Gatlinburg continues to be home to new attractions year after year. In 2018, we welcomed Ice Bumper Cars at Ober Gatlinburg and the opening of the Rail Runner Mountain Coaster at Anakeesta. Ice Bumper Cars offers a fun take on a classic attraction! People of all ages can have a blast spinning around the ice and bumping into other cars. The attraction is located on the indoor ice skating rink at Ober Gatlinburg, which is now separated into sections for both ice skating and Ice Bumper Cars. The Rail Runner Mountain Coaster at Anakeesta is a single-rail mountain coaster that is the first of its kind in the United States. The Rail Runner takes you on a thrilling downhill ride with a 400 ft. elevation change and can hit speeds of 25 miles per hour!
