When fantasizing about rollercoasters, many people picture less than two minutes of pure joy operated by some unseen figure. For Missourians, the fun of rollercoaster riding can be left in the hands of your own thanks to a Missouri mountain coaster that operates day and night. You and a loved one are able to soar high in the sky through insane greenery you can't find anywhere else in the Show-Me State.
Runaway at Branson Mountain Adventure Park is an ideal experience for thrillseekers and those simply looking to try new things.
The ride can be operated by you or a friend, or even your S/O for a cute date night out.
Drivers pay $16 for their first ride, passengers pay $10 for their first, and each re-ride costs $10.
Be prepared to want to ride the mountain coaster more than once, especially with there being so few opportunities to do so in Missouri.
For $30 you can partake in the ride and fly combo, which allows you to enjoy ziplining and the Runaway all in one day.
Your experience on the Runaway begins by being released from a loading station and feeling your cart, attached to an uphill pulley cable, being pulled upwards.
You'll travel uphill for about 5 minutes and taking in the views of the incredible Ozark scenery around you.
Once you reach the top it's finally up to you how fast you fly along the tracks. You can get up to 30 mph while descending, spiraling, and more.
Before arriving, it's highly recommended that you read the coaster ride and safety requirements before attempting to hop on.
Get ready for the experience of your lives at one of Missouri's most thrilling adventure parks.
