5 Cost Effective Kid Activities

Vacations are always a fun family time. Although usually, mom and dad are looking for some rest and relaxation, while the kids want to constantly be in the midst of fun activities. Pigeon Forge has so many great attractions that have multiple activities under one roof, that will not break the piggy bank. Saving time and money is always a plus!

WonderWorks– This “amusement park for the mind” is definitely a place full of fun and your ticket is good to come and go on the same day until they close. You can leisurely wander through the exhibits, climb on the glow-in-the-dark ropes course, catch a Wonders of Magic show, and even play a game of lazer tag…all under one roof. With exhibits like a bubble lab, a far out art gallery, and a light and sound zone, kids can be creative and daring for hours. The VIP combo ticket is the best bang for your buck!

Hollywood Wax Museum– Here you can stroll around at your own pace and take selfies with all the “stars.” Some of the exhibits even have props to make picture taking more fun. Afterwards, you can go be adventurous in Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors, the Castle of Chaos 5D thrill ride, and the Outbreak zombie experience. The All Access pass saves you money and you get to do the exhibits in whatever order you like.

Magiquest– 4 attractions, one stop, and less than $20 a ticket!! In Magiquest, kids can be a Magi and wander through an enchanted world with an interactive wand in hand to complete quests and adventures. Then, they can head downstairs and play some blacklight miniature golf, wonder through the Odyssey mirror maze, and race against the clock to navigate lazers in the Vault. There is so much fun to be had in this cool looking castle.

TopJump– This is one of the newest attractions to Pigeon Forge for 2016. Kids can play in the trampoline park, do some climbing in the Clip ‘n Climb area, get a treat at the Sugar Rush candy store, or play in the 5,000 square foot arcade. The trampoline park has an area for open jump, a ninja obstacle course, basketball, dodgeball, a gladiator pit, and an air bag, so plenty of bouncing to burn off lots of energy. Clip ‘n Climb offers activities for all levels, complete with a Stairway to Heaven as well as some very vibrant climbing walls. They even thought about the parents when building this attraction….there are plenty of comfy chairs, televisions and free Wifi so that you can relax while they kids play.

The Track– It is a family recreation center with rides and activities for everyone. There is go-kart tracks, miniature golf, an arcade, bumper boats, and even some thrill rides- bungee jumping and the SkyFlyer. The little ones (ages 8 and under) have their own special area- Kids Country- with rides that are suited for just their size. You can save 10% by purchasing your tickets online.

Kid approved, an abundance of entertainment, and budget friendly is only a few of the reasons Pigeon Forge is the Center of Fun in the Smokies!!
