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!

"Pretty Great Until..."
August, 2018
This was my first trip on the coaster. The thrill of trekking.up the beautiful mountainside by way of train/pasenger car was pretty great. Until coming back to pay for our second ride was not a good experience at all. After arriving within about 30 minutes of closing, a ride that I thought would take about 15 mins, took much longer for a situation that could have been prevented.

"A must do!"

There’s no shortage of things to do in Branson, but this should be on everyone thrill seeker’s must do list. It’s a ton of fun! Because you control the speed, you can go down the hill at full speed for an awesome adrenaline rush, or slow it down a bit for the little ones. We make it up a couple times a year from Dallas, and this is always on the list. It’s a little off the beaten path, but still close to the strip...and if you’re trying to decide between this one and the “mountain” coaster directly on the strip, there’s simply no comparison. The staff is always wonderful, the facility is new, clean, and well maintained, and you can’t beat the setting and lights at night!

Christmas wonderland is a great show! I love hearing Brian Caraker & Sarah Marie sing. The dancers were great. That's what made this show awesome.

I was in town while visiting friends. We were staying at Big Cedar and wanted to give the mountain coaster a try. No crowds at the time so we walked right up. Great little trip down the coaster and will bring the kids next time. Staff friendly and helpful.
