3 New Things to Try at The Island in Pigeon Forge

We are constantly growing here at The Island in Pigeon Forge to bring new restaurants, attractions and shops to our guests. This year, we’ve added a number of new shops, and lately, we just keep expanding! If you’re planning a Pigeon Forge vacation, don’t forget to check out the newest additions to our property!

  1. Bumper Cars – Located directly inside the Island Mirror Maze, the new bumper cars offer a great option for guests looking for family fun that’s fit for kids and adults to enjoy together! Neon lights and an electric bumper car arena make this classic attraction a must-do while visiting. 


  1. Miner’s Gems – Miner’s Gems is a fun, interactive, yet relaxing activity for guests of all ages. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to put real gemstones in your hands! Select a bag of mining rough enriched with real gemstones from around the world. Place part of the rough from the bag in a screen bottom box. Dip the box in the running water and watch the gems appear! Our guests are loving it so far!


  1. Paula Deen’s The Bag Lady – Serving up sandwiches, salads and sweets, The Bag Lady is the perfect spot to enjoy a quick lunch or a dessert before heading out to see everything The Island has to offer. The Bag Lady serves classic sandwiches such as pimento cheese and chicken salad and also healthier salad options. Don’t forget to grab a cookie or a piece of Paula’s famous Ooey Gooey Butter Cake to go!


These are just a few of the things you and your family can enjoy while here at The Island in Pigeon Forge. If you’re visiting with us soon, be sure to check out our map to help you plan your perfect vacation to the Smokies!
