The Smoky Mountains area is alive and booming with tourists and natives alike. Attractions and an ever-changing rotation of fun activities are always available. Enjoy the natural beauty that can be found in the Great Smoky Mountains and then head into the more tourism-focused city for some great fun. There is a unique flight simulator ride in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee that you have to experience to really believe it.
The SkyFly: Soar America is a wonderful addition to The Island in Pigeon Forge.
For those not familiar, the Island is not an actual mass of land surrounded by water, but a super center for family fun and entertainment. With tons of stores, rides, and restaurants, you will find something amazing to do at The Island.
Our suggestion is to take a ride on SkyFly.
This amazing attraction is an immersive flying simulator that takes you on a virtual flight to some of the most scenic spots in the country. Start the journey by heading through the brick entryway where you will be transported into a story.
Walking up to get into the ride, you will be greeted with cool steampunk-related decor and TV screens that play the story of a scientist who has created a flying machine that you will soon be entering.
Once you follow each step of the way through the story, it will be your turn to get into the flying machine. Sit down and prepare to be transported on a wonderful trip across America.
The lights will go down and you will feel your seat moving as the floor shifts.
Soon you will be perched in your seat vertically with each row on top of the other. The screen will blink on and you will take flight on a spectacular ride.
The ride will take you all over America with incredible overviews of our National Parks and natural wonders.
The seat will simulate the feeling you would get by soaring high above these gorgeous spots. Smells and mist will greet you during certain parts of the ride and you will be sucked into the magical wonder of the SkyFly flying machine.
The Island is a crazy-fun place to enjoy an afternoon or even a full day. Make sure you put SkyFly near the top of the list of activities to do during your time there. This truly is a one-of-a-kind unique ride in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Buy your tickets and plan your next trip on the SkyFly.
If you are looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains like you do on the ride but in real life, check out this incredible cabin on top of a mountain.
