  1. A fake iceberg in Tennessee is not really out-of-the box creative thinking. It’s more like the product of a disturbed mind.

    …to each his own. It has some interesting things, but the scale gave the game away pretty quick, the artifacts I saw were mostly boring ones, and I was kind of jaded because we had seen a travelling exhibit before this that had a recreation of first thru third class you could walk through, complete with engine noises that got louder the deeper you went and a flooding staircase, a mosaic tile floor they had brought up from the actual ship and reconstructed, and a HUGE chunk of the outer hull complete with iconic portholes that was arranged in such a way you could look through it and imagine what the last person who did the day she sunk, and many other things that really kind of punked the pricey tourist trap in PF to me. This isn’t exactly it, but it was very similar to this…

    The Pigeon Forge one was all right, but pretty expensive for what you got, at least to me. And to have the ouside of the building perpetually as the moment the ship struck the iceberg seemed a bit off-putting to me, like a 9/11 scale exibit with an airplane stuck in the side of a tower, kind of revolting and tacky at the same time…

    ..you were looking for Smoky Mountain Knife Works. Well worth the trip for an edged weapons fan. All you had to do was turn left out of there and drive towards the I-40 and you would have seen it on your left side, its pretty huge and they sell guns, too…

  6. This is very upsetting. We were there in 2012 and 2018. It’s a great place if you are a fan of the Titanic and want to know the background on what took place during that maiden voyage. Very sad and disturbing.

    Say your prayers everyday!!

    God Bless us all!

  7. Quite so, Super’. I don’t own any guns, or knives. And I haven’t left home in 4 years. 🙂 I’m not sure why Brad hates RRTs, either.

    BTW, I’m not an RRT, I was a telephone man, a switch programmer, and a telecommunications engineer.

  8. Oh Jesus Christ I don’t hate RRTs. Well, I did meet one once that cut in front of me at the local 7-11 while purchasing a slurpy. Wasn’t to fond of that ass hole. But she was bigger than I was, so I let it slide. I’ll get back to you.

  9. @SNS – I appreciate your comments…

    THAT SAID?

    They have an interactive thing where you can put your hand or arm in the same degree water as when the ship went down…

    28 degrees…

    Frozen but not frozen for sea salt…

    They give you a passenger ‘personality’ when you get a ticket and at the end you find out if you survived or not.

    ‘Chilling…’
