Harrison.  Ober Gatlinburg has partnered with ADG, Inc., of Cohoes NY, the leading manufacturer of mountain coasters and slides in the US, to bring this attraction to the top of Ski Mountain Road.  The ride lasts approximately 5 ½ minutes and covers approximately 3750 feet.

Designed for comfort, the unique ADG Mountain Coaster carts provide a more secure and comfortable ride with room for two riders, higher back rests and shorter brake levers for easier handling and control.  Whatever speed is chosen, the ADG coaster is top rated for safety and designed with a built-in collision avoidance and seat belt monitoring system.

ONE RIDE ~ Ages 3 & Up: $ 15

3 RIDES ~ SAME PERSON: $ 36
