Helen business owner sets sights on alpine coaster
Placeholder Image
Nestled in the Smoky Mountains of Pigeon Forge, Tenn., is a quiet little ride known as an “alpine coaster” that lets single riders cruise through the mountains and enjoy the view. Terry Sims, owner of Cool River Tubing in Helen, hopes to bring a similar alpine coaster to Helen. Alpine coasters are not the same as roller coasters, Sims said.
