The Tomb Adventure, which is located at Walden’s Landing in Pigeon Forge, is an interactive Egyptian themed problem-solving expedition. The unique pyramid-shaped building is easy to spot from the Parkway and houses one of Pigeon Forge’s newest attractions. If you are a fan of Indiana Jones, the special effects and visual appearance of The Tomb Pigeon Forge will make you feel right at home.
Once you purchase your tickets, your wait can vary greatly depending on the time of day and the season. The expeditions depart every fifteen minutes and each group only has 10 to 15 participants. During peak seasons, reservations are highly recommended to reduce your wait time.
Shortly after the tour begins, you will find yourself trapped deep inside of Pharaoh’s tomb. The only way to escape the tomb is to solve a series of interactive puzzles. The puzzles encourage teamwork and require a wide range of skills including music, logic, and strength. Each time your group solves one of the interactive puzzles, you will be presented with an equally challenging puzzle in a new room. The Disneyesque qualities of the guides combined with the special effects make for a fun (but cheesy) experience.
Since The Tomb Adventure requires teamwork and participation from everyone, it can be a little awkward if you get paired with people that are “too cool” to participate.
Families and groups should definitely consider The Tomb Adventure. However, Children under 7 may have difficulty understanding and solving the puzzles. In addition, the Pharaoh’s voice, people screaming, and the darkness can be scary for young children.
Keep in mind that the “expedition” only lasts 45 minutes and the enjoyment of your experience will vary greatly depending on the quality of your guide and the participation of your group.
This is a great attraction to save for a rainy day or combine with a meal. Walden’s Landing has several great restaurants including Smoky Mountain Brewery and Five Guys.
The Tomb attraction in Pigeon Forge is located near Traffic Light #2B at Walden’s Landing Town Center.
