  • My husband and I decided we would try this ride while staying in the Pigeon Forge area. We definitely did not regret it. We would recommend it to anyone. If you go in the winter, be sure and bundle up...  more »
  • The coaster is nice and the wait was short when we visited. Only complaint is the coaster in front of us stayed on their brake, but has nothing to do with the ride itself. 
  • I am not a roller coaster fan but I enjoyed this coaster! Plan to ride it again soon! I definitely recommend you try it at least once!

  • They really deserve five stars but we were disappointed that the slide was closed due to oncoming rain. I'm sure it's for safety and we made the most of our time together at the other attractions. We brought a friend during her bachelorette weekend and it was a pretty good idea. We acted like tourists and decided that we HAVE to come back this Winter. Probably sooner. I still want to do that slide before it's cold and I expect October to be an awesome time to go.
  • It was fun until you go out over the side of the mountain & see everything below!!!!!! I bit pricy for a 6-8 min ride (3-4 up & 3-4 down). Re-rides are about half price. NO SHOES WITHOUT BACKS or you have to sit on them. WTF is that about? You don't use your feet for anything. You control your speed with your hands/arms. Check off my bucket list.
  • My husband and I really enjoyed this wonderful coaster. The view is gorgeous, as is the whole establishment. These people take great pride in their attraction and it shows. We will be coming back with family and friends at later dates. Would only recommend if you like having fun and beautiful views :)
  • The staff here were wonderful, we went mid day(at night we saw the long lines) This was my sons first ride of this type, he had a blast. We initially only were going to ride once, but on our first ride down we caught up with a another rider who was terrified, the attendant asked how our ride was, I told him good, but we had caught up with someone, he offered us another ride, which I did not expect. The second time down, it was an amazing difference, thank you Mr Attendant you made my 4yr olds day, he couldn't stop talking about it.
  • Fun fun fun! My husband & I each rode with 1 child. We all LOVED it! Great views on the way up & faster than expected on the way down! Definitely have to go while in Pigeon Forge. It is pricey though. Find the coupon in one of the books around town to save a couple bucks.
