A new attraction is coming to Pigeon Forge from the mind of Stan Checketts. The concept art and description makes its final design and the attractions included a little questionable, but it looks like a combo tower with several elements!
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.
About The Tower Shops at Mountain Mile The Tower Shops at Mountain Mile is a 180,000 square foot multi-purpose retail and family entertainment development located in the heart of the Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

This is a great addition for Pigeon Forge. The one at Foxwoods lacks the zipline and is 80 feet smaller, but both those rides were insane. I'd be excited to try larger versions.

^^If it's the full Triple Tower they were advertising at IAAPA a few years back, the third ride is actually supposed to be their dive ride (kind of like a Skycoaster, if it had seats and loaded at the top). One of the awesome parts of the Triple Tower version is that the drop tower pulls double duty as an elevator to access the dive ride's platform, which means after that ride you could choose to have another freefall back down to ground level (dive ride demo at 1:15, drop demo at 4:40):
The dive ride on its own is a ton of fun, but having the option of the drop tower immediately after should make this an awesome one-two punch.
