  • Definitely fun. My wife and I went here and rode this, and I would definitely recommend it. First part is fairly relaxing, nice, slower ride up the mountain; the second part is definitely faster. If you have issues with speed or fast turns, then this might not be the thing for you. But if you enjoy those things then I definitely suggest it. I also suggest doing this at night. During the day is nice, but at night is great. And if you go once, then you get a discount for the next time, almost half off.
  • If you're looking for the best Alpine coaster, look no further. My wife and I visited here and were shocked at how awesome the ride was. Short line, very fair price and they even gave the option to come back for a discounted ride ... I think 50% of the original ticket cost. The ride up took a few minutes, the way down seemed like 5+ minutes. A ton of fun! Highly recommend!
  • Great place to visit. The coaster was awesome. The kids loved it. You can go full throttle down the track or slow it down to a speed you are comfortable with. The faculty explains the controls to you very well. Once you do it the first time you will definitely want to ride again.
  • I didn't know quite what to expect and it turned out to be a delightful surprise! Alpine Coasters are a fun, low-tech roller coaster where YOU can control how fast you go. Pricing is reasonable and if you save your receipt, you can come back later on the same day and coast again at a reduced rate....neat idea if you do it in the morning then come back in the evening. Will definitely do this again if I visit this area again.
  • Cool place to stop when visiting Pigeon Forge, TN.! The night time coaster was awesome with the whole ride lite up. Ride is very fast and the speed is controlled by you somewhat. The ride up is just as fun as the ride down the mountain. We highly recommend this ride for everyone! There is plenty of parking with NO fee for parking. The ride fee is great for the price just $16 per person. No cameras are allowed on the ride so take your pics before or after the ride. We assure you that your ride will be fun!
