3.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Take a ride on 61 m (200 ft) The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel at the base of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. If Ferris wheels scare you, don't worry. This ride is smooth, and you are completely enclosed in glass while relaxing in one of the 42 gondolas, which can hold up to eight people. You'll take in scenic views of Pigeon Forge and the mountains surrounding it from the top of this ride. You can combine your ride with a trip to Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies for a discount on both attractions. If you decide to take a ride at after dark, marvel at the million LED lights that illuminate the wheel at night.
