Hey everyone ! I hope you are having a fantastic week. We recently visited our newest mountain coaster credit; Rocky Top. Rocky Top is the newest of the Gatlinburg area mountain coasters, and the longest! Rocky top gives riders 50% off if they choose to ride again ( With the same day receipt ) if the rider wants to. Night and day are totally different ride experiences.

Rocky Top Mountain Coaster Station/First Lift

Much like the other mountain coasters; Rocky Top features the standard trains, tracks, and lift/station system , but it has 4 lifts instead of 1 main one. This means 4 full downhill sections, 4 different ride experiences, and a 9 minute total experience.

Load/Unload Section of the Station

You can see the transfer section and barn doors where ops can add or remove carts depending on the amount of people there.

Brand new coaster complex restrooms

No one was here during our visit so I had to share how awesome even the restrooms are here. Very clean, and very well themed to the outdoors. The whole complex is very well built and is very safe and accommodating for the whole family.

Rocky Top Mountain Coaster Final Downhill Section

The only part of the attraction visible to the public is this final helix section and small man made rock tunnel picture top left.

Riders can ride one or two riders per train with a 375 max weight limit. ( or 350 max in wet conditions )
