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!

This would be a nice place is they had self checkout lines so you don’t deal with employees who hate their jobs or the manager that can’t problem solve to save her life. A good experience turn south. What a shame.

We took our 10 and 13 year old sons to ride this. They both went twice because they loved it. We went before going to Silver Dollar City - which is a good idea because this is a totally different experience. Not a mechanical ride - it is a cart on the railings and you control the speed (only faster or slower - it is actually regulated). It was a neat little, quick ride. And...because we could - we bought the t-shirts in the gift shop. There may be some sort of coupon thing because some people were handing in vouchers to get a free picture. I was not aware of that so it may have been through a time share or something like that.

My son, 14 years old, was getting bored so we thought we’d give this a try. Not to let him have the only fun, I went too. I’m not exactly small so I was worried about fitting. But it was no problem. We had a great time. It was quite a thrill. It was so fun we went a second time! Definitely worth the money!
