Pigeon Forge definitely isn’t short of things for you to do when you visit. There’s so many great things to do in the area, but The Island, one of Pigeon Forge’s newest attractions, is one of the best places to visit. Plus, we are located within a couple of minutes drive from The Island or a 10-15 minute walk. These are a few of our favorite things to do at The Island that you can’t experience all in one place at home!
1. The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel
You can see this modern-day ferris wheel for forever when it’s lit up at night. The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel is located in the heart of the Island, and will be a great excuse to get off your feet for a bit. Once you get to the top, you can enjoy an amazing view of Pigeon Forge and the mountains around you.
2. Ole Smoky Moonshine
Get your I.D. ready because if you’re 21 or older you can try samples of the different types of moonshine that’s available in store. The flavors, and strength of the alcohol, range from proof 100+ Original flavor to a lower proof like Blackberry. You’ll love sampling some of the flavors. Make sure to pick up a souvenir jar of moonshine to take home with you! Click here to see what flavors you can get at Ole Smoky Moonshine!
3.The Escape Game
This timed attraction tests your critical thinking skills and your teamwork with other people as you try to escape the room you are in within 1 hour. The clues you can receive will help you escape, but after you use 3 they start adding extra minutes to your time. But don’t worry, this isn’t an issue because it only counts toward the leaderboards anyway!
