One of Pigeon Forge's prime attractions, Dollywood makes for a fun day of adventure and fun. Named for and founded by Dolly Parton, the country music diva known for her big hair (and bigger bosom), this amusement park features tons of Appalachian-themed fun, from the Mystery Mine roller to a steam locomotive. There is also, of course, plenty of Dolly Parton memorabilia to be found here!
Dolly Parton is known for big and bold, so it makes sense that one theme park wouldn't be enough for the country music icon. That's why she's added a water park to her Dollywood empire. Splash Country features more than 25 splashy slides and rides, plus children's playground areas to ensure the whole family can have fun in the sun here. Cutting-edge technology also allows you to plan your itinerary online, reserve a place in line at the most popular rides, and wear a 'smart' bracelet instead of carrying cash to pay for purchases.
To get around Pigeon Forge without being cooped up in a car, opt for the Fun Time Trolley, a classic and affordable ride around town. The open-air trolleys cruise around town, stopping at a variety of restaurants, shopping outlets, and other attractions.
Imagine boarding a tethered helium-filled balloon, and then soaring almost 400 feet into the air, the stunning landscape of the Smoky Mountains stretching out beneath you. Part of the WonderWorks museum, Wonders of Flight gives you a 360-degree bird's-eye view of the spectacular Pigeon Forge landscape.
With two 18-hole courses, Adventure Golf provides plenty of fun for the whole family. This very challenging mini-golf course is sure to bring out your inner child while you take in the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
Adventure Raceway provides you with the opportunity to experience not only go-karts but also bumper boats. The go-kart track offers a three-story wooden spiral, while the bumper boats offer a nice way to cool down and splash around.
With five different trails to accommodate any horse rider's experience, GoldRush Stables allows both beginners and seasoned equestrians to enjoy the great outdoors from the perch of a saddle. This family-approved horse riding adventure is a 'relax and ride at your own pace' attraction.
Outdoor Gravity Park is sure to get that adrenaline flowing. After choosing a waterless or water filled orb, you'll literally get the ball rolling, tumbling along on an amazing ride down one of three courses.
Situated about 30 miles from Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove is the most visited area of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for good reason. From 19th-century homesteads and churches to meandering trails and rolling fields, the park is a treat for history buffs and nature lovers alike. As you walk, bike or drive along a backdrop of mountains, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife such as black bears, turkeys, and deer.
Pigeon River flows through North Carolina and Tennessee, offering plenty of adventure. The river is also cool and refreshing, providing a fun way to escape the heat during the summer months. Whether you relax on the banks or rush down the rapids, you should be sure to visit this fun spot.
