Learn All About the Newest Mountain Coaster in Gatlinburg: Mountain Glider

Rowdy Bear Gatlinburg

Get ready to experience the first ride of its kind in the world on the Mountain Glider at Rowdy Bear Mountain! This suspended single rail coaster combines the sensations of free falling and hang gliding into a safe and fun experience! Here is everything you need to know about the new Mountain Glider attraction at Rowdy Bear Mountain:

1. What to Expect

The Mountain Glider is a unique coaster experience that allows you to safely soar through the treetops of Rowdy Bear Mountain! This thrilling ride is different from the traditional mountain coaster experience, as you are suspended in the air beneath a single rail rather than riding on top of tracks attached to the ground. The really cool part is that you can race your family and friends on the dual Glider tracks that reach speeds up to 35 miles per hour! The staff at Rowdy Bear Mountain has been working for months to construct the foundations, cut trees and prep the mountain for Gatlinburg’s newest adventure. Now you can be one of the first people to experience the Mountain Glider attraction!

2. Rates and Restrictions

The Rowdy Bear Mountain Glider is only $17.95 plus tax per ride, and all riders must be at least 48 inches tall to ride alone. Extend your adventure by purchasing a combination ticket that includes the Rowdy Bear Mountain Coaster for just an additional $8.95 plus tax for the same rider! This is a fun gravity-propelled alpine mountain coaster where you control the speed of your own sled. Reach speeds up to 35 miles per hour as you wind through the woods of Rowdy Bear Mountain! The coaster cars on the Mountain Coaster feature the latest Intelligent Distance Control System to make sure that every guest has a safe and enjoyable experience on the ride.

3. Hours of Operation

The two attractions at Rowdy Bear Mountain are open at different hours throughout the season, so be sure to check the Rowdy Bear Mountain operating schedule prior to your visit. The new Mountain Glider and the Mountain Coaster are generally open during the day and at night for two totally different experiences. After you glide above the mountains during the daylight hours, see what it’s like to soar through the darkness at night!
