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!

"The kids loved it"

We found out about this coaster last year during a Spring Break trip to Branson, but didn't have time to check it out then. Since it was cold and rainy, odds are that it would have been closed, too. I knew that we were coming back in the Summer this year so i bought tickets for the kids to ride it. I decided to choose this one over the other coaster on the Strip, especially since this one took the kids through the wooded area. It is a little south of town, so don't let that deter you in your choice. They had fun and we opted for the re-ride. I do agree with others that a lower priced re-ride would potentially keep people going back, but otherwise it was fun.
