Titanic Sets Sail for Pigeon Forge
The group which brought the spectacular Titanic museum to Branson, MO have purchased a wonderful site for the same type attraction in Pigeon Forge. Just last month the Titanic Tennessee LLC purchased a total of a little over 5 acres of land on the parkway in Pigeon Forge just south of the Black Bear Jamboree for $4.2 million. This is an ideal site exactly half way between the I40 407 exit in the Kodak area and the Sugarlands Visitors Center at the entrance to the National Park just outside of Gatlinburg. The new museum will likely be at least a half scale replica of the famous ship and will certainly become immediately one of the premier draws in the Pigeon Forge area and for that matter all of Sevier county.
After speaking with several individuals close to the transaction I am even more impressed than at first about what this means for our area here in the East Tennessee Smoky Mountains. The website for the new venture was registered on August 13, 2006 so they obviously have been at work planning this for quite a while. What we have needed for some time is more premier attractions in addition to the ones that we have had for some time like the music theaters and of course Dollywood. With the advent of the Gatlinburg Ripleys Aquarium, the Wonder Works Exhibit, and now the new Titanic Museum we are setting the stage for even more new projects that will just increase the number of reasons that guests have to visit Sevier County. With more visitors annually our local businesses will be even more successful and the area will continue to prosper.
