Mountain Coasters in Branson

Roller coasters.

More than likely, those two words conjure up images of theme parks full of adventure seekers, riding and bouncing along towering tracks, mouths agape and screaming, as their hair blows wildly out of control. While roller coasters have been around for years, folks who travel to Branson are enjoying varied coaster experiences thanks to The Runaway Branson Mountain Coaster and, new to Branson in 2017, The Branson Coaster.

These coaster rides put you (the rider) in control as you navigate from your takeoff point to the end of the line along specially designed coaster tracks. Carts are open to one or two riders at a time.

Thrilling guests with its amazing ride, the Runaway – the chief attraction at Branson Mountain Adventure Park – features nearly a mile of track and allows riders to reach speeds of up to 30 mph. If that’s too fast for you, fret not. You’re in control of the ride and each cart comes with a braking system for you to use. As you glide down the tracks, the beauty of the Ozark Mountains – whose rugged terrain offers ideal conditions for these types of rides – may rush by in a blur, but it’s an outdoor experience you won’t forget.

Tight corners and two, 360-degree horizontal loops guarantee a great ride on this new-to-Branson attraction, which is what will be first of many thrilling rides at Branson Mountain Adventure Park.

Oh, and if you vacation days are too packed you can ride at night, under the lights; check their website for details.

Like the Runaway, The Branson Coaster uses the region’s topography to maximum advantage. Riders on The Branson Coaster experience a 1,000-foot elevation change early in the ride, and then maneuver through a series of twists and turns as they make their way toward the finish line.

But that’s just the beginning. A mechanical system moves your cart into the second phase of the ride, which includes a free-fall-like feeling you won’t forget.

Stay up to date with The Branson Coaster’s progress on its Facebook page and/or website.

Enjoy these two rides the next time you explore Branson and start planning your getaway today!
