THE NEXT ADVENTURE BEGINS TODAY IN PIGEON FORGE
200 foot tall Mountain Monster three-in-one thrill ride anchors The Mountain Mile retail and family entertainment development.
PIGEON FORGE, Tennessee, August 23, 2019 – The Mountain Monster, a 200 foot tall three-in-one thrill ride, opened today (Aug. 23) at The Tower Shops at The Mountain Mile. The ride anchors the new 150,000 square foot multi-purpose retail and family entertainment development at 2655 Teaster Lane in Pigeon Forge.
Offering sweeping views of the Great Smoky Mountains, The Mountain Monster is designed and built by Stan Checketts, a nationally renowned attraction inventor and amusement industry legend.
“I’ve designed ride concepts all over the world, but I am particularly excited about The Mountain Monster. This setting has a unique combination of incredible views and a vibrant market of family entertainment,” stated Checketts. “This fits perfectly with our goal to provide the most exciting experience for thrill seekers.”
The Mountain Mile developers also announced The Tower Shops’ first retail partners. REI, Junction 35 Spirits, Mountain Rifle Coffee Company, Cream & Sugar Sweet Shoppe, Currahee Vineyards, Mountain Mile General Store, and Appalachian Apparel are confirmed. Additional dining and retail concepts are expected to be announced soon.
“Growing up in East Tennessee, Pigeon Forge was a very special place to me as a child. I feel extremely fortunate to be part of a project of this significance and I’m proud of what we’ve achieved. We’ve cultivated a great initial mix of retail, dining, and entertainment and there are plenty more big announcements coming in the near future,” said developer Dixon Greenwood. “Our goal is to elevate the experience in Pigeon Forge – literally! The Mountain Monster is the tallest commercial structure in the market, and it’s exciting to partner with a legend like Stan to bring this one of a kind attraction to The Tower Shops at the Mountain Mile.
