Everything You Need to Know About WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge

One of the things that make Pigeon Forge a great family vacation destination is the amount of kid-friendly activities, one of which is WonderWorks. It is a unique museum inside and out! The building resembles an upside-down house. Inside, there are more than 100 hands-on exhibits that offer endless fun. Read on to learn more about this awesome attraction! Here is a list of everything you need to know about WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge:

The Wonder Zones

The purpose of the activities at WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge is to provide visitors with both education and entertainment; the Wonder Zones do just that! There are 6 in total, and each has a distinct theme. Almost all of them cover some area of science. For example, the activities in the Extreme Weather Zone teach visitors about how weather affects humans and the environment around them. Feel the force of a 74 miles per hour hurricane wind and an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.3 on the Richter scale. Another fun Wonder Zone is the Space Discovery Zone. See what it’s like to be an astronaut when you step into a real-life space suit. You can also ride a gyroscope. This is part of an astronaut’s training, and its spinning motion mimics the unpredictable forces of space.

Indoor Ropes Course

In addition to the Wonder Zones, WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge is also home to the world’s largest indoor ropes course. It is over 50 feet tall and 4 stories high. After visitors are strapped into a harness, they can conquer more than 50 different obstacles. Some of these include swinging steps, lily pads, and a tremor bridge. Feel a growing sense of accomplishment as you leave each one behind. If you get discouraged along the way, take a moment to admire the course’s unique glow-in-the-dark theme. While this activity is fun for visitors of all ages, it is especially so for kids. They will love doing the course and getting all their energy out.

Laser Tag and 4D Simulator Ride

Another physical challenge at this attraction is a laser tag maze. See if you can find your way out of the blacklit maze while staying hidden from opponents. Feel like the hero in your favorite action movie who is trying to escape the villains. See if you can be the last player left in the game. Additionally, WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge also has a 4D Simulator Ride. You’ve never watched a movie quite like this! This is a special kind of theater where the audience is immersed in the action of the film through the power of special effects and full-motion seating. There are 3 movies that play on a rotating schedule throughout the day. Each of them takes you on an epic journey. For example, during the Wild West Mine Ride, you are in the desert trying to escape the outlaws. The Dino Safari film takes you through the jungle in search of some mighty creatures. Feel the full force of their roar when you find them! It’s safe to say that there is no wrong choice!
