Titanic Coming to Pigeon Forge Spring 2010

I know sounds impossible, right? Believe me it is not. I have the pictures to prove it. In the midst of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, a replica of the Titanic ship is being built. This is not true to size but pretty doggone big. One will be able to walk the grand staircase and experience many of the things on board the Titanic. Imagine if you will, you were on Titanic's maiden voyage.
Here is a list of a few things you will be able to do.
  • Walk Titanic’s Grand Staircase
  • Touch the frozen surface of an “iceberg”
  • Feel the chill of that fateful “Starry Night
  • Study some of the largest, most detailed Titanic models ever built
  • Grip the ship’s wheel and follow the Captain’s commands
  • Tour world-class galleries and the rare historical artifacts they hold
  • Sit in a Titanic lifeboat and listen to actual survivors tell their stories
  • Send an SOS from the Marconi Wireless Room
  • Test their balance while standing on mini-decks built to show the ever-steeper slope of Titanic as she sank
  • Watch children six years and younger explore the special interactive Titanic Tot Play-and-Learn Room
  • Dive to Titanic’s wreck site via spectacular underwater camera footage

Gage went through a phase a couple years back when he was on a kick about the Titanic. This was great for me, great history for him to learn. We cannot wait to go back and visit this attraction.

Here is the website if you want to check out the facts about this museum being built.
