People often ask us if we run our Pigeon Forge zipline tours in the rain. Yes, we do, unless conditions include strong winds, extremely heavy rain or lightning. After all, we're all about safety first around here. So for the rare occasion that we don't have tours running, we'll give you some options for what to do on a rainy day in the Smokies.
Go on with the show
There are nearly 20 different shows in Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Gatlinburg, and unlike the old days, when it was all about the music, you'll find a little bit of everything on the stages of the Smokies these days. Yes, you'll hear plenty of country, gospel and bluegrass music, but other theaters entertain with horseback exhibitions, lumberjack competitions, comedy and variety, acrobatics, magic and even murder mysteries. These shows are great for all ages, and in many cases, you'll get a meal along with your show as well.
Spend a day in the museum
When we say “museum,” we're not talking about some stodgy old institution full of paintings and dinosaur bones (although those can be pretty cool too…). We're talking about unique attractions that are full of fun and unique exhibits designed to delight the entire family. You'll see nature's oddities and extreme feats at places like the Guinness World Records Museum and Ripley's Believe It Or Not!, and you'll see amazing vehicles from TV and film at the Star Cars Museum, all in Gatlinburg. In Pigeon Forge, WonderWorks is full of amazing interactive exhibits that entertain and make you think at the same time, while the Titanic Museum Attraction is a hands-on journey back in time that pays tribute to the legendary ship.
Discover the animal attraction
You'll discover some of the most amazing species of animals on the planet at places like Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg and Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo in Sevierville.
