Designed with the atmosphere of a charming mountain village, The Island Entertainment Complex has more than 60 retail and specialty shops, a number of popular restaurants, rides and games, dancing fountains, live music, and much more. The best part is you don't even need to hop in your car to get there; it's a short walk from the Inn.
THE ISLAND SHOW FOUNTAIN
The show fountain is a magical combination of water dance and light, choreographed to popular music. Shows play approximately every 30 minutes, 10 am - 11:30 pm daily, beginning at the top of the hour each hour. There are rocking chairs located around the entire fountain, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN WHEEL
A ride in the 200-foot tall observation wheel is a fabulous way to experience the breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains. All glass, climate-controlled gondolas seat up to eight guests each. Open daily from 10 am to 11 pm.
