1. Experience Breathtaking Mountain Views
The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel offers a unique vantage point to experience the breathtaking views of the mountains, so bring your camera along to capture the best photos of your entire vacation! While you can enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery throughout Pigeon Forge, there is nothing quite like climbing 200 feet into the air for a bird’s eye view of the Smokies! The comfortable, all-glass gondolas make it easy to see in every direction, and they can seat up to 8 guests so that you can ride with your family and friends!
2. See the Sparkling Lights of The Island at Night
While the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel offers spectacular views during the daylight hours, it is also open for night rides! This is a unique opportunity to see The Island of Pigeon Forge all lit up in the evening, and you might even get lucky enough to catch a presentation of the Island Show Fountain while circling around the wheel! This is a romantic time to ride the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel with your sweetheart as your gondola gently glides through the air! If you just can’t decide when to ride, go for the Day/Night combo ticket so that you can get the best of both worlds!
