Description

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.

Took a trip on the Coaster. It's a one-of-a-kind experience. Try to go down the course without applying the brakes. Definitely recommend it.

We did these about 14 times on our trip to Branson. Our 5 yr old granddaughter loved them! She wanted to keep riding! Fun for kids and adults.

I'm not very excited about heights... or roller coasters. However, this is one I was able to take, not that it wasn't a crazy/thrill ride (make you feel like you're living)... because man it is, but that I was in total control of it the whole time! We had a blast and I truly believe you and your family will too! The staff is awesome and accommodating! You will not be sorry!

For two adults it was $36.00 that was tax and all. You can have two people in one car but not over 300 pounds. It takes about 5 minutes to get to the top so just sit back and relax. You can go as fast as you like going down! It is a little rough, but a very good time!

Took our first individualized roller coaster trip on the Runaway Mountain Coaster in Branson. Carts can hold one adult or an adult and child. This was fun! It was a slow ride to the top of the hill, allowing one to see the rugged countryside along the way, and then it was all downhill from there! You have brakes that can be applied if it feels too fast, but I am 66 and made it to the bottom without using my brakes. Loved it!
