Family Fun at WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge, TN | Review
My family recently spent 5 days in Pigeon Forge, TN during our Spring Break Vacation. During our drive to our cabin, we spotted the WonderWorks building and said “Hey! Now that place looks interesting!” The whole building was turned upside down, trees and shrub’s included. We knew nothing about WonderWorks when we arrived but woah were we blown away!
If you plan to visit WonderWorks while in Pigeon Forge, TN makes sure to block off at least 5 hours of your day. Time flies when you’re having fun!
One of the top things to do in Pigeon Forge, WonderWorks Indoor Amusement park, is one of the best Pigeon Forge Attractions. With over 35,000 square feet of “edu-tainment,” WonderWorks is an amusement park for the mind. The attraction combines education and entertainment with more than 100 hands-on exhibits that challenge the mind and spark the imagination.
This once top-secret laboratory was located in the Bermuda triangle. An experiment gone awry lifted the laboratory carrying it to Music Drive in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where it landed upside down. Luckily all of the exhibits remained intact and available for guests to explore.
Address: 100 Music Rd, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863-4972

While there are many things to do in town this had to be the most mind-boggling destination we visited. WonderWorks is the perfect location to visit on a rainy day, all of the rides are inside and offer unlimited rides. Although we went on a busy day, the lines moved pretty fast and all the kids got to do each ride at least twice before we left.
My girls have wanted to rock climb for forever! I honestly haven’t let them do it simply because we never had the time or when they requested it at another theme park the line was so long we couldn’t justify the wait. Although this was the first time my girl’s rock climbed they did amazing! Keturah was able to hit the buzzard at the top twice!
Challenge your mind and test your wits in 100’s of interactive games the whole family can play. I read in past reviews some of the interactive games didn’t work, but during our visit, everything worked fine. There were too many different fun interactive games to pick which ones were our favorites. There is a human-sized pin art board that the kids spent about 20 minutes imprinting themselves in.
I think we spent about an hour in the bubble room with all four kids creating human-sized bubbles. There were many stations available to use so no one had to wait in line to use them. Esuun had a great time trying to make the bubbles stretch out as far as she could. While Keturah seemed to be a pro and made bubbles as tall as her. All of my four kids had a great time here and didn’t want to leave.
Galactic Ropes Course
I’m not going to lie, this Galactic Ropes Course was more challenging than it lets on. So for those of you who might look at it and go that’s for babies, it’s not. All of the kids and I went on the course and spent about an hour getting around and challenging ourselves on different courses.
Standing 50 feet tall, visitors will climb 4 stories of ropes as they encounter over 50 different obstacles and activities; including swinging steps, lily pads, a tremor bridge and more. Conquer your fears and get an adrenaline rush at a top Pigeon Forge attraction. This exciting experience is included in the price of General Admission.
Warning: If you are afraid of heights or have a little one who is be warned, this course goes up 4 levels. As you go up each level the courses are more challenging. My 6 year old made it to the 2nd level while my 12 and 13-year-old’s made it to the top 4th level.
The object is to outplay, outlast and outshoot the other players. You can try to stay hidden but you’re bound to be spotted eventually so keep your eyes open and your mind sharp. Laser-Tag combines innovative technology to provide players with a one-of-a-kind interactive experience. Upgrade your ticket to take part in this experience. My boys had a ton of fun playing against each other in Laser Tag.
My family loved visiting WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. There was so much to do it was hard getting them to leave so we could make it to the next activity I had planned on our itinerary. I think kids and families of all ages will love visiting this location, they have so much to do and also host a Magic Show.
Tickets are sold at the front desk for Terry Evanswood Wonder’s Of Magic Show, pick them up when you enter the building.
