If you are looking for the perfect family attraction in Pigeon Forge, Rowdy Bear Ridge features things to do for people of all ages! We thrive in making our park unique by offering adventures you can not find anywhere else in the area. Here are 4 of the activities to experience at Rowdy Bear Ridge in Pigeon Forge:
1. Thrilling Tubing Hill
Our Pigeon Forge location is home to Tennessee’s first and fastest Outdoor Tubing Hill. The hill is over 500 feet long and features a 70-foot drop. At the middle point of the slide, you can reach speeds up to 35 miles per hour! If you are a little hesitant to ride alone, you can hook your tube up to one or two of your friends and family’s tubes and ride together on a connected thrill ride. Another unique feature of our Tubing Hill is that you don’t have to hike back up the hill once you are done riding. Instead, just grab your tube and let the magic carpet conveyor belt take you back to the top. This makes it easier to ride again and again without wasting your time and energy lugging your inner tube back up the hill. While the hill is an amazing experience during the day, you can also ride it at night because the lanes are lit up with dozens of LED lights. The Tubing Hill is just one of the things to do while at Rowdy Bear Ridge in Pigeon Forge!
2. Spectacular Avalanche Snow Coaster
The Avalanche Snow Coaster at Rowdy Bear Ridge is the best way to speed through the Smoky Mountains or take a peaceful ride. That’s right, you control how fast you want your coaster to go! If you want to zoom through the course at the highest speed, just push the handle forward as much as possible. If you are looking for a slower and more peaceful experience, just twist the handle backwards to slow down. The ability to control your own speed makes this a great ride for every member of the family, even those who are a little less adventurous. No matter how fast you decide to go, you will still experience the ride of a lifetime on our Avalanche Snow Coaster in Pigeon Forge.
3. Ski Lift Shootout Coaster
As the first Alpine Flyer in North America, our Ski Lift Shootout Coaster is a spectacular attraction you can only find at our Pigeon Forge location. The coaster is a two-seater so you can ride along with a family member. As you wind your way through multiple twists and turns, try your best to keep your focus and shoot the targets to reach the highest score possible. This is a great family ride because you can challenge your fellow rider to see who scores the most points. Come and test out your sharpshooter skills with the all new coaster experience!
4. Outdoor Axe Throwing
You have seen the old movies where the lumberjacks can just toss an axe and stick it to a tree stump in the middle of the woods. Well, come test out to see if you have what it takes to hang with the lumberjacks. Don’t be shocked if it takes you more than one try. Our Axe Throwing activity features a piece of wood with a bull’s eye painted right in the middle. Test out your strength and precision to see if you can hit the mark. If you have never been axe throwing before, we have a trained worker there at all times to help you with your technique to make you a professional!
