"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.

"Great Mountain Coaster!"

The mountain coaster is very fun, and feels like the fastest one in the Gatlinburg area. As with other mountain coasters, the views you get on this one are great! You get two rides with one ticket purchase. You will definitely want to ride it again! The staff were very helpful and polite to us during our visit, which always makes the experience better. We would ride it again on our next trip for sure!

Our family loved this coaster! We rode 3 times as part of a package. You can control your speed by hand braking if you wish. This ride was super smooth and so fun! Next time we'll have to try the glider as well.

We rode the coaster at two different times in the same day. In the afternoon my husband, son, and I had a great time On the mountain coaster and the staff was awesome. They said if you thought this was fun, you have to ride at night. Well we did and man it didn’t disappoint. We got the unlimited pass for night and got in 7-8 rides. It was so awesome and the staff was great, with some remembering us from earlier. Even stayed past closing time to honor our full hour. Thank you for a memorable last night in Gatlinburg and we’ll see you again! Oh and my son did the cave. My husband almost got stuck but my son did it twice!!
