See the Smokies with a new view when you visit Rowdy Bear Mountain! Gatlinburg, Tennessee holds an adventure park with two thrill rides from 9AM-11PM every day. These Rowdy Bear Mountain coasters are not like the ones you find at the amusement park. Here, you will swing with your feet in the air and glide through the Smoky Mountains at 35 mph, all while seeing Gatlinburg, Tennessee from new heights.
The First Mountain Glider in the world is an in-air coaster that operates in rain, snow and sunshine. Children have to be at least 80 pounds to ride this unique Rowdy Bear Mountain coaster. Individual ride tickets are $18 but parent and child combo tickets are only $24. You can experience the Great Smoky Mountains from up high with your feet in the air! Hold on tight as you fly above Gatlinburg and see the Smoky Mountains like you never have before. Race the person parallel to you while you go up and down and around in circles with the wind blowing through your hair…or helmet rather.
The Rowdy Bear Mountain Alpine Roller Coaster goes 35mph, so riders who are 3-9 years old need to ride with someone 16 years or older. Children under 3 years old and/or 37” tall are not able to ride. This thrill ride also operates in any type of weather and is run by a distance control system for safety. The carts are easy to operate and only people 54” or taller are able to drive the carts. Individual tickets are $16 each or you can purchase one-hour unlimited wristbands for $30. Parent and child combo tickets are also available for this Rowdy Bear Mountain coaster as well.
This is a unique coaster where you drive the cart on the rails of a winding trail through the Smoky Mountains. Get up close to nature while you ride around boulders, through the woods and above the trees. When you’re riding at night, the rails are lit up with multi-colored lights so you can still see the Smoky Mountains in a way you never have before.
Rowdy Bear Mountain Adventure Park runs specials often and you can see if there are any available for your trip here.
