Description

from WonderWorks - Tennessee
WonderWorks is an amusement park for the mind featuring over 100 interactive exhibits. It is 35,000 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 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.

"What a fun time!"
October, 2018
When they say indoor amusement park they mean it. They have so much to do and see that one really could plan a whole day there. It was so busy but so worth it. They had rides, rope course, rock wall, and many more. Another visit will surely be in the works.

We loved wonderworks, from the check in process, to every worker we encountered, we had a blast and enjoyed our day! They offer the ability to leave and re-enter any time during the day free of charge! There wasn’t anything we would change, and are looking forward to the one being built closer to home for us to enjoy!

"Fun for a cold day"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 20, 2019 NEW
This definitely isn’t the type of thing we came to the smoky mountains for, but it was a really cold day, the pass through the smoky mountains was closed and the lumberjack show we were planning to see was cancelled so...indoor fun it was! This rang in at about $100 for a family of four. We did spend about 3 hours here though. We did everything it seemed like. Lines weren’t bad-you could pass by where the lines were and come back to those attractions later. We live in a touristy place so we have ropes courses, 7D theaters, laser tag of course, and frankly, everything we have at home is more fun but there were some things here that we hadn’t experienced before and it did pass the afternoon. I was definitely ready to get outta there but our 10 and 12 year old will remember it fondly!

Interesting and somewhat educational. My son loved getting to lay on a bed of nails. There’s a fun rope course if you’re not afraid of heights. The first area you walked thru is not great for those who suffer motion sickness so I recommend Dramamine 30 minutes before you go in if have this issue.

"Great rainy day activity in Pigeon Forge!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 13, 2019 NEW
We visited Wonderworks after we were given tickets for Christmas. It’s a great place to take small children all the way through teens! There’s so much to do: science activities, a climbing wall, high ropes course, and a TON more. It seemed much more crowded earlier in the day but even then it was manageable. You can defjnitely make a day-long adventure of it!
