Mountain Coasters?

we've been to the one on 76, has anyone done both 76 and the one down towards Dana's? how do they compare? like one better than the other?

I'd be interested in the pricing too - this is something I think my grands would enjoy when we are in Branson later this month.

I kind of think the one on 76 cost us about 10 to 12 dollars for one person last summer, for an adult and kid to ride together was around 15.00, they had passes you could get that would let you ride all day but I can't remember what the prices were.

this one had 2 tracks you went over for that price, go down once, come back up and go again so at least for your money you felt like you were getting 2 trips, neither was very long. I enjoyed it though and would do it again.

I have grands myself although they're a little young to try the mountain coasters. I have ridden the one on 165 (near Dannas) and it's a rush! Great ride. Now that I think about it a little, I did get my 9-year-old Grand on Thunderration, so maybe he'll ride with me on our next visit.

I heard the Mountain Coasters near Danna's allow the rider to control the speed - so they can slow them down if desired. That' might make them more appealing?

the one on 76 had brakes. never used them, didn't feel like ever got up enough speed for them... and I certainly ain't no daredevil. it might give a younger person some security though to know they control the speed.

Haven't done the one by Dana's, but did do the one on the strip. They had a punch card that after so many rides, you got a free ride. Also, the second trip was cheaper if done the same day. Someone also said there were coupons on Groupon if you do that sort of thing. I can't remember the costs. The ride was fun and lasted a pretty good amount of time. There were not two tracks when we went, and you only did one time around the track.There is a break lever on the cars to use if you feel you are going to fast. A lady there told us that the one by Dana's went much faster and seemed to scare the younger riders. Don't know if that is true or not.

But what if you get behind somebody that controls their speed like some people drive on the Strip?

The Runaway Mountain coaster by Danna's is awesome! They also have night lights rides at night that are very cool. $16 driver, $10 passenger, $10 Re-rides.

We did the one by Dana ‘s. It is a blast and it goes fast to me. You can slow it down, which I did on the turns😆
