Have you heard about Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark? If you haven’t, then it’s one of the first attractions you’ll want to experience on your vacation! This adventure park is right off the Pigeon Forge Parkway next to The Local Goat. You can’t miss the huge tubing hill! But what will you enjoy about this attraction? Here are some of the things you’ll love about Rowdy Bear!

1. Tube All Year Round

Although the tubing hill is outdoors, you can tube all year long! Ober Mountain in Gatlinburg only offers tubing in the summer and winter, and Pigeon Forge Snow is only indoors. Rowdy Bear is the only outdoor tubing attraction where you can enjoy it no matter when you’re in town! Of course, in the winter, 8 of their 11 lanes turn into snow tubing for the ultimate experience! They also have the longest lanes at 500 feet! Everyone will have a blast riding up the Magic Carpet Conveyor and fly down the lanes on their tube!

2. Experience a Unique Theme

You may think that because of the name, that Rowdy Bear is only open in the winter. That’s simply not true! They love winter and snow, so they wanted to bring it to visitors of Pigeon Forge year round! That’s why all of the decor, names of the rides, and merchandise talk about snow! You won’t find another snow-themed attraction that’s open year round in the area!

3. Try the Various Attractions

The ride looks like a chair lift, but it takes riders on a more thrilling adventure around the park! You’ll take your laser gun and try to hit all the targets along the ride to get more points than the person you’re riding with. Whoever’s score is higher at the end of the ride wins! You can also try axe throwing with the supervision of one of the trained employees!

4. Let the Kids Enjoy the Playground

Something else that’s pretty unique about Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark is their playground! You won’t have to pay anything for your kids to climb, chase each other, and play games at the playground. They’ll have a blast playing together, and you’ll have fun watching them!
