One Day in Pigeon Forge – Activities for Rain or Shine!
Have you been to the Smoky Mountains? Our family has driven through multiple times on trips to Myrtle Beach (2015 and 2019) and Central Florida, but we have never had a chance to stop…until this winter. We spent one day in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The day we were there, it was in the 40s and rainy so we were glad to have some activities planned to do rain or shine
TopJump Trampoline Park & Extreme Arena
Our first stop was TopJump Trampoline Park & Extreme Arena. This is so much more than a trampoline park! Not only is there open jumping, but they also have an air bag, Fire & Ice Ninja Course, basketball, dodgeball, kids zone and a huge climbing arena.
The climbing arena has 21 different climbing lines for anyone ages four and over! Just get a harness, clip in and go!
Crave Golf Club
Our second stop for the day was Crave Golf Club. We did mini bowling… a first for us! Haven’t heard of it before? We hadn’t either, but it was tons of fun! The lanes, ball and pins are miniature in size so there’s no worry about being able to find the right size ball.
After a fun game of mini bowling, it was off to the indoor candy themed miniature golf course! One thing that made this mini golf course unique was the game spinner at each hole. Want a challenge or something to make the game extra fun? Just spin the wheel and follow the directions on the wheel. Some of the variations we got were putt with your eyes closed, putt while standing on your left foot, and take one free putt on this hole.
In addition to mini bowling and the indoor mini golf course, there is an outdoor rooftop mini golf course, escape rooms, candy store and ice cream counter.
Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud
After a late lunch, we headed over to Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Feud! This is a 1.5 hour show where two families compete in real lumberjack events! The show is held outdoors, but the audience sits on a covered grandstand with heaters so it is open rain or shine!
Not only is the show very entertaining, but I love how they get the audience involved! As part of the audience you are cheering for one of the families. When your family wins one of the competitions, someone in the audience gets a “chip” stamped with the Lumberjack Feud logo to take home as a souvenir. Plus, during intermission, the audience is invited to come down and try their hand at the double buck!
You can also take advantage of the Lumberjack Adventure Park!
