Attractions Magazine: SkyFly: Soar America begins flights at The Island in Pigeon Forge

By Samantha Davis-Friedman VIA Attractions Magazine

SkyFly: Soar America is the new signature attraction at The Island in Pigeon Forge entertainment park, located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee.

Co-developed by Dynamic, SkyFly: Soar America is North America’s newest flying theater and blends ingenuity, family, and Americana in a striking steam-punk setting that helps convey SkyFly’s story.

According to Mason Schmitz of P+A Projects, which designed the building, the attraction’s complex and curious exterior leads guests into an inventor’s workshop where they board an “airship” for a ride above some of the most famous places in the United States.

The Island entertainment destination draws over 12 million annual visitors with 23 acres of amusements, shopping, restaurants such as Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen and Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Island Hotel, and attractions like the Great Smoky Mountain Observation Wheel and, now, Sky Fly: Soar America.

“This adventure ride will thrill everyone and will quickly become a top reason for families to visit the Smoky Mountains and Pigeon Forge,” states Clay McManus, The Island’s executive that co-led the attraction development in partnership with Dynamic Entertainment. “I encourage everyone thinking of coming to the Smoky Mountains to come and experience this incredibly fun attraction.”
