Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster is a mountain coaster located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. It opened on August 3rd, 2013, and was the first mountain coaster to be built in the Smoky Mountains. The coaster is also the longest alpine coaster in the United States as well.
One to two riders sit in individual carts, which are pulled to the top of a mountain by the means of a cable. Once released at the top, the cart navigates twists and turns down the mountain on a secured rail. Unlike a conventional roller coaster, the cars are equipped with hand brakes, which allow the riders to control their speed. Additionally, the carts themselves have a magnetic braking system to prevent the cart from going too fast. The ride also has LED lighting for night rides, with over 300,000 lights.
