Ideas for big group activites?

This summer I'm trying to put together a family reunion. We will have about 25 people spanning all ages. We won't all be staying at the same place, though a few of us will have cabins and we're already planning some cook-outs and movie nights. What are some other good activities in PF/Gatlinburg that we could do together?

You could have a picnic in the National Park. I would recommend the Metcalf Bottoms picnic area: plenty of picnic tables if you get there early enough, and the river is right there (and shallow) for wading. There's also a short hike from the picnic area that goes to the Little Greenbrier school.

Dollywood would be a great idea if you like theme parks.

Ripley's aquaruim is nice, but we found it absolutely packed when we went. Might be hard to keep a bigger group together. Maybe if you went as soon as it opens it wouldn't be so crowded.

There's Splash Country waterpark in Pigeon Forge.

I second the park. Maybe take a few of the smaller kids on a waterfall hike and maybe the older kids/young adults can do a more strenous hike with a great view.

I think you'd enjoy Dixie Stampede...and with a group that size you might be able to get group rates. Someone from a group is often chosen to be a part of the show and that makes it super fun for the rest of the group!
