WonderWorks is an indoor amusement park for the mind combining education and entertainment with more than 100 hands ”“ on exhibits for all ages to experience.
WonderWorks began as a Top Secret science and research laboratory, led by Professor Wonder, on a remote island in the Bermuda Triangle. During an experiment gone awry, a manmade tornado unleashed through the laboratory and created a swirling vortex that carried the building thousands of miles away, landing it upside-down on the top of a theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Remarkably, all of the experiments remained intact and functional.
As you enter the upside down attraction, the ceiling will be under your feet and the ground will be above your head, making it impossible to explore what’s inside. In order to begin your adventure, pass through the inversion tunnel and defy gravity as you are properly aligned!
Once inside, you will be able to explore six Wonder Zones: Natural Disasters, Physical Challenges, Light and Sound, Imagination Lab, Space Discovery and the Far Out Art Gallery.
Journey through each zone, testing your knowledge, physical capacities and creativity! Become a human lightning rod by touching 10,000 volts of electricity or experience category 1 hurricane force winds! Gather up your strength to lift your weight using a pulley system or build up courage to lie down on a bed of 3,500 rising nails. Navigate through space on a mission to Mars and try to keep aliens from invading our planet! As you make your way up through the Far Out Art Gallery to the basement, you will find more thrilling adventures, including a 4-story indoor ropes challenge course and lazer-tag arena.
Take your WonderWorks experience to new heights with the Wonders of Flight. Experience Tennessee like never before when you soar 500 feet into the air on a giant, tethered, helium-filled balloon and enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the Smokey Mountains and gorgeous Tennessee landscapes.
While visiting, upgrade to a combo package and prepare to be amazed by the all new Wonders of Magic, headlined by internationally-recognized magician, Terry Evanswood. This magic show features world-famous illusions, thrills, suspense and more! It is a family show for all ages!
