Pigeon Forge is home to hundreds of fun and exciting things to do. Whether you are young or young at heart, there is always something new to discover when you vacation here. However, sometimes the information about local attractions is geared more toward families and children. That is why we wanted to give you a brief breakdown of all of our favorite Pigeon Forge attractions for adults.
Here’s a few attractions that are a little more daring than some of the other things to do in the area:
Top 5 Pigeon Forge Attractions For Adults
1. Xtreme Racing Center
Here, you will find go karts that can reach speeds up to 45 mph. That is almost as fast as you drive on the Parkway.
Don’t worry, the karts are completely safe. You are even given your own helmet and a safety video to view before you take the track.

If you haven’t yet had the chance to sample one of the newest moonshine distilleries in the area, we suggest you add a trip to the Old Forge Distillery to your next vacation. Located in The Old Mill Square, this Pigeon Forge moonshine distillery works to combine old tradition with a new flare.
We love the Old Forge Distillery because they make it a point to use as many local products as they can during their distilling and bottling process. This includes using locally grown corn, locally crafted bottles and using grains grounded in The Old Mill.
This Pigeon Forge attraction is even better for adults because you can taste all of the unique flavors of moonshine that they offer for free. This means that you can sample all of your new favorite spirits before buying a bottle.

3. Outdoor Gravity Park
One of the newest Pigeon Forge attractions for adults, the Outdoor Gravity Park is unlike anything you have seen before. Here, you are invited to hop into a giant plastic ball where you will then roll down a 1,000-foot hill. If that doesn’t sound fun enough, the folks at the Outdoor Gravity Park even throw in a little water with you so you will slip and slide inside the sphere as you roll down the hill, so you better bring your bathing suit and a towel!
Don’t worry, the ride is completely safe. Just think of it as a modern-day slip n’ slide.
If you don’t really feel like getting wet, the Outdoor Gravity Park will soon be offering a dry version of their popular new ride. Here, you will be harnessed into the sphere to help keep you secure during the ride and to keep you from getting too dizzy. The dry ride is expected to open later this year.
To remember your trip, don’t forget to pick up a personal video or commemorative t-shirt in the attraction’s gift shop before you leave.

Remember when you were a kid and you always wanted to fly? Well now is your chance! At Flyaway Indoor Skydiving, you are invited to strap on a bodysuit and enjoy as the air pushes you off the ground. If you get skilled enough, you can even attempt a few tricks and twists during your flight to make your experience more exciting.
If you don’t feel like flying yourself but want to cheer on your friends, there is an observation deck where you can watch other skydivers for free. In fact, the staff at Flyaway encourages you to observe fellow guests before your session to get a feel for what the experience will be like.

The Island in Pigeon Forge has plenty of exciting activities for adults! You can ride the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel and see gorgeous sights of Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains from as high as 200 feet in the air, or you can visit Ole Smoky Moonshine and taste some moonshine and listen to live bluegrass music that plays on the outdoor stage!
