Sevierville is home to a wide array of indoor and outdoor attractions, both of which ensure that you and your loved ones will be entertained regardless of the current weather conditions. When the weather cooperates, however, it’s wise to make the most of the region’s stunning scenery. Several exciting activities and amenities allow you to do just that, as detailed below:
1. Legacy Mountain Ziplines
Observe stunning Smoky Mountain vistas from a brand new vantage point: flying far above ground at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. With a seven-line course spanning two miles and lasting well over two hours, Legacy Mountain Ziplines offers plenty of opportunities for thrills. Guests enjoy the rope bridges nearly as much as they enjoy the ziplines themselves, in part because these features allow them to slow down and truly experience the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Safety is clearly a priority, so all lines and equipment are checked on a regular basis.
2. Jayell Ranch Ziplining & Horseback Riding
Check multiple outdoor activities off your bucket list at Jayell Ranch, where you can explore the beauty of the Smoky Mountains from new heights or while on horseback. ATV and UTV tours are also available. If you’re feeling brave, however, you’ll definitely want to try the zipline, which is one of the longest of its type in the Smoky Mountains. Zipline adventures occur on a first-come, first-serve basis; show up early to ensure the shortest possible wait. All activities are led by well-trained guides, who understand the importance of both safety and having fun in the great outdoors.
3. Kyker Farms Corn Maze
Fall fun awaits at Kyker Farms, which has been owned and operated by the beloved Kyker family for nine generations. As the ultimate family business, it boasts a decidedly welcoming atmosphere. Make the most of autumn whimsy as you navigate the corn maze and hang out in the pumpkin patch. Hop on a hayride to witness an agricultural take on the beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Stop by after dark on a Saturday evening to see a whole new side of the farm, complete with spooky decor and thrilling nighttime adventures. Top evening activities include zombie-themed paintball and a haunted corn maze.
4. Foxfire Mountain Adventure Park
Ziplines, climbing walls, rope courses, extreme ATVs…all kinds of thrills can be found at the Foxfire Mountain Adventure Park. Foxfire’s popular Waterfall Canopy Tour takes you over the stunning Lost Mine Falls with seven lines and two sky bridges. An abbreviated version of the adventure is available for those short on time. The Goliath Tour earns its name by offering a high-flying adventure with speeds reaching 55 miles per hour. For a decidedly different experience, hop on the Bear Crawler ATV or explore the Bridge to Prosperity.
Adult visitors will be thrilled not only by the ATVs and zip lines but also by the onsite craft cidery — a unique find in Tennessee. Stop in for taste testing or to purchase a soft or hard cider. There’s no better way to relax after hours of outdoor adventure. If you’re feeling hungry, hit up Zippin’ Pigs Snack Shack for a tasty treat.
5. Smoky Mountain Deer Farm
Animal lovers adore the Smoky Mountain Deer Farm, which ups the ante on the petting zoo concept. This unique attraction brings a variety of adorable and majestic critters to Sevierville, including camels, reindeer, emu, and miniature horses. The deer for which the farm is named are graceful and friendly. You and your loved ones are encouraged to walk among them. If you’re lucky, you’ll even have the opportunity to feed the deer by hand.
Riding stables are also located onsite. The farm’s trusty horses are specifically trained to handle new or ‘rusty’ riders, who may feel less than confident. Encouraging staff members make every effort to make riders of all ages comfortable. The attraction’s shaded and well-maintained trails are navigated slowly by the horses to ensure an enjoyable experience.
6. Wahoo Ziplines
Yet another excellent zipline, Wahoo Ziplines is named for the sound you’ll surely make while flying through the sky above Sevierville. Home to six lines ranging from 500 to 1,600 feet long, this attraction appeals greatly to the adventurers with all levels of zipline experience. Beginners, in particular, appreciate this destination, as its heights and speeds are slightly lower than some of its Smoky Mountain counterparts. All riders undergo a thorough safety training session prior to hitting the lines. This ensures that everybody feels prepared and confident.
7. Christmas Place
Sevierville’s Christmas Place may be best known for its extensive selection of holiday gifts and collectibles, but the fun can start long before you enter the store. Outside, you will find a true holiday spectacle, complete with lush landscaping and plenty of fountains. Set aside some time to stroll around Bell Tower Square and take in the scenery before you head into the store for a satisfying shopping session. Depending on when you arrive, you just might encounter one of the Christmas Place’s many sidewalk sales.
8. Ripley’s Old MacDonald’s Farm Mini-Golf
A whimsical representation of farm life, this adorable mini-golf course features not only several courses but also several goofy barnyard animals — complete with sound effects for a memorable experience. The available courses accommodate all ages and levels. The grounds are invariably clean and carefully maintained, with debris rarely present even on busy days. Once you’ve had your fill of mini-golf, hit up the arcade for fun games such as Guitar Hero, Wheel of Fortune, and Deal or No Deal.
There’s no shortage of options for keeping entertained outside as you explore Sevierville. Make the most of the beautiful weather and visit one of the region’s many outdoor attractions.
