The city of Pigeon Forge has approved an Alpine Coaster attraction to be built in Pigeon Forge. The Alpine coaster is said to be a mile long and reach speeds of up to 25 mph. It will use the mountain terrain near Wear Valley Road.
A couple from Germany is heading up the venture. If everything goes as planned the coaster will be open for business by the end of the year.
