When you stay with Timber Tops Luxury Cabin Rentals, you’re getting the best of both worlds–a beautiful cabin vacation in Pigeon Forge AND free attraction tickets for fun things to do in Pigeon Forge with kids. Here’s a few favorite attractions and why you should make them part of your vacation:
Adventure Park and Legacy Zip Lines
Adventures Are Waiting! These guides are passionate about their work and it shows in their tours! Their number 1 goal is to keep you safe but running a close second to that is making sure you enjoy your time on vacation! If it’s your first time doing either activity do not worry! Highly rained tour guides will “show you the ropes” and teach you all you need to know. Keep in mind as well, every one of our zip lines has 2 lines! It’s called “redundancy” . We designed our Pigeon Forge zip lines with backup cables over the entire course because the safety of you and those with you will always come first at Adventure Park at Five Oaks!
Enjoy the ride at Adventure Park at Five Oaks.
