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.

"Fun for the whole day!"
August 2019
I recently visited Wonder Works with my 3 kids, ages 4, 11 and 16. We all had a blast, even myself! Out of all the things in the area to choose from, this place was by far worth every dime! You can spend several hours of your day here letting the kids play! You can also come and go as you please all day for no extra charge!

I took my son to WonderWorks, and he had a great time. There were plenty of activities, games, and experimenting for children. Also the layout of how it was built is really nice.

"Best School field trip"
July 2019
On Friday January 25, 2019 between 9:30 am – 1:30 pm, I was a chaperone for West Hills Elementary Class.
Even Though My son is now in the 6th grade, I was in awe on how all the 4th grade teachers was parents/teachers to every 4th grade student on this amazing field trip.
Every 4th grade teacher from West hills Elementary school treated each child with safety and caring if it were their own children.
The entire staff at Wonderworks located in Pigeon Forge Tennessee, went out of their way to make sure that every student had a fun time learning new educational science and space on hand experience.
Toni from Wonderworks at the astronaut training challenge the “Gyroscope” made sure every student was safely buckle in with a warm friendly smile.
Thanks Wonderworks for providing amazing safe school science fun learning experience on this special field trip.
And to every 4th grade teacher at West Hill Elementary, as a parent with a child in school I was so very proud of each and every one of you for going above the moon to provide a safe trip for each student.

"The "Upside Down" house"
June 2019
I am a single mom of 3, ages 10,6 & 4 and I have got to give y'all the biggest compliment on being able to leave & come back as long as we held on to our tickets & didn't do laser tag yet! Me & my 3 kids arrived AFTER TITANIC so around 11a.m but didn't realize it would still be extremely busy with school groups even though it was summer! But anywho, we got where the ropes course started & decided it was TOO crowed for us so we would leave & come back later in the afternoon/evening. That was so much more convient for us & allowed us to not spend so much time waiting in line & able to do everything we wanted & even repeated a few lol but overall it was very nice & convient for this single momma to go thru & do & watch everything the kids & I wanted to do! Thanks for a great family adventure!

"Way too busy, broken equipment, & a crappy magic show."
June 2019
If you can find a slow time it might be a better experience at Wonderworks. There was a lot of broken down equipment. They screwed up our tickets when we got there in which we didn't find out till we got denied the magic show, they corrected it but then costed us anywhere close to decent seating for what ended up being a really crappy show. They put too many people in the laser tag for it to be fun. The magic show was garbage entertainment. I enjoyed only one trick and I feel bad for the one talented assistant in that show (dark haired lady). The host made some political & social jokes that were in very poor taste. They played completely butchered music during their show and was extremely anal about pictures or video being taken claiming it was copyright based when the truth is they are obviously breaking copyright laws horribly. I never tried to take pics but observed the way people were treated for trying. I would not go back to this place.

Tip: Find a slow time to go if you can. Don't waste money on the magic show.

It is a super fun time with just me and my husband, but with our 5 year old there just isn’t a lot to do. Neat place, but maybe more fun for older kids.

"Busy, popular attraction. Hours of fun"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 08, 2019
We visited with 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 5-13). There were attractions that were suitable for all age ranges. We first stopped at noon on a Monday and a worker announced that there was a 1-3 hour wait for each exhibit. We opted to leave and try back in the evening. We returned around 5p and it was still busy but not as bad. There was still a wait for most exhibits. We ended up skipping one of the biggest attractions (the glow rope course) because the kids were tired of waiting in line after 30 mins. We also skipped a roller coaster simulator for the same reason. We still found enough stuff to keep the kids entertained. I do wish we were able to participate in the popular activities. There was a rock climbing wall that the kids enjoyed. At the end is laser tag (keep your admission ticket as it is your admission into laser tag). The concessions at the end was very reasonable priced (dippin dots for 3.25$ hot dog 2$). A few attractions were broken (basketball timer/score keeping doesn’t work for example). It’s expensive for a family of 4 but we were able to purchase a groupon for 72$. Overall the kids really enjoyed themselves.

We had a wonderful time here! Took our 4 year old and 5 year old. Now, our 4 year old is quite tall and was able to both the rock wall and the ropes course with an adult. We all had a wonderful time! Spent 3 hours here and it could have been longer except we left for lunch and a nap for the youngest one. We will definitely go back when we are in the area again!
