Located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, The Island is an entertainment, dining, and shopping destination that aims to give families a multitude of entertainment options.  The location just announced a brand new, $20 million flying theater attraction that is scheduled to open in 2020.

The Island already offers many rides and activities, including the massive Great Smoky Mountain Wheel, a ropes course, fountain show, family roller coaster, bumper cars, a 7-D dark ride and more.  There are dozens of shops at the Island, along with restaurants such as Paula Deen's Family Kitchen and Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.

The new flying theater will "combine a state-of-the-art ride system and a custom film featuring some of the nation’s most beautiful natural wonders and iconic landmarks."  The experience is being created by Dynamic Attractions, which has provided ride hardware to some of the biggest names in the theme park industry.

“We are very excited to bring another premier attraction to The Island in Pigeon Forge,” said Island President Bob McManus. “This flying theater will truly be a one-of-a-kind, immersive entertainment experience. From The Island, guests will be transported to places that they otherwise may never have the opportunity to see, and experience the beauty of America in a unique and unforgettable way.”
