I Love It When a Plan Comes Together

Mountain Coaster Concept Layout

Make Your Own Mountain Coaster in 3 Easy Steps!

You will need the following Ingredients:

  • Steep Hillside – 1
  • Trees – Hundreds
  • Gravity – 1 Planet’s Worth
  • Track – ~5,000 feet (Curved and straight track, as needed)
  • Vertical Drop – 330 Feet
  • 270 Degree Loops – 2
  • Coaster Barn For Selling Tickets, Souvenirs, Loading & Unloading – 1
  • Great Location For Visitors From Around the Country to Try it Out – 1


  1. Clear a path for your very own mountain coaster track. Cut down as few trees as possible. Watch out for the creek, you’ll probably need a bridge.
  2. Level Ground For Your Coaster Building-you’ll need a place for all your friends to load the coaster & head up the mountain.
  3. Build Your Building and Track. Stick to the Plan

  4. Inspect everything for safety and have some test runs.
  5. Ride your ride & Enjoy!

Or if all that is a little more effort than you want to put into it, just come visit the Runaway in Branson this summer for your very own made to order mountain coaster adventure.

    How far along is the construction? Would like to take some photos? Any approximation of a completion/opening date?

      Ken, right now we have over 1000 feet of track in place and our building framing is essentially finished. We are currently hoping for a mid-July opening date, but that really depends on the weather we get between now & then. We will keep the website updated as we know more. For the latest photos you can just click the photos tab on our site, or visit us on Facebook. Thanks!
