Thrill-seekers will love the chance to drop, dive and dangle from a 200-foot tower in Pigeon Forge. The Mountain Monster offers three amusement ride experiences in one. The most intense of the three, the Mountain Monster features a 65-mile-per-hour┬ádrop from a 175-foot tower. Oh, and you’ll be facing the ground during the experience. The Monster Fall suspends passengers at the top of the tower just long enough to get a view of the beautiful mountain vistas. Then, you’re dropped 175 feet at a speed of about 50 miles per hour. This time, you’ll be sitting up, so it’s a completely different experience. The last ride is the Monster Launch. Sitting back-to-back, two passengers are catapulted 140 feet into the air. If you’re brave enough, you can opt to flip at the top. The experience is not for the faint of heart!

Brand new in 2019, the Mountain Monster anchors a forthcoming shopping and entertainment complex that’s right in the middle of the action in Pigeon Forge. You’ll have no excuse not to have fun!
