CoasterKart at Rowdy Bear Ridge
What started as a year-round tubing destination has turned into an exciting adventure park! Rowdy Bear Ridge in Pigeon Forge is offering a new experience for visitors to enjoy in 2021: the CoasterKart. This brand new attraction is an interactive slide that is fun for the whole family. Along the ride, you’ll be in control of your own speed. But, it’s different from a traditional alpine coaster. The CoasterKart is a powered ride system with electrical bars installed in the track to power the karts. The 2 passenger vehicles allow friends and family members to ride side-by-side, and the speed is controlled by a foot brake instead of a hand brake. An official opening date for the CoasterKart at Rowdy Bear Ridge has yet to be announced.
