You can either choose to sit in a singular cart, or you can double up and ride with your boo or bestie. 

You'll actually control your own speed with handle levers, so if you don't want to hit 28 mph going downhill, you can go a little slower.

Drivers of the carts must be at least 54" tall and the max weight is 375 pound per cart in dry conditions and 330 pounds in wet conditions. This includes double carts as well. 

It's only $15 per person to take a ride on this coaster, making it an affordable date night idea.

While you're in the Helen area, make sure you check out the cute German town and maybe attend a few Oktoberfest events to really ring in the autumn season.
