What ended up happening to...

On my last visit to PF in 08 they were underway on building a themed area right off the main strip with resturants, museum and such but I heard it kinda didn't get finished due to the economy. What ever happen with it? Also there was this HUGE Red barn that was home to a "bear company" on my visit in 06 only to see it empty and gone in 08, has anyone taken it over yet?

I think that the first place that you are talking about was the Belle Island development. While it is nearly finished, it is still up in the air when or if anything is going in there. The second place is probably the Boyd's Bears building. It was going to be a Dick Clark facility for awhile, but as of last April it was still not being used. The best place to keep track of stuff like this is on www.discoverthesmokies.com . It's run by a couple from Pigeon Forge and they do a fantastic job of keeping up with everything going on in the area. I hope this helps.
