If you love roller coasters and you love mountains, I have found the perfect road trip for you. A new video share shows what it's like to ride the Runaway Mountain Coaster in Branson, Missouri.

Since I consider myself a roller coaster aficionado, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I wasn't aware of the Runaway Mountain Coaster in Branson. This very slick video gives you an idea of what the experience is like.

That's all fine and good, but the Runaway Mountain Coaster gets extra special at night. Check this out.

According to the official Runaway Mountain Coaster website, it's the longest coaster in Branson, Missouri at over a mile long.

There are ziplines there, too, if defying gravity is on your to-do list.

If this sounds fun to you, here are a few things you need to know:

  • The Runaway Mountain Coaster is now open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays in September
  • You need to fill out an adventure agreement before making the trip
  • The driver controls the ride

Oh, wait. You didn't know that you control the ride? Yep, it's true. If you do fancy yourself a driver, be aware that it will cost you a little more. First ride for drivers is $18 while passengers can ride for just $10.
