The Fine Print
About Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster
If you listen closely enough while driving past Wears Valley Road in Pigeon Forge, you might hear the faint whir of a single alpine coaster car whizzing by. It's the Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, the longest downhill ride in the United States. Throughout the course of over one mile, one or two riders take the reigns and control the speed, unlike on a traditional coaster. That means guests can tear through the Smoky Mountain forests like Big Foot at speeds of up to roughly 30 miles per hour. For intrepid adventure seekers, the roller coaster is open day and night, rain or shine, all year-round.
