1. Ripley’s Attractions
The Ripley attractions are a large portion of what Gatlinburg has to offer for families. Global Vacation Ventures points out that there is the Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, Ripley's Moving theater, Ripley's Super Fun Zone, Ripley's Marvelous Mirror Maze and Candy Factory, the iconic Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum, and plenty more. These attractions are perfect for travelers of all ages, and are both indoors and outdoors, so there is always something to do, rain or shine.
Another popular family activity in Gatlinburg is mini golf. Global Vacation Ventures recommends that parents spend a few moments looking over the various courses and figuring out which theme the kids are the most interested in. The Ripley's Davy Crockett Mini Golf course is based around the folklore legend, Davy Crockett, and features larger-than-life critters blocking the putter's shots. Treasure Quest Golf puts players in a course of treasure hunting adventure and mystery. Some of the holes are entirely in black-light. Circus Golf is fully in 3D Blacklight, and is half circus funhouse and half mini-golf course.
3. Gatlinburg Sky Lift
One of the most popular attractions at Gatlinburg is the Gatlinburg Sky Lift, which lifts guests off the ground and carries them right up the mountainside. Global Vacation Ventures points out that at 18,000 feet, the vantage point is the perfect place for a family photo opportunity. At the top of the mountain is the Ober Gatlinburg amusement park which features indoor ice skating, an animal encounter, rides, and games. This is a great attraction for families to spend a day enjoying together.
