This post is in partnership with the city of Pigeon Forge. Though some of my activities were complimentary to be included in a blog post, all opinions are my own. Yours may differ.
- Great Smokey Wheel – Pigeon Forge has its own “eye.” This massive wheels puts on it’s own beautiful light show and well as provide incredible views on Pigeon Forge. Once on the wheel you get to take five turns around so you really get to spend a lot of time enjoying the views. Going during the day offers beautiful majestic mountain views, but going at night when everything is lit is pretty fantastic as well. Go twice!
- Ropes Course – Near the Great Smokey Wheel is the ropes course. This attractions is three stories of adventure featuring 30 elements, two zip lines and a quick jump (optional and costs extra). Four of us had the guts to get harnessed up and attempt the ropes course. It was a lot of fun, slightly scary.
- Arcade City – This arcade is also located next to the wheel. It is really big and features some really amazing games we’d never seen before.
- Shopping – There were so many great shops at The Island. We snuck in a few for souvenirs, fudge, ice cream (twice) and specialty popcorn. It’s really fun to explore all your options at The Island.
- 7D Dark Adventure Ride – This was a really fun and unique attraction. In the 7D ride you get buckled into a theater and receive a laser gun. While watching a movie, you’ll feel wind, the theater moves with the sensation of the movie you are watching and you’re shooting your targets. It’s really fun!
Also at MagiQuest is Pirate mini golf which is black light and really fun. They also have a new arcade and a mirror maze coming soon. This is another activity that can take half a day alone! It’s really, really fun.
The Tomb is a very unique escape game. It’s set in an Egyptian Pyramid where you are tasked with helping the Pharaoh get back to his tomb. While the game itself is pretty fun, you are accompanied by a worker, so I didn’t love that. The puzzles weren’t too hard, but the setting was pretty scary for my 3 and 7 year old. You progress from room to room which is also pretty unique for an escape room.
This attraction has go karts and an arcade. Since y toddler wasn’t tall enough I stayed with her while the rest of my family raced. They had a good time. The tickets to prize ratio at this arcade is really bad, so try the others first.
Now the list is impressive but there are so many more things to do as well as amazing dinner theaters! When it’s time to travel with your family, Pigeon Forge needs to be in hat conversation. It’s definitely on our list or where to go (again).
