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.

This was so much fun. We went with 3 teenagers and they loved it so much they wanted to go again.

"Lots of fun"

This coaster ride looks much better than the other one in town. While this one seems to be more money it's worth it and worth the little extra drive. If you tell them how many times you want to ride (if you know that is) they might work with you on the price. We told the guy that we wanted to ride 3 times and he said he would give us the "Facebook" rate which was $11.25 per ride so we saved a little money. Before you ride they have a video for you to watch and a consent form to sign if you decide to ride. Like other people have said you can ride either single or double. As they say on the ride "You control the ride" you decide how fast or slow you go down by using the brakes. They also have t-shirts, sweatshirts, and small stuffed animals you can buy. Have fun and enjoy!!

"Night-Time Ride!!"

This is a must for those visiting Branson. My grandson road with me and for the first 5 minutes, we road up hill and were able to talk. Going down was a blast - fast with crazy night-time lighting! Good price for a fun ride - and only $10 to do it again!!

This should be a must on any trip to Branson. This is our favorite Mountain Coaster. There is another one on the strip that is no where near as nice. You ride up the mountain for 5 minutes, then go down the mountain as fast (or slow) as you want. You control the cart. I have seen a few people back out at the last minute. It is not a frightening as it looks, but it is even more fun that you think it will be! The company is making plans to add a zipline. It looks like it will be a very long ride down the mountain. Some tips--plan more time than you think. Once you ride once, you will want to pay the extra $10 for a second ride. Watch for the T-Shirt offer. If it is offered, this season they had a t-shirt you could purchase allowing rides for $8 each. It is a great deal if you plan on multiple rides.

"Fun short ride"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 31, 2018 NEW
We had fun doing this ride. You are on a track in a sled, looks like a rollercoaster more than a bobsled. Each sled seats one or two persons (your choice). You are pulled to the top of the hill on the track then descend down a twisty trail with turns. You control the speed of your descent. About 5 min ride up and about 5 min down. All enjoyed it, even the teenagers. Line was not long but we were there early and it was cold Only negative the cost, about $30 for two in a sled. There is a weight restriction, you must be under 300lbs.

"Adrenalin Rush"

Reviewed December 30, 2018 NEW
Albeit a little cool, the mountain coaster was a highlight of our amusement rides. The slow pull up the mountain was relaxing and then the adrenalin rush from the downhill run; full of fast straightaways and turns.
