Smoky Mountain Adventure Weekend

Please note: transportation will not be provided for this event

Are you looking for summer fun? Now is your time to enjoy 3 nights in Gatlinburg, TN plus one of the following three exciting adventures! Receive two tickets to a full day of rafting, splash and zip or paddle and saddle! If you choose to take on rafting, you’ll enjoy a full day of class III rapids. Don’t worry if you have no experience, let an experienced guide lead the way. You’ll enjoy time well-spent between paddling in the water, the views of the mountains and enjoying the sunshine.

If you’d rather do something else before you take on the whitewater rapids, saddle up! Enjoy a 6-mile ride on horseback as you enjoy mountain views, ride through the streams of local mountains and then head to a 5.5 mile upper section of whitewater rafting!

Not sure about horseback riding but still want to take on the rapids? We’ve got the perfect package! Choose splash and zip and enjoy an early morning zipline adventure on Legacy Mountain. You’ll take on the height of up to 300 feet and enjoy 4.5 miles of lines before heading over to a rafting trip on the Pigeon Forge river of 5.5 miles.

No matter what adventure you choose, you’ll experience three nights in Gatlinburg, TN at River Terrace Resort & Convention Center. This amazing getaway also includes a VIP check-in, welcome reception with dinner, open bar, DJ and prizes, personal concierge service and a late check-out on your final day!
