Favorite Indoor Attractions in the Pigeon Forge Area

Updated on July 4, 2018

There are so many things to do in the Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, area. Our favorite indoor attractions are listed here. These are great on a really hot or cold day or when it's raining outside. All of these attractions are moderately priced and several can be purchased as part of a package that includes other attractions, as well.

Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, located in Gatlinburg, is a wonderful location to visit for all ages. It is well worth the $5.99-$22.99 cost. Open daily, more than 10,000 sea creatures can be seen in a variety of underwater environments. There are sharks, coral reefs, a Tropical Rainforest, Touch-a-Ray Bay, interactive exhibits including the Penguin Playhouse and glass-bottomed boat tour. Walking through the acrylic tunnel on the moving sidewalk provides close-up views of many creatures in the large tank around you. Combo packages are available with the many other Ripley's attractions in the area.

The Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge is a theater with good, clean family fun. The two hour variety show has ventriloquists, animals, singing, dancing and hilarity that must be experienced to be believed. Hokey? Yes, but the whole family will enjoy it anyway. Cost is $10.00 to $25.00. Combo packages are available for the attraction, as well, with other local shows.

The Titanic is an unusual attraction in Pigeon Forge but guests love it. The 30,000 square foot museum is dedicated to the 1912 Titanic. Open daily, there are two decks and 20 galleries with stories and artifacts from the ship. Upon entrance, each guest is given a card with the name of one of the 2,208 passengers and a biography of that person. At the end of the self-guided tour, you can discover whether your passenger survived or perished. Touch a real iceberg and feel the cold water that surrounded the ship. Cost is from $11.19 - $22.37 plus tax per person.

Rainforest Adventures Zoo opened in 2001 as an indoor zoo in Sevierville, TN. More than 600 animals are exhibited, including: snakes, lemurs, kangaroos, cockatiels, finches and insects. Educational programs are offered and the attraction is open daily. Tickets range from $6.99-$11.99.

Forbidden Caverns in Sevierville is open 8 months a year and 6 days a week. A guided one hour tour ranges from $8-$14 and showcases unusual calcite formations and rare white onyx. Numerous grottoes and a sparkling underground stream fascinate visitors. Touch the "lucky fried egg" formation and learn about the Cherokee Indians and moonshiners in the caves. Early morning tour participants may see bats and salamanders during certain seasons. The constant 58 degree temperature makes for a welcome break from the summer heat.

No matter what the weather, there is always something to do in the Pigeon Forge area. Enjoy!

    I also love the Space Needle. The mountains are my favorite thing here and the reason we moved to the area.

    Gotta go up in the space needle in Gatlinburg. A great view day or night.

    There's some mountains nearby, also. ;) Too many people overlook those.

    I visited your area when my siblings and I gave our mother a surprise 68th birthday event in Pigeon Forge (we're from VA). We absolutely loved it! From the cabin to the strip in Pigeon Forge and Dolly's Dixie Stampede. We wish to return and return we must because we missed out on everything in Gatlinburg; we didn't realize what all was there! (Can you believe that!?) And I see you live in Sevierville. We didn't know how to pronounce the name, so we settled on See-ver-ville out of the options; Sevierville didn't sound right (lol). (I heard Dolly say it on TV one day.) Thanks so much for this hub--good memories!
