Description

from Rowdy Bear Mountain Adventure Park
Rowdy Bear Mountain Adventure Park is home to two amazing thrill rides including the First Mountain Glider in the world.

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.

We had two adults and one teenager. We got a special deal of two coaster rides and a gliding ride for $30. The prices are a little steep for such a short ride, but they were a lot of fun. The glider is purely a free for all and you just hold on for the ride; it’s a free fall. The coaster is controlled by the rider; so the speed can be less intense.

We've done the Alpine Coaster in Pigeon Forge, and the 11 and 12 year old boys say this is better! PLUS - they have a mountain glider....which the boys say is the BEST! BONUS! They have great combo deals for both coaster and glider, and return rider discounts last for three days, not just same day like the others. HINT: they have one hour unlimited ride bands for the coaster.....you can thank me later ;-)
