The three newest attractions in Pigeon Forge are hosting a Triple Treat Local Appreciation Weekend, benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains. From Friday, Oct. 26 through Sunday, Oct. 28, people who live or work in Sevier County can experience the Hollywood Wax Museum, Castle of Chaos, and Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors for $10 per adult and $5 per child (ages 4-11), with 100% of the admissions going to the local Boys & Girls Club.
“We believe in giving back to the communities where we have attractions,” says Tej Sundher, a partner in the family business that owns and operates the landmark facilities on the hill at Showplace and Parkway.
“The Boys & Girls Club is a healthy, positive place for kids to do homework and activities and to develop friendships and confidence that will last a lifetime. The services they provide are priceless, and we are happy to do what we can to support them,” says Sundher.
According to Boys & Girls Club Chief Professional Officer, Mark Ross, “If you’ve been curious to see what’s inside that building with the huge ape on the tower and what’s happening in the giant castle next door, October 26-28 is the time to check it out. The funds we receive from donated admissions will help guide kids in Sevier County to become productive, caring and responsible citizens.”
While the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center offers a Local Appreciation rate of 50% off year-round, the facility is extending the lower Triple Treat price during this particular weekend to celebrate its official Grand Opening and to raise as much as possible for the Boys & Girls Club.
Residents and employees of companies in Sevier County will be asked to show valid local IDs or current paystubs to purchase the special Triple Treat Local Appreciation admissions. The trio of fun-filled attractions will be open from 9 am to 11 pm on all three days.
The Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center, open 365 days a year, is located at 106 Showplace Boulevard, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863. For more information, call (865) 428-5228 or visit www.hollywoodwaxentertainment.com or www.facebook.com/hollywoodwaxmuseum.

Major driving routes through the center of Pigeon Forge have the brightest fall foliage. The Smoky Mountains have “colored up” throughout the week and are just past their peak. There is still a lot of green in Pigeon Forge. The Chimney Tops are at a high elevation and past peak color, but you can continue to enjoy the remaining deep golds and bright yellows against an evergreen backdrop.

Plan a color-filled day letting the kids explore the exciting attractions along the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. Look up at the Smoky Mountains to see blazes of red and orange and deep plum. Local music and festivals can be found on every corner.

Nothing says autumn like the smell of smoky barbeque. Pigeon Forge restaurants are vacationer's dream. Find mouthwatering and smoky selections on the menu of Bennett's, Tony Romas, and Alamo Steakhouse.

Perhaps it is not food you crave. Maybe you're the type of person who craves adventure. Many Pigeon Forge rafting and zipline companies are open throughout the remainder of the fall. Rafting in the Smokies specializes in late-season rafting.

Challenge yourself and think of ziplining as new way to experience the fall leaf colors. Discover the spectacular raw beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains as most people have never seen them before. Start off at Adventure Ziplines of Pigeon Forge surrounded by mountain mist then prepare to be amazed as you blaze through leaves of autumn red and orange.

Laughing until we had tears. I’ve never seen anything like the look on my kids’ faces when we drove down the Parkway past Pigeon Forge attractions. Our hotel was so vibrant and the staff was upbeat and helpful. Pigeon Forge is the brightest spot in the Smoky Mountains. The high energy (and clean language) shows we saw in theaters had everyone in my family clapping their hands…even “sour” Uncle George.
