Great Visit
Sep 2021
All in one stop, loved it. So many things to do. Great shops, good dining options and especially loved the seating area around the pond to watch the water display.

The fountain is the main attraction and you have several shops and places to get food as well as rides for the kids and places for couples to hang out
Parking is free and a shuttle will pick you up and take you back to parking lot

Beautiful, but some repetitive shops
Sep 2021
Multiple shops selling the same merch. Great fountain water show! Could use more benches through the shopping corridors.

Wonderful

My family and I stayed a week in Pidgeonforge, and The Island was the best part of our week (way over Dollywood 🤬 which was horrible)

Fun at night!
Sep 2021 • Family
Three of us appreciated The Island as a modern venue (that is free!) to stroll around for a couple hours on Tuesday night. We enjoyed the evening lights and the water fountain show, which was set to music and beautiful against a clear half-moon night sky, and lasted about 6-8 minutes. We shopped in a couple stores, thoroughly enjoyed listening to a bluegrass band outside of the whiskey store, watching kids ride their rides, eating ice-cream. There was plenty of free parking with a tram to take you to/from the island. It was very worth visiting.

Lot of options
Sep 2021
There is some great options here and spectacular sights, but not everything is a hit. Some of the best is the fountains with the rocking chairs and fountain shows, moonshine store, and the SkyFly. Little kids would benefit from this place the most. There is several rides, a big wheel, arcade, and a rope course. Though, I think the restaurants are more so aimed at the adults. Definitely check it out for something to do for the day.

The Island
Sep 2021 • Couples
We went to The Island for the sole purpose of riding the big wheel and it did not disappoint. Seeing the fountain light display from the top of the wheel was nice. We did walk around after the ride and went into a few of the shops. The tram ride was nice, efficient and much appreciated.

Fun place
Sep 2021 • Friends
Loved SkyFall and the Wheel. The fountains were amazing. Margaritaville Island hotel was awesome. Byrd's cookies were incredible! The only black mark was Dick's Last Resort. We loved Dicks in Nashville. This one was definitely not up to par.

A LOT to see!!
Aug 2021
We first visited the Island during the day, and had lunch at Paula Deen's--good food and nice atmosphere!! However, the best time to visit the Island is at night!!! The fountain show is spectacular!!!! The shuttle bus operators were very helpful loading our handicap scooter!
