“Gravity coasters” are a local specialty! Get your blood pumping as you sail downhill, then compare notes on your wild ride. Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster boasts the longest downhill run in the country. Rocky Top Mountain Coaster features four themed tunnels. For theme park thrills with more than than 50 rides, head to Dollywood.
