From toddlers to teenagers, kids love Pigeon Forge’s adventurous attractions. Here are eight of the best to visit while you're on vacation!
1. GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK
Explore the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on your own, or take part in ranger-led family programs. Kids ages five through 12 can become Junior Rangers by completing activities. For family-friendly workshops and guided hikes, check out the Smoky Mountain Field School.
From adrenaline-pumping thrill rides for teens to kiddie rides for the youngest visitors, Dollywood truly is for all ages. Did you know Dollywood has a sister park, Splash Country Water Park? Get combo tickets for both or visit just one.
3. RAINFOREST ADVENTURES DISCOVERY ZOO
This Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo delights kids while they learn about animals and the world’s rainforests. Among the 130 species are varieties of snakes, frogs, lizards, lemurs, monkeys, exotic birds, and goats.
4. WEAR FARM CITY PARK
The two playgrounds are ideal when younger kids need to blow off steam. The park offers ample parking, restrooms, concession stands, walking trails, and shelters. Wear Farm is a welcome break from busy attractions.
5. PIGEON FORGE SNOW
Swoosh downhill on real snow all year long at this indoor snow tubing track. The temperature is always around 60 degrees so you never need a coat! Pigeon Forge Snow includes a kids’ snow play area for building snowmen and snow forts with pure snow made from 100 percent water.
6. BIG ROCK DUDE RANCH
Ride back in time on a gentle horse. Big Rock Dude Ranch lets kids experience the days of early settlers. Go horseback riding, mine for gems, fish, meet friendly animals at the petting zoo, and more.
7. THE TRACK FAMILY FUN PARK
Go-karts, bumper cars, mini-golf, and kiddie rides, all in one spot? That’s The Track. The Rookie Track is for older kids, while younger ones drive solo in Kiddie Karts or ride with grown-ups on the figure-eight Family Track. Don’t miss Blaster Boats, where you soak family and friends with your water cannon!
8. ESCAPE ROOMS
Escape rooms challenge you to solve puzzles and find clues while working against a deadline. For kids ages 10 and up, escape rooms are a vacation treat to enjoy without the younger siblings around! Try Smoky Mountain Escape Games, Trapped Escape Game, or The Escape Game Pigeon Forge.
