Get It in Gear with Smoky Mountains Racetracks
When most people think of the Smoky Mountains, visions of snowcapped peaks, ski slopes, whitewater rafting and horseback riding come to mind. But when you've got a group of adventure seekers who have a need for speed, you'll want to hit some of the many racetracks in the area.
The Track in Pigeon Forge
The name says it all! But The Track is more than a mere go-cart track. It also offers a wide range of fun activities for the entire family.

Rather putt than cruise? Gator Golf will challenge you with creative and exciting obstacles including jungle animals, waterfalls and tunnels. For those who want to get wet and wild, hop into a bumper boat complete with water cannons! Bumper cars are also available. But the ultimate thrills come from bungee jumping or the Skyflyer - a skydiving simulator. The little ones are sure to enjoy a child-size working train, Red Baron plane, Ferris wheel and other rides.
