from The Runaway Mountain Coaster
The Runaway Branson Mountain Coaster is the only alpine mountain coaster in Branson and the Ozarks. This Alpine coaster was the most talked about thrill ride in 2016 with a 5-star rating on TripAdvisor! It is also the foundation of the area’s newest outdoor attraction park, the Branson Mountain Adventure Park. Mountain coasters are a relatively new attraction in America and we’re pleased to bring one of the best to the heart of the Midwest. Our Branson Mountain Coaster features more family-friendly thrills in town – more dips, more turns, more zigs and zags, more ups and downs. A true American made experience, the Branson Mountain Coaster races down the Ozark hillside weaving in and around trees, through nature and soars high over a creek leaving you breathless and ready to Runaway again!

"Closed but the only way you knew is by showing up there"

Never got to experience it, niece and nephew were all excited but this was closed for repairs the entire week we were there, nothing on the webpage only when you showed up to the park that said it was closed with no time table as to when it will be opened. Tried at least 4 times to see if it opened but no luck. The terrible score is for not updating the web page to let people know. A little communication would have been helpful.

We rode in the afternoon and again at night, at the staff's suggestion. They didn't steer us wrong... Cool air and lights were wonderful. You can go as fast or slow as you want, so it was good for everybody. Highly recommend this for all ages.

A great ride. Only $15 for the “driver” and $10 for the “rider” (plus tax). You can control the speed down the hill if you feel it getting too tense. I did use the breaks twice because I was afraid (for no reason) that I was going to fall off because you only have a seat belt holding you in the small cart. Really not a issue. Very safe in my option. Check out there website. Then go there on your next visit to Branson.

"Best Mountain coaster in Branson"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 13, 2017 NEW
This is easily the best mountain coaster in Branson, and a must do when you are in town. There's plenty of airtime, tight turns, and scenic views. The staff are personable, the price is reasonable, and the thrills are plentiful! I've ridden multiple mountain coasters, but this one is the most comfortable that I've encountered.

This is a fairly new Branson activity. We are senior citizens and we enjoyed it and would definitely do it again.
