from The Runaway Mountain Coaster
The Runaway Branson Mountain Coaster is the first & longest alpine mountain coaster in Branson and the Ozarks.

This Alpine coaster is one of the most talked-about thrill rides in town with a 5-star rating on TripAdvisor and numerous Best of Branson accolades! It is also the foundation of the area’s newest outdoor attraction park, the Branson Mountain Adventure Park. Mountain coasters are a relatively new attraction in America and we’re pleased to bring one of the best to the heart of the Midwest.

Our Branson Mountain Coaster features more family-friendly thrills in town – more dips, more turns, more zigs and zags, and more ups and downs. A true American-made experience, the Branson Mountain Coaster races down the Ozark hillside weaving in and around trees, through nature, and soars high over a creek leaving you breathless and ready to Runaway again!

"Pretty Great Until..."
August 2018
This was my first trip on the coaster. The thrill of trekking.up the beautiful mountainside by way of train/pasenger car was pretty great. Until coming back to pay for our second ride was not a good experience at all. After arriving within about 30 minutes of closing, a ride that I thought would take about 15 mins, took much longer for a situation that could have been prevented.
