The Runaway Mountain Coaster is a thrill ride that is unique in the Ozarks. Mountain coasters have continued to explode in popularity in Europe and are growing by leaps and bounds in the United States. The Branson Alpine Coaster uses the natural topography of the area to have an exciting user-controlled thrill ride that your family will want to ride again and again.

What is a mountain coaster?
A mountain coaster is exactly as the name says — a coaster that uses the lay of the land and natural elevation changes to provide an exciting ride in and around the natural features of the area. Riders are seated in individual carts that are engineered to exacting safety standards. The carts are pulled to the top via a chain similar to traditional roller coasters. At the top of the mountain, carts are released to travel down the hill, winding in and out and around trills and hills for a thrilling and unique experience. These low profile mountain coasters are specially designed to be as unobtrusive as possible and preserve the natural beauty of the area while providing an experience few will ever forget.

You pick your thrill level!
The carts are specially designed to allow riders to have control of their ride-with a patented braking system, guests can choose whether to slow down take a more leisurely trip down the coaster track or use gravity to the full extent for the fastest and most exciting ride possible. That means that whether you are a roller coaster thrill seeker or someone looking for a pleasant trip down the hill and an unparalleled view of the Branson skyline we will have you covered.

What are the rules to riding?
Branson Mountain Adventure Park says the coaster has some of the most advanced safety systems in the industry. They give distance warning systems and automatic braking as examples of their safety systems, but say the customer still needs to cooperate in order to have the "safest and most thrilling ride in Branson."
For rider safety, the rules are:
•A lone driver must be at least 9 years old and 52” tall.
•A passenger must be at least 3 years old and 36″ tall.
•To ride double, the driver must be at least 16 years old.
•The maximum combined weight of the riders is 300 pounds. No exceptions!
•Driver must be able to operate both brake levers.
•Riders and drivers alike cannot be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
•Stay at least 80 feet from the cart in front of you, 180 feet when wet. Don't worry, we'll show you how to gauge this difference!
•Seat belts must remain latched until directed by the ride attendant.
