w w w . c o n v e n t i o n s o u t h . c o m Two new treetop obstacle courses have opened up recently in Sevierville and theyʼve got Sevierville CVB Marketing Director Amanda Marr, who has experienced one of them first hand, excited. "I did Treetops Ropes Course at Adventure Park at Five Oaks about a month ago and it is fantastic for confidence building," Marr said. "From tra- versing across an expanse on a metal wire 40 feet up, to hooking yourself on a zipline and riding across, youʼre able to build confidence to handle these challenges." Five Oaks also has the 100-room Oak Tree Lodge, which offers 2,500 square feet of meeting space, four rooms and a catering staff. The very newest treetop obstacle course, however, is the Climb Zip Swing Aerial Adventure Park at the River Plan- tation RV Resort. The resortʼs conference center can accommodate up to 450 seated and 750 theater-style. In-house catering is available. The largest meeting facility in Sevierville is the 200,000-square-foot Sevierville Convention Center. The facility is divisible exhibition hall has over 108,000 square feet of space; its ballroom has nearly 20,000 square feet; and it has two small meeting rooms and additional pre- function space. Marsha Norris, sales manager for the Sevierville Convention Center, is happy to have a new sign for the facility on Route 66 in Sevierville. "We are also quite proud of our new website, which also reflects our recent rebranding from "event" center to "convention" center. We have a facility that is modern, with beautiful mountain views, and an onsite hotel. We have more than 130,000 square feet of meeting space and we sit beside two championship golf courses." Sevierville Convention Centerʼs onsite hotel is Stone Hill Lodge, connected to it and associated with Wilderness at the Smokies, a multifaceted waterpark resort across the street with a large indoor water park, two smaller outdoor water parks, an indoor adventure center with a ropes course and other attractions. ■ Sevierville Takes To The Trees S E P T E M B E R 2 0 1 4 ⎜ ConventionSouth ⎜ 49 T E N N E S S E E M O U N T A I N S Two new treetop obsta- cle courses have opened up recently in Sevierville.
