Come Ride the Hill and Feel the Thrill! The Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster is the longest downhill ride in the United States, with over 1 mile of track. So if you are looking for an unforgettable experience in your vacation here in the Great Smoky mountains, this is a must do! The vehicles are designed to carry two visitors in comfort but can be handled easily by one alone. The riders are in control of the velocity (up to 27 mph) and this gives them a unique hands-on experience! Rain, snow or sunshine, no problem - the excellent braking effect is unchanged so you can ride year-round! Tickets and packages are now available, age restrictions may apply, parents may need to ride with small children. Our track has thousands of colored LED lights so you can experience our awesome Night Rides! The great "Über Ride" is HERE!

Had a great time and was able to find a coupon for $2 off a person at our hotel. Ride attendant gave clear instructions which was good. The ride up was peaceful the ride down was fast. Will be doing this again.

Had an awesome time here! There are coupons all around the area for a couple bucks off! They also have deals for additional rides! I am pretty sure this is the longest coaster in the area so try it out!

The ride is about 7-8 minutes, depending on your speed on the way down, as you control the hand brakes.
