Construction has begun on the newest attraction to the Pigeon Forge market which will open soon.  The Mountain Monster will feature three rides from a 200-foot tower overlooking the Smoky Mountains.  The Mountain Monster will be designed, built and operated by Stan Checketts, a nationally renowned attractions inventor.

“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 and safe experience for thrill seekers.”

The Mountain Monster will be centered in The Tower Shops at Mountain Mile, a multi-purpose retail and family entertainment development located on Teaster Lane in the heart of Pigeon Forge shopping and dining.  The property borders The Island and Cal Ripken Baseball, and the owners are currently recruiting and negotiating with dining and retail concepts that are new to the market.
