Inscription.  When Pigeon Forge began transforming itself from a quiet farming community into one focused on tourism, the town adopted the slogan “Action-Packed.” It’s an appropriate description evidenced by the diversity and sheer number of attractions that have come and gone through the years. Some of those included Adventure Golf, Wild Wheels and Water Bugs, Monza’s Grand Prix Racing, Jungle Cargo, Baby Animal Kingdom, Mountain Ocean, and Fairyland, which operated in the 1960s and early 1970s near this marker at present-day 4050 Parkway (just before light #10).

Other attractions included Fort Weare Game Park, Magic World, Porpoise Island, Tommy Bartlett's Water Circus, Ogle's Water Park and Rebel Railroad that has been through several incarnations including today's very popular Tennessee attraction - Dollywood.

All of these attractions have contributed to Pigeon Forge's "Action-Packed" past and created a family destination for today offering a little something for everyone.
Erected 2018 by City of Pigeon Forge.
