The Top 5 Pigeon Forge Attractions for Adults
While Pigeon Forge, TN is most famous as a family vacation destination, there are plenty of great things for adults to do too! Whether you are planning a couple’s getaway or a trip with some friends, an escape to the Smoky Mountains never disappoints. To help you make the most of your next vacation, Acorn Cabin Rentals has put together a guide to the top five Pigeon Forge attractions for adults.
1. Ole Smoky Moonshine Barn
The Smoky Mountains are well-known for their moonshine: unaged whiskey that was traditionally made under the light of the moon. While white lightnin’ used to be distilled under the cover of darkness (to avoid the long arm of the law), it is now totally legal and available in town! When you visit the Ole Smoky Moonshine Barn at The Island in Pigeon Forge, you can sample some of Tennessee’s signature spirits. Tastings at the Ole Smoky Barn are $5, but guests receive a $5 coupon in return that can be applied to any purchase made in the store.
Some of the most popular moonshine flavors you can try at Ole Smoky include Apple Pie, Hunch Punch Lightnin’, Orange, and Blackberry. The Ole Smoky Barn regularly hosts live bluegrass music, so it is a great place to visit even if you don’t partake in the moonshine.
2. Hollywood Wax Museum
The Hollywood Wax Museum is another one of the best Pigeon Forge attractions for adults. Guests at this fun museum will have the chance to pose for photos with wax replicas of some of the silver screen’s biggest stars, including Tom Hanks, Bradley Cooper, Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, and Robert Downey Jr. The statues are so lifelike that your selfies might even fool your friends! In addition to current celebrities, the museum also features replicas of classic entertainers like Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Audrey Hepburn, and John Wayne.
3. The Escape Game
Visiting The Escape Game is like jumping right into a Hollywood blockbuster! Located at The Island in Pigeon Forge, this popular attraction features a variety of themed adventures for guests to enjoy, including a prison break, a trip to Mars, an art heist, and a secret agent mission. In each game, participants have 60 minutes to find clues, solve puzzles, and complete their challenge. A trip to the Escape Game is great for groups because you’re going to need all of the brain power you can get in order to win!
4. Soul of Motown
The Soul of Motown is a can’t-miss show for anyone who loves the oldies! Running at the Grand Majestic Theater, this wonderful show pays tribute to Motown legends with toe-tapping renditions of songs made famous by The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Sam Cooke, and other beloved artists. Guests at the Soul of Motown can also enjoy a delicious all-you-can-eat dinner before the show.
5. Alcatraz East Crime Museum
The Alcatraz East Museum takes a fascinating look at crime in the United States. The museum features 28 interactive exhibits that are organized around five themes: the history of American crime, the consequences of crime, crime scene investigation, crime-fighting, and pop culture.
