from WonderWorks Pigeon Forge
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. It is 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 the 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!

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 are required for this experience. The ropes course is included in the price of admission.

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

The SPACE DISCOVERY 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 LIGHT & SOUND ZONE where you can 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 EXTREME WEATHER 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 the 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.

"Super Fun! ??"
June 2024 NEW
We came from Tulare California to visit our grandkids in Ohio. We all, 7 of us drove to Tennessee. Wonderland was one of the things the grandkids and their parents researched, and they were SUPER EXCITED to see the "upsidedown house". We had a great time and made great memories to last a lifetime! ??

"Fun for the family"
December 2023
Basically, this is like a really fun children’s museum. My husband and I had stopped here on our last trip and knew we had to bring the kids!

It was really fun for the kids to walk through an ‘upside-down building’. When you first walk into the ticket counter and main lobby area and look up, the building is made to literally look like everything is upside down. Completed with what appears to be metal and material that would burst out of a broken building. I attempted to convince my 8-year-old that when we go in turn upside down. He believed it for about 2 seconds. I had to try though!

From there, you walk through a swirling tunnel and all the fun activities begin. They have a rock wall, obstacle course, bubble station, a bed of nails, and a ton more activities! This place kept our family busy and having fun for a couple of hours and is a must if you’re going as a family!

A few things changed from last year as far as what they offer for games/entertainment but overall still the same. Staff was amazing once again and the kids had a blast!

"Awesome experience"
October 2023
WonderWorks was an awesome experience with my family. Really enjoyed that we did not have to pick a specific day to use the tickets on and that they were good for the whole time we were on vacation. We ended up picking a rainy day and enjoyed our experience inside out of the rain.

Tip: This is an awesome place to take the kids who love to exploring things. Lots of hands on activities for both kids and adults. It is also nice that you can leave and come back later that same day to continue to enjoy your experience.

"lots to explore"
April 2023
We had only things. a few hours till we had to go to the titanic museum. It was already busy because it was raining. We only got to see a few of the interactive. WE were told that if we had to leave, we could come back and get right through and skip the line. When we left and came back the line was so long and we tried to enter but was told we had to go to the end of the line, which was outside in the rain. We told whoever was at the entrance door that we have tickets and was told that they did not care and that they were not letting anyone in. We left not getting to see the rest of what we wanted to see. Very disappointed. Tried to get a refund not such luck. We were not the only ones that had this issue that day.

Tip: Purchase your tickets in advance. Allow for at least 4 to 5 hours to see everything and do not schedule anything that day as well.

"a fun few hours"
August 2022
we did this to fill some time before going to a dinner show. i was with a 10 year old and 21 year old. we had a great time and spent several hours here. a lot of interactive things to do some geared towards older people. i would say under 7 wouldnt like it as much . they have lazer tag also they have a acrade that is small i would have thought some of them would be free to play with the cost of admission but was not. they also have a small snack store inside with corndogs nachos dipping dots type thing. I dont think it would be something i would go to more then a few times but if you have never been its worth it.

Tip: go a day you dont think it will be busy like during the week
