This is the newest of the various alpine mountain coasters in the area. The ride duration of this one is much shorter than the others if you take out tge extra long time from where you are to stop and then wait to be conveyed to the exit point. Others in the area offer a more thrilling ride.

Rowdy Bear was awesome, awesome, awesome! Our kids and the adults rode the mountain coaster and the glider and had a blast! ALL of the staff was great, especially Chris and Christopher, also another gentleman I didn't get his name. Great stop for family fun.

We bought the $30 combo of 2 coaster rides and 1 glider. Wish we'd just done the coaster. Did not do any of the other coasters in the area, so cannot compare. Pros: Nice friendly staff, appropriate on-site parking The coaster is pretty fun Cons: The glider is not very exciting, frankly. Yes, the coaster was fun, but it's not that exciting for me and my adult children and it's a short ride. The glider was out of service for an hour, and when it came back one of the twin tracks was at reduced capacity so the back-up of riders cleared slowly.

We went in the evening and got 1 hour wrist bands for the whole family. Ages 51, 48, 38 , 7 and 3. We rode at least 6 times in that hour and it was really fun! The 3 year old would have wanted to stay longer but they were closing. We will definitely go back when we return to Gatlinburg. Very friendly staff!!

We bought the saver ticket - one glider ride and two coaster rides for $30. Running short on time for another event, we were able to come back for the coaster rides. Especially fun at night! Good staff, short safety speeches but appropriate for us. Would recommend that they have more than one person at check-in and post their prices outside the front door so you don't get stuck behind people who can't decide!
