Ride the Hill

They feature all-weather coaster rides and their very popular illuminated night rides.  Each ride down the mountain on the coaster generally lasts 7-8 minutes.


Feel the Thrill

If you’re new to Alpine Coasters, it is a molded plastic sled with a back and roll bar mounted to a metal track. The sled is designed to carry one or two people safely up the hill. The track assist will then let go and the riders take a gravity propelled ride down-hill along the track.

Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster’s track takes you on a winding ride through the forest and hills of the Great Smoky Mountains where you can reach speeds up to 27 miles per hour. Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster lets you control your speed with hand brakes, allowing you to ride at a comfortable speed or lets you run the track at full speed for the best thrill.
