This collection of rides is known as The Mountain Monster, and it includes Monster Dive, Monster Launch, and Monster Fall. Monster Dive is the biggest, and you’ll ride to the top of the tower in an elevator. Once at the top, you’ll get onto the platform and sit in the seat. You’ll tip forward until you’re facing the ground, then free fall over the water feature at the front of the complex!

6. Monster Launch

Monster Launch is an exciting Pigeon Forge ride that you’ll have a blast doing! Riders sit back to back on a saddle. You’ll be blasted upward with compressed air, and there’s nothing quite like the feeling of negative Gs at the top! You might even get to flip at the top!

7. Monster Fall

But Monster Fall is just a little different. You’ll ride to the top of the 200 foot tower, and you have no idea when you’ll fall back down the tower. As you climb to the top, you’ll get to enjoy beautiful views and listen to your heart pound as you wait for the exciting part! Plus, Monster Fall only has a lap belt for even more excitement!

Another pretty unique Pigeon Forge ride you’ll want to try is Ski Lift Shootout Coaster. This attraction is at Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark, a snow-themed theme park that’s open year round!
