See the Beauty of the Ozarks Through a Mountain Coaster
If you are looking for an exciting outdoor fun in Branson, take a ride with The Runaway, a mountain coaster at Branson Mountain Adventure Park as it gives you utmost fun, thrill and an opportunity to see picturesque scenery and spectacular wildlife around the area. The mountain coasters that will let you experience a unique outdoor fun in Branson are now popular in Europe and continue to grow by leaps and bounds in the United States.
A mountain coaster is exactly as the name says – a coaster that utilizes the track set on land and travels through natural elevation changes to provide a thrilling ride in and around the natural features of the area. Riders are seated individually on the carts that are engineered so they can have a safe ride. The carts are pulled to the top of the mountain via the track using chains 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 the hills for a thrilling and unique ride experience. These mountain coasters are specially built to be as unobtrusive as possible so the natural beauty of the area can be preserved while providing a unique outdoor fun in Branson.
The mountain coasters are specially designed to allow riders to have control of their ride – with the use of a patented brake system. Riders can choose whether to slow down and take a more leisurely trip down the coaster track or use gravity to the full extent for the fastest and most exciting ride possible. This only means that when you are a roller coaster thrill seeker taking a pleasant trip with The Runaway Mountain Coaster down the hill featuring spectacular view of the Branson skyline, Branson Mountain Adventure Park will have you covered.
Your mountain coaster adventure is actually two adventures in one. You can choose to be a solo driver or a driver and a passenger to pick at the loading station where the expert attendant teaches you how to control your mountain coaster cart. Once you are seated, you will be released from the loading station and your cart will be attached to an uphill pulley cable. This cable takes you uphill for about 5 minutes – riding 1,900 feet of track rising 330 feet in elevation to the top of the mountain.
This slow and leisurely uphill ride lets you see spectacular Ozark scenery up close, lets you hear the tweets of birds – and watch other riders on their descent. Once you reach the top of the mountain you will be released from the cable and the ride is in your hands. When you want to slow down the speed, pull the brake handles or push them forward to speed up.
The Runaway Mountain Coaster at Branson Mountain Adventure Park is a great way to enjoy a fascinating coaster ride that takes you to the top of the mountain and travel down the hill.
