My thoughts on Alpine Coasters in the Smokies! And some savings, too!

This post may contain sponsored or affiliate links.

Next week is Mardi Gras and I know that lots of you are headed to my happy place! GATLINBURG! I won’t be there this year, but I am counting down the days until Easter! As you know, we do a lot of hiking and exploring. But, we do sprinkle in the touristy stuff to keep the littles happy. These coasters are one of our favorites!

My kids absolutely love these alpine coasters and we have ridden 4 of them, now!

Here are some brief thoughts (and savings) to help you decide which one you want to try!

****The coupon code mentioned is good for 3 different purchases. You cannot get the deal off 2 purchases at the same time. So, if you want 2 of the same deal, you need to buy them one at a time. Then come back to the link and do it again. THE CODE for extra savings EXPIRES MARCH 1, 2019. DO NOT WAIT!

GOATS ON THE ROOF – This is our current favorite. It is located on Wears Valley Road in Pigeon Forge. We have ridden this coaster at least 3 times. It is a good length of time and track. There is a lengthy lift that takes you to the top and the entire ride is several minutes long. It is smooth and has great views!

One time, we ended up riding AT NIGHT! Even MORE AWESOME!
Here’s a quick sample of the lift hill that I took in 2016!

Right now, you can save by buying THIS DEAL for two riders.

**This one expires 150 days after purchase, which puts us at late July!


ROWDY BEAR – this is one of the newest coasters to the area. It is located right on the strip in Gatlinburg. I bought a Groupon for this one in November and got a killer deal on it. But, I have to say I was disappointed. It was a smooth and fun ride, but the ride part after the lift hill was literally over in less than a minute and a half. It just seemed to be a very short ride for $16 per person. Now, you can save a little with THIS DEAL and see if you agree or disagree.

You can watch my ride on Rowdy Bear HERE.

**This one expires 120 days after purchase, which puts us at late June!


We finally rode this one in February! The ride lasted 9 minutes for me! From the time I started moving out of the holding area, until I got out. More than 9 minutes, y’all! The lift hill was a peaceful and enjoyable 6 minutes or so. But, I felt like I was hiking without the effort! HA! It goes through the woods and I felt for a few minutes, like I was in the National Park. Then, had a fun 3+ minute ride back down. I gotta say this may be the best bang for your buck!

You can get two rides for just $17.50 when you click HERE and use code WINTER.

**This one expires 120 days after purchase, which puts us at late June!
