The Laser Gun Coaster is just one of the many great activities you can test out when you visit our amusement park in Pigeon Forge. Soar your way through the ridge as you try to rack up as many points as possible by shooting at targets. This is an attraction that people of all ages can enjoy together! Here are 4 reasons why your family will love the Laser Gun Coaster at Rowdy Bear Ridge:
1. Family Competition
There isn’t anything like having a few extra bragging rights over your family members. You will have that opportunity on the Laser Gun Coaster. When you enter the ride, you will see a laser gun hanging down beside you. Once the ride begins, you will be taken on a thrilling journey through Rowdy Bear Ridge. Be sure you keep your head on a swivel and be on the lookout for the numerous targets scattered throughout the journey. For each target that you hit, you will be awarded 100 points. After the ride is over, you can compare scores with the person you ride with to see who has the better aim. If that is you, you’ll have the last word for the rest of the vacation. To take it one step further, why not make a friendly bet before the ride? The loser can buy the winner a sweet treat at the Ice Cream Bar in the gift shop!
2. Amazing Views
We know you are going to be focused on shooting the targets, but don’t forget to take a minute to appreciate the amazing view of the Smoky Mountains. The Laser Gun Coaster takes you on a scenic journey all around the park, where you will see the beautiful backdrop of the Smokies from many different angles. Rowdy Bear Ridge is situated on a large hill so be sure to get some amazing pictures along the way. Once you experience the views from the coaster, be sure to take a trip to the top of our Tubing Hill for another scenic masterpiece.
3. One of a Kind Experience
The Laser Gun Coaster is North America’s first Alpine Flyer. It is a two-seated suspended coaster that will swing and soar through the air. The neatest thing about this ride is that your feet are dangling the whole time! Unlike a traditional roller coaster, this gives you the extra feeling of flying through the air. If you want to add an additional feature to this amazing ride, try experiencing it at night! The combination of the flashing lights mixed with the darkness of the mountains makes it one of the must see things in Pigeon Forge!
4. Thrilling Speed
Just because we expect you to shoot at targets along the way, doesn’t mean this is going to be a slow ride. You will be whipped through the ridge at high rates of speed. After all, we don’t want to make it too easy on you. Also, be sure to keep your eyes on the targets. As soon as you think you have one in sight, the coaster will make a sudden turn! Once you ride a few times, you will become a shooting professional!
Now that you know why your family will love the Laser Gun Coaster, be sure to check out the other thrilling activities at Rowdy Bear Ridge! We hope to see you soon on your next Smoky Mountain adventure!
