“After great success with our first FlyRide in Branson, we are excited to bring this attraction to Pigeon Forge,” said Robin Turner of Frontpage Attractions, LLC, the parent company of Beyond The Lens and FlyRide. “Our partnership with SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment and the MacGillivray Freeman Films has allowed us to deliver this world-class attraction to the Smoky Mountains. This is truly the ultimate in ‘Techno-Tainment’ where guests experience entertainment through technology.”

The attraction is housed inside a new part of Beyond The Lens! entertainment center called “Hangar X,” a project that took more than five years to develop and cost $12 million to complete. The attraction’s curved screen stands four stories high and features the latest 4K projection technology, creating a 60-foot-wide immersive image.

FlyRide tickets are $19.99 for adults and $14.99 for kids (must be at least 32” tall to ride). Combo tickets are also available for $36.99 (adults) and $24.99 (kids), allowing guests to also enjoy Beyond The Lens!, which features interactive exhibits, virtual reality, escape games, and more.
