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.

"Loved it! Great for my Family!"
March, 2018 NEW
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!

Great place for the family or those who like a adventure. Spend all day or come, go then come back bc they give you wristbands to come and go as you wish. Just don’t make other plans when planning to go here.

"Add This Attraction to Your List!!"
July, 2016
Wow, Wonderworks! We took our 6 and 8 year old sons to Gatlinburg for a summer vacation and Wonderworks was the favorite destination by far. We were entertained all morning, and left for lunch, returning until closing time. It was a great family experience to enjoy together, especially the challenges of the rope course which created the family bonding experience of conquering together. The employees were very helpful and engaging, and many of the experiences were very educational. There were lines for some areas, but nothing that took long at all on a weekend. Just a very positive experience, and we will definitely be returning. Thank you Wonderworks!

Tip: Wear tennis shoes, and definitely bring a camera/phone. While the exhibits weren't directed toward younger children or handicapped persons, I think that is the case at any amusement venue.

"more for older children"
July, 2016
Is geared more towards older teens and adults. Not a place for special needs children. Had a very rude experience from one lady who was attending. Very crowded. If wasn't so busy I would think be educational. Could barely get through some places and people push and shove to get into line.

We loved our trip to WonderWorks, in fact we came back after dinner and spent more time there. The lines for the rope course are INSANE, they desperately need to limit the time you're allowed to spend on the course or take reservations for the course. The roller coaster simulator was a lot of fun, rode it twice! There are a ton of activities and we spent over 6 hours there in one day.

"Great For Family with Teens"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 18, 2018 NEW
We took our 12 and 15 year old to this Interactive Learning/Fun Center and they had a blast. So many different activities that it peaked their interests and delivered a solid four hours of fun. We combined walking through the exhibits (Some science experiments, sports simulation, among art and illusions) with playing a game of laser tag and returning later in the day to take our chances at the ropes course. It's a bit expensive, but worth the memories and the unique experiences my teens were able to enjoy for the day.

Reviewed March 17, 2018 NEW
Our 3 and 6 year old really enjoyed this place. Be aware of height and weight restrictions for some of the rides and attractions here. My daughter wasn’t tall enough for hardly anything. Some of the attractions were a little dated (flight simulators) and weren’t working correctly. For the price of admission, everything should be working. Our favorites were the Hurricane simulator and roller coaster simulator.

Would not go here again. Lines were way too long. Lots of the attractions were broken. While they do have some neat things to see, it is way over priced for what their is to do.
