Summer vacations in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee are all about fun in the sun! With average highs in the mid-80s, the summer is a great time to enjoy the area’s wet and wild attractions. To help you make the most of your next getaway, All Season Suites has put together a guide to the top five water activities in Pigeon Forge TN.
1. Riding the Slides at Dollywood’s Splash Country
Dollywood’s Splash Country is the perfect place to cool off during the dog days of summer! This awesome water park features a great collection of water rides and slides that your whole family is sure to love. Splash Country recently introduced TailSpin Racer, an epic 120+ yard racing slide with six lanes. Even if you’re not much of a daredevil, you will love relaxing in the park’s meandering lazy river or fun wave pool.
Zorbing at Outdoor Gravity Park is another one of the most popular water activities in Pigeon Forge TN. In case you’re unfamiliar with the word, a “zorb” is a large transparent sphere that is big enough for a person to roll around inside. At Outdoor Gravity Park, each zorb is filled with over 10 gallons of water, so participants will splish and splash their way down the course, rather than bumping their bottoms. Rolling down the park’s 1,000 ft. hill inside a zorb is an experience that you’ll never forget!
3. Enjoying the Blaster Boats at The Track
The Track in Pigeon Forge is home to a number of fun amusement park-style attractions. When the weather gets hot, we love to take a spin on The Track’s Blaster Boats. These fun bumper boats are equipped with water guns, so you can soak your friends or family members. Parents be warned: your children will start spraying you as soon as they get their hands on the boats’ blasters!
4. Whitewater Rafting with Smoky Mountain Outdoors
Located about 50 minutes away from Pigeon Forge, the Pigeon River is the third most rafted river in America. Smoky Mountain Outdoors offers awesome whitewater rafting trips down the Pigeon River that don’t require any previous experience. Whether you choose to conquer the Class 3 – 4 rapids of the Upper Pigeon River, or you would rather enjoy a nice relaxing float down the Lower Pigeon River, you will love being out on the water.
When you stay at All Season Suites, you won’t even need to leave the hotel to cool off! During the summer months, we offer a beautiful outdoor swimming pool that is always a hit with families. Kids will have a blast playing Marco Polo, racing each other, and splashing around, while parents will love having free entertainment for their children to enjoy.
