  1. Doc’s Magic Shop:   Whether he’s walking around making guests laugh or in his shop teaching a magic class, Doc Waddell and his team are always providing free entertainment on The Island. Every Saturday, Doc’s Magic Shop also hosts a free magic class from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.
  1. Make Your Own Pottery:   Alewine Pottery is a local family business that has been in the area for more than 30 years. At The Island in Pigeon Forge, Alewine’s store is outfitted with a “Make Your Own” pottery station where your kids can try their hand at the wheel, and create their own piece of art to take home.
  1. Arcade City:   From classic arcade games to new, interactive experiences, Arcade City provides one of the best stops for kids here at The Island. Arcade City is a modern, family-friendly arcade that uses reloadable play cards – which means no tokens or tickets to keep track of! Just a whole lot of fun and prizes to be won!
  1. Old Time Photo:   Playing dress-up has always been a favorite for children. At Old Time Photo, you and your family can take a step back in time and dress up in costumes from decades past. Choose from different outfits, props, and settings in the shop, and a photographer will take pictures to serve as keepsakes for you and your little ones!
