Description

from WonderWorks - Tennessee
WonderWorks is an amusement park for the mind featuring over 100 interactive exhibits. It is 55,000 square feet of family fun.

The entire family will enjoy this fun, educational and totally upside down attraction in Pigeon Forge. Located at the north end of the Parkway, WonderWorks is filled with hands-on activities and experiences that will delight and entertain all ages. And the upside down reference... well, you’ll just have to see it to believe it!

Experience an extraordinary adventure in our new 12-seat 4D XD MOTION THEATER as you transcend time, space, and imagination. This one-of-a-kind experience combines 3D film with special effects and full motion seating, ranging from subtle sensations to intense vibrations. The XD Theater 4D experience will virtually transport you from your seat into the big-screen action and adventure!

Experience the real work of a forensic scientist in fingerprint identification, 3D Facial reconstruction, and facial recognition in our interactive FORENSIC SCIENCE EXHIBIT.

WonderWorks takes family fun to new heights with the Largest Indoor ROPES CHALLENGE COURSE. Standing over 40 feet tall, visitors will climb 3 stories of ropes as they encounter over 45 different obstacles and activities; including a tire traverse, suspension bridges, and swinging beams. Closed shoes required for this experience. The ropes course is included in the price of admission.

Test your physical strength in the CHALLENGE ZONE. Climb to the top of our gigantic rock climbing wall or check your psychological endurance as 3,500 Sharp nails rise beneath while you are lying on our bed of nails.

The SPACE ZONE is a great place to explore the depths of Outer Space. Explore life size replicas of an Astronaut Space Suit and Mercury Capsule. Better yet, take a seat in the Shuttle Landers and use your hand-eye coordination to maneuver the controls and land the Discovery Space Ship on the airstrip.

The SOUND and LIGHT ZONE - Jam on MTV drums and rock in your favorite music era, and don’t forget to strike a pose at Recollections then turn around and see what your very own shadow looks like, after you walk away.

Ever wonder what it would be like to experience a natural disaster? Now you can in WonderWorks Natural DISASTER ZONE. The 1989 San Francisco earthquake, one of history’s most renowned earthquakes, which stopped baseball’s World Series and collapsed a freeway, is recreated in the laboratory. Get ready to feel what a 5.3 earthquake really feels like.

The CONTROL CENTER promises endless entertainment. Kids from 1 - 101 will love our Bubble Room, where you can literally put yourself in a bubble that you created. Or stop by the Wonder Coaster to ride the roller coaster you have always wanted to ride.

"Neat Place - A little overpriced"
April, 2018
We went on a rainy day, so it was pretty crowded. Slightly overpriced, and some of the lines were a little too long for what time we had, but our son (10) enjoyed the different stations we were able to visit. I would not recommend bringing children under 5 - there wasn't much to do for little ones.

"Loved it! Great for my Family!"
March, 2018
My husband, I and my son (4 years old) very much enjoyed WonderWorks! We all rocked climbed (only have to be 40 lbs to participant), very much enjoyed the motion theater, and all the other awesome activities. We could easily spend all day there. I can't wait until my son is a little taller to do the rope climbing (I think you have to be 42 inches tall). It is such a fun place!

"Family Fun"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed May 21, 2018 NEW
We had a blast here. It’s a great place to go with kids and they have so much to do. Make sure you don’t get nauseous though a lot of the rides will make you nauseous. We did the 360 bikes and it was hilarious trying to peddle upside down. The 4d ride was exciting our daughter enjoyed that. The astronaut training was fun but make sure your stomach can handle being flipped all over the place. They had great side things to do to help distract from some of the lines like the rope obstacle Corse. The line for this was long and moved very slow and after finally getting harnessed and going up one section our daughter decided it was too scary and wanted to go back down. To me it looked fun and would have spent more time but didn’t want to force my child to do it so we came down and did the other activities. She loves laser tag and we did that before leaving and she had a blast. Great place to go if it’s hot out side or if it is raining out. We ended up spending over 4 hours here and it didn’t even feel like it was that long because there is so much to do. Great value for the money.

Great place to spend with hours or fun things to do. You can even stay for a dinner show which we did not. From the very beginning, the spinning tunnel was awesome. Many hands-on activities. The obstacle course was best I've ever seen with 2 levels to go through. 4 year old loved it. This is not a quick stop, plan on spending time here to get your money's worth.

"Everything was broken :/"

We attended wonder works today 05/15/2018. We were suoer excited as our wonder works experience in Orlando FL was awesome. We were a little disapointed that pretty much all the rides were broken. The only thing that was available was the rock climbing and the high ropes course. Which is ok. But disappointing for the price you pay. Even a lot of the electronic things in the space area were turbed off and broken :/. For $60 it was a bit of a bummer.
