While snow tubing is probably the last thing you would expect to find during the summer months, you can now enjoy this exciting activity year-round at the all new Pigeon Forge Snow! This indoor snow tubing facility features an entire hill of snow tubing runs with real snow that never melts away, even in the heat of July! As if that wasn’t enough, Pigeon Forge Snow even offers a huge Snow Play area where kids can build snowmen and snow forts. The best part is that you don’t have to worry about getting too cold inside of the building because the temperature is kept at a comfortable temperature between 60 and 70 degrees.


3. Water Slides at Ober Gatlinburg

For a great way to cool off during the summer months, drive or take the Aerial Tramway to Ober Gatlinburg. Once at the top of the mountain, you will find the Blue Cyclone Rapids, Shoot-the-Chute and Lightnin’ water slides for your entertainment! Although it’s not necessary to wear a swimsuit on these slides, be prepared for plenty of splashing that just might get you soaked! After cooling off on the slides, check out some of the other awesome attractions at Ober Gatlinburg such as the Ski Mountain Coaster, Alpine Slide and the Wildlife Encounter!
