As one of the most popular destinations in the area, The Island has many different things to do all in one area. It is the perfect place to take your family if you want to experience many different activities in one spot. Here are 4 of the best family attractions at The Island in Pigeon Forge:

1. The Escape Game

Escape Game Do you and your family have what it takes to solve the puzzles and escape? Visit The Escape Game to find out. You will be given a background story and have exactly 1 hour to try and solve the clues necessary to beat the clock. This type of attraction requires excellent teamwork and communication in order to solve the puzzles, which makes it one of the best family attractions at The Island in Pigeon Forge. There are several different unique themes to choose from, including the most popular Prison Break.

Your task is to find a way to sneak past the warden and escape the prison! This is just one of the themes that are available at the attraction. Be sure to check out all the different adventures awaiting your family at The Escape Game.

2. Island Mirror Maze

Just like The Escape Game, this is a fun activity where your family will be forced to work together to find the way out.

3. The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel

The ferris wheel takes you over 200 feet in the air, offering scenic views of Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains. Unlike normal wheels, this one uses all-glass air conditioned gondolas. This makes it better for people who have a fear of heights because they are closed in which helps aid their fear. The gondolas can also fit up to 8 people, making it one of the only attractions where your whole family can ride together. If you want to enjoy a fun ride while also being able to capture some amazing photographs of the mountains, be sure to ride The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel!

4. SkyFly: Soar America

As one of the newest attractions at The Island in Pigeon Forge, the SkyFly: Soar America is a thrilling adventure. As you take a seat in the flying theater, you will feel what it would be like to have wings and fly across some of America’s most famous landmarks. During the ride, guests are suspended with their feet dangling in front of a giant 40-foot screen. They will then be taken on a journey through America. The use of special effects, mists and scents, and wind combine to create an unforgettable experience for the entire family!
