It's sad but true that in the same breath I can say I loathe Pigeon Forge BUT am also pretty intrigued by the fact that someone is building a life-size Titanic there.
I won't get into all the ins and outs of why Pigeon Forge is an atrocity; you either agree or disagree. But people, LIFE SIZE TITANIC!
Maybe it's not as cool as I think it's going to be, but upon visiting, one will have the experience of actually being a passenger on the ship. There is even an ice wall you can touch. Ooooo!
They plan on opening in the spring of 2010 and admission will be somewhere around $25. It may be the only thing that lures me to spend some time in that area. Well, that... aaaand the Apple Barn Restaurant.
