Pigeon Forge cabins offer a great way to find peace, quiet and solitude when you're on vacation. But there may come a time that you want to shake things up a little bit and live on the edge for a few hours. Not to worry. There are several attractions in Pigeon Forge that offer the chance to take a walk on the wild side.
Dollywood roller coasters – From the bone-rattling Thunderhead to the smooth loops and dives of the new Wild Eagle winged coaster, this theme park has five major outdoor coasters that are sure to bring out screams of delight. The latest addition being Lightning Rod, half wooden coaster and all the benefits of a steel coaster.
Smoky Mountain Ziplines – Located just a couple of miles from the Pigeon Forge Parkway, this fun-time outpost offers a total of 7 ziplines for you to strap on and fly through the air like a bird. Lines start out low and slow but build into long, fast and high. A unique descent feature drops you 30 feet to the platform below. Free water and drinks while at the outpost.
Zorb – You'll really have a ball at this attraction, where you literally climb inside a giant, inflatable sphere and roll downhill for dizzying thrills. For those who don't enjoy the tumbling sensation so much, you can get in a water-filled orb, which lets you stay in an upright position as you slide down the hill.
Pigeon Forge is also filled with miniature golf, alpine coasters, go-carts and much, much more to keep your family going. Choose Pigeon Forge for your next vacation in the Smokies.
About Leif Palmer
Leif Palmer loves residing in the Smoky Mountains. He is an avid outdoorsman: rowing for exercise on the lake, trail hiking, and free climbing rocks in the mountains. He indulges his arty side by periodically beating up pieces of marble by sculpting. He is always frustrated by his inability to sink long putts, and hates his curly hair (but his wife loves it). Leif has been known to muster enough courage to change a diaper, and hopes his son will become a chip off the old block.
