One of the most unique and attention-getting parkway attractions between Sevierville and Pigeon Forge (and with that same street having King Kong, a Hollywood Mount Rushmore, the Titanic hitting an iceberg and an upside-down White House, that’s really saying something) is getting a major new addition with the “FlyRide” attraction coming to Beyond The Lens in Sevier County. That’s the attraction with the giant hands and camera. Oh, and the other large building that’s been toppled over.


The best information on Beyond The Lens and its new addition with FlyRide comes from its own website, and we’ll let their official information take over on this article from here. Take a look:

Packed with over 150 interactive exhibits, including a four-story-high, state-of-the-art flying adventure!

You are going to love the endless Instagram-worthy photo ops, virtual reality rides, a hunt for Big Foot, interactive games – including 2-minute escape rooms – a pop culture walkthrough from the 1960s through today, and so much more.
