Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark is home to the largest outdoor tubing hill in Tennessee!

The tubing hill is 500 feet long with a 70 foot drop and offers both snow tubing (with REAL snow!) and summer tubing.

There are a total of 11 tubing lanes and two Magic Carpet Conveyors that take visitors to the top of the hill!

In addition to tubing, this Pigeon Forge attraction is home to the Ski Lift Shootout Coaster, the country’s first alpine flyer!

It’s a two-seated suspended coaster that swings, dips, and soars through air as riders have to try to shoot the targets along the way.

Rowdy Bear’s Smoky Mountain Snowpark also features axe throwing, a playground, and Sugar Bears Café & Creamery.
