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.

Wonderworks is like a staple for our family. Whenever we travel to Tennessee we always make time to go to wonderworks because of the variety of things to do. I will say there isn’t as many things to do for younger children.

We had a great time, my 3 year old enjoyed it too.

"Some interesting activities but very crowded"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 15, 2018 NEW
It's really an indoor mini theme park. The most interesting part was the 3D movie. It's very crowded so many of the activities you'll have to wait for, or just give up and move on. You'll navigate through strollers and un-supervised teenagers. As a result, we didn't spend as much time in the actual going through the activities. The Magic Show, on the other hand, is very entertaining!
