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.

Loved everything about this experience except the 1 hr and 15 minute wait. I totally get that they have to leave space between the sleds and that takes time. Wonder if they could go to a "return at this time" ticket system? Staff was very nice and the actual coaster ride was a blast! Would definitely come again and recommend!

We did one in Pigeon Forge. It was really good. The Runaway is even better. I love how high it takes you. When it starts its decent it feels like it's going 50 mph even though it's not. On some turns it almost feels like you could fall off which makes it really cool. I did it at 5 still light out. Cannot wait to do it at night. A must do in Branson.

NOT THE ON THE STRIP!! Worth the short drive for the experience. I am soooo glad we experienced this awesome adventure. All of the workers were fun, nice and helpful. We went during the day- plenty of free parking. Bring hats, gloves and jackets because it gets windy and cold up in the mountain. Definitely do the daytime AND come back for the nighttime for only $10. Fun fun fun!!
