At Junction 35, our goal is to create a fun and friendly environment in the Smokies where you and all your friends can come and hang out while enjoying great food and drinks. Start your evening off with a trip to our sampling counter, where anyone over the age of 21 can partake in the tasting of some of our most popular spirits, including a variety of different moonshines and whiskeys. Once you have decided on your favorite, you can spend the rest of the evening drinking and relax with your friends. We also have plenty of menu options at our restaurant for when you get hungry, including an array of appetizers, BBQ trays, burgers, salads, and much more! 

2. Test Your Wits at an Escape Game

If you are exploring Pigeon Forge with a group, there are a multitude of great activities that everyone will enjoy. One of the best group activities is an escape game. Just steps from Junction 35 Spirits, you’ll find Escapology, Pigeon Forge’s best premium real-life escape game experience! You and your group will work together to find clues, solve puzzles, and unlock locks that will free you from the room. Some of the themed rooms are Scooby-Doo and the Spooky Castle, Mansion Murder, and Who Stole Mona, just to name a few!

3. Enjoy the Mountain Monster

If you’re looking for unique thrills, you’ll love the Mountain Monster! Located by Junction 35 Spirits, you’ll find this attraction that offers visitors 3 thrill rides to try. There’s the Monster Fall, which is a 200’ drop ride with only a lap belt and nothing to hold onto! Then, you’ll have the Monster Launch, where you and your friend will sit back-to-back on a saddle-like seat and be launched straight up 170’ in the air. Don’t get too comfortable though, this ride has a few tricks up its sleeve! Last but not least is the Monster Dive, a premier attraction that only has one other like it in the world! Take a 2-seat elevator to the top of the tower, where you’ll get strapped in the dive cart. The platform will open and riders will be tilted straight down so they’re facing the ground before being released and left to experience a free fall before swinging over water and getting gorgeous views of the Smokies and Pigeon Forge! We dare you to try all three — but we won’t judge you if you need to have a couple drinks with us first to get up the courage! 

4. See a Comedy Show

The Smoky Mountains is home to some of the best comedy shows in the country that will have you rolling in the aisles all night long. If you are traveling with a large group, these shows are a great opportunity to have a unique experience with your friends and family, and many of the shows in Pigeon Forge also provide a group discount. One of the hottest shows on the Parkway is The Comedy Barn, which features a little something for everyone, such as barnyard animals, magicians, jugglers, ventriloquists, stand-up comedians, and much more! As you take in the action on stage, you will quickly see why this is one of the best things to do in Pigeon Forge for adults. 

A trip to our distillery is definitely one of the top things to do in Pigeon Forge for adults. Learn more about our Pigeon Forge restaurant as you plan your next trip to the Smokies! We look forward to seeing you soon!
