The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel

Monday, August 21, 2017
We love the Smoky Mountains! We visit the area several times a year. It is a nice touristy destination and the mountain scenes are beautiful, no matter what time of the year you visit.  It was my birthday  (16th of July) I ask my husband and my parent's to ride the Wheel with me. I found $2 off coupons for tickets, yet I think the $12/person is still pretty expensive for an 8-minute ride. It's located in Pigeon Forge, TN. You can park in the new parking lot and then get on a tram to get to this Margaritaville Island.  

It's a smooth ride giving you a great view of the Smokies and of course the sights below - the goings on at the Island in Pigeon Forge, the dancing waters, and families strolling about like little ants. The gondola can fit 4-5 people comfortably . There's an 'emergency red button' to push if there's an emergency.

Towering 200 feet-tall, the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel sits at the foot of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. As the centerpiece to the Island in Pigeon Forge, it stands as one of the tallest attractions in the Southeast.
