Experience SkyFly at The Island in Pigeon Forge


Swoop and soar across the country’s beautiful landmarks on SkyFly: Soar America, the newest adventure ride in Pigeon Forge!

This thrilling experience feels like you’re gliding over everything from the Grand Canyon to Niagara Falls, complete with the wind in your hair and mist on your face. Here’s what to expect on this unusual ride located at The Island in Pigeon Forge.


TAKE OFF FOR ADVENTURE

Before you even settle into your seat, your trip begins. As you wait to board an imaginary steampunk airship, you’ll become immersed in the story of a father and daughter team of inventors taking you on this wild flight. Learn about their travels and the fantasy flight you’ll experience.

The stunning technology of SkyFly: Soar America will take your breath away. Your seat on the 50-ton platform suspends you, feet dangling, in front of a vast, spherical screen giving the illusion of an endless horizon around you. Your seat will rock and tilt as you “fly” around the country virtually. As the flight begins, prepare yourself for anything.


TOUR AMERICA BY AIR

You’ll feel the cool mists of Niagara Falls. The swampy scents of the Florida Everglades tickle your nose. Relish the tropical Hawaiian breezes, the thrill of sailing toward Mount Rushmore, and the natural glories of Yellowstone! The sensation of flying over these national treasures in just minutes will astound you. Destinations include the redwood groves of California, Alaskan fjords, Yosemite National Park, and the Great Smoky Mountains right outside!

Making your flight possible is a unique film, recorded specially for the Pigeon Forge SkyFly by helicopters and drones. You can’t experience this all-American airship trip anywhere except here at The Island.


OPEN UNTIL LATE

The SkyFly experience takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete, but the memories last a lifetime. SkyFly is great for a morning activity with the kids, an afternoon break from shopping, or a late-night date because it’s open from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m. There’s no age limit, but riders must be at least 55 inches tall. If you’re running late and miss your flight, the staff will put you on the next available trip.

SkyFly: Soar America is at The Island, your one-stop destination for attractions, rides, dining, and shopping. Eat at restaurants including Margaritaville, Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, and Mellow Mushroom pizza. Shop at more than 40 boutiques. Play escape room games or arcade games, then enjoy the amusement park rides.
