  1. Pigeon Forge Snow

  1. Flyaway Indoor Skydiving

Featuring America’s first vertical wind tunnel, Flyaway Indoor Skydiving aims to give people the experience of skydiving in a safe environment without the fear of heights. You don’t need any experience to body fly here as the instructors will train you and remain in the wind tunnel for your flying session.

  1. Crave Golf Club

Miniature golf is pretty popular in the Smokies, but poor weather could ruin an afternoon of putt-putt with the fam. Instead, play mini-golf indoors along a fun candy-themed (handicap accessible) course with 19 holes at Crave Golf Club. They even have escape rooms, miniature bowling, and a sweets shop!
