such a blast"

We tried this coaster on a whim as our cabin rental provided us with a BOGO deal. This was such fun that we rode it 2 more times , once at night. The staff were all friendly and professional but a special shoutout to Brenda for the excellent conversation after our 2nd ride. Would highly recommend this event.

"Groupon buy "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We bought a groupon for the mountain coaster since we were not sure how we would like it. They can add on rides or add on their hanging coaster for a discounted price at time of arrival. We opted to the hanging coaster thing they have. The mountain coaster does not have much direction when you arrive and you climb into a car and out your seatbelt on. Then an attendant comes over to ask if you’ve been here before and goes over the rules then sends you off. You really fly if you do not hit the brakes. It was kind of scary I just admit but they assure you that it won’t come off the tracks. They take a picture of you so you can see afterwards. Next you go up to the 3rd floor for the hanging coaster. Again no direction from staff. You find a helmet and wait in line either for single or double. You step on a scale to see if they need to change the harness or not. You get strapped in and they gave you brief instructions and send you off. You really fly on that and I felt like I was a rage doll. You swing all around and before you know it your done. Surprise! Like everywhere in the area another picture and video is taken to try and sell. We really enjoyed the mountain and would love to do it again.

SUPER FUN TIME at Rowdy Bear Mountain adventure. Good deal. Lots of fun. A lot of time on slides. **NEW**. Didn’t see this last year. Our 19/21 & 24 year olds had a blast. Lots of little kids here to. Really cute”bunny slope” for tiny kids too.

We came here at night after winning free rides at Rowdy Bear’s other location in Pigeon Forge. We have been to other mtn coasters in the area and this one, although shorter (which they tell you), is definitely the fastest! It was so much fun and the staff at both locations is outstanding! We will be adding this to our “must do” list for our annual trip to the Smokies.
