Dig’n Zone — NEW Heavy Equipment Theme Park in the Smokies


A brand-new attraction in Sevierville, Tennessee — and now the largest construction-based theme park in North America — Dig’n Zone is set to open by the end of spring in 2023! Along with a heavy equipment playground, there will be construction-themed rides, food trucks, an arcade, and a no-dig grassy space for concerts and events. 

Joining the ranks of top attractions in the Great Smoky Mountains, like Dolly Parton’s Dollywood, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, and Anakeesta, we have high hopes for the new Dig’n Zone theme park! If you’re planning a spring or summer getaway to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, we highly recommend checking out this new construction equipment theme park built for families and friends of all ages.

The Dig’n Zone Theme Park Experience

Growing up with a shared love for construction equipment in the Smokies, creators Grant Hensley and Weston O’Dell are pumped to bring their construction-based theme park to Sevier County. Across 27 acres, you’ll find 25+ attractions — including dig zones, heavy equipment rides, an arcade, a playground for kids, a restaurant, food trucks, and a large stage for live music performances and fun seasonal events.

Safety First
Remember playing with steam rollers, dump trucks, diggers, and other heavy equipment toys as a kid? Now you can graduate to the big league and play at this construction theme park! Plus, your kids, nieces, nephews, and grandkids will be able to experience it all with you as every ride has been modified for safety — with limited speed and mobility, remote shut-off, plus seat belts and hard hats. And yes, there are even toddler-friendly rides at their construction site for kids! 

Are there any height restrictions? To ride, drive, or operate heavy machinery, you must be at least 36 inches tall. However, small children may ride in a parent or guardian’s lap so everyone can be involved!

Fun Things to Do
With a backdrop of the Smoky Mountains, you can dig at the excavator playground, bowl down pins, crush cars, or retrieve “ducks” from a pool at this new theme park in Sevierville, TN. There are even rides with roller coaster seats in safely modified buckets — so you can experience what it’s like to be on the opposite end of a large excavator or mining truck. You’ll be lifted and spun around, carried high in the air, or dumped out! You can operate a life-size Tonka truck, skid steers, forklifts, and other real Caterpillar equipment too. 

Plus, look forward to Smoky Mountain holiday events, including Dig’n Halloween and Dig’n Lights of Christmas!
