My son had so much, fun feeding the goats on the roof.
We both road the coasters, it was really fast and fun.
And the gift shop, where we purchase the food to feed the goats had alot of fun snacks to take home.
Thanks Ryan, for helping us with purchasing tickets to ride the coatster.

Tip: You can control the speed at which you travel but it is shorter than others and will be over before you know it. You will want to do another and another ride.

"Fun but doesn't last long"
July 2018
This was alot of fun! The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because it felt like it was over so fast. You can control the speed of your cart by the handles which is a good thing if you don't want to go super fast. I'd do it again but for 6 of us the price was kinda steep for the experience .

"Awesome view!"
June 2018
This coaster was a mile long with fantastic views. Love that you can control your speed as you ride so you can enjoy the view as well as the fun of the ride. The shop was interesting and the goats a quirky addition-but fun. Staff were not very friendly however so I was compelled to ride a second time.

My 3-year old rode twice with her father and had a blast. Would highly recommend. Speed is controlled by the rider, so it can be fast or slow, depending on your preference. Masks were required, which we appreciated. Husband had never done a ride like this and he also said it was fun. It was $15 for the adult, and $5 for the kid. The re-ride is $5 each, so no savings for the kiddo on that one. I also appreciate that the ticket woman did not laugh at the incredible tantrum my 1-year old threw when we did not let him ride (he did not meet the minimum age or height.)

My boyfriend and I visited on a Saturday evening at 7 pm, it was still light outside. We had no wait time and decided to ride together. You can choose to ride by yourself if you like. Tickets are $15 per person but you can use your ticket stub to ride again for only $5 each! It took about 7-8 minutes to get from loading onto the mountain coaster to being done with the ride. You control how fast you go, personally we enjoyed going full speed. So exhilarating! We loved it so much we decided to come back and ride at night time when the track is lit up with lights. We returned around 10:30 and just for the record, the mountain coasters are much more popular at night time than during the day. It was much busier but only about a 15 minute wait! The best part was getting to see the goats. They are literally on the roof. You can buy food to feed them or use the bike mechanism to send them food to the roof. There is also a very large gift shop with lots of neat Knick knacks. We thoroughly enjoyed this coaster and will be back the next time we visit the Smokies! Great activity day or night for adults or children, families or couples!
