The Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster is located at 867 Wears Valley Road in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee 37863. To get to the coaster, take the Parkway and turn onto Wears Valley Road at traffic light #3 and you’ll find the Alpine Coaster on the left.

Perfect for the Whole Family

The Alpine Coaster’s sleds are designed to comfortably hold one or two people, making it ideal for a parent and child to ride together. Anyone over 56 inches tall can ride the coaster alone, and children taller than 38 inches can ride as a passenger.

Another reason families love the Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster is its speed control. The driver is in charge of how fast the sled goes, so children won’t get scared if the ride moves too quickly. On the other hand, adventurous families will be able to enjoy maximum speeds of 27 miles per hour!
