WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge Information
WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge is an indoor interactive amusement park for the mind. Fun for All Ages! Experience over 100 interactive exhibits for all ages. 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! Takes about 3 - 4 hours to explore the exhibits, but you can spend all day at WonderWorks. At WonderWorks, the unexplainable will come to life and the unusual will be the norm.
WonderWorks has over 100 Interactive Exhibits! FUN FOR ALL AGES! Here are a few of the fun things to do:
Bed of Nails Feel the sensation of 3,500 SHARP nails rise up from under you while lying on this bed of nails. Any good scientist knows pressure is the application of force over a certain area. The area of a single nail is VERY small; this is why if you step on one nail, it will easily break your skin. Your foot puts a large amount of force on a small area – the nail. On the bed of nails, in this Pigeon Forge attraction, you learn why you can be lifted up by 3,500 nails without felling the pressure of them.
Bubble Lab Kids of all ages (1-101) love bubbles! This exhibit is just for the fun of it! Put yourself inside a gigantic bubble that you created! Bubbles do not have their own color. They reflect and refract the light around the bubble. The colors you see on a bubble actually show the thickness (or thinness) of the bubble wall.
Challenge Zone Test your physical strength as you make your way to the top of our gigantic indoor rock-climbing wall, or ride the Extreme 360 Bikes. There are many other youth group activities in this area, all are designed to test your mind or your body.
Disaster Zone One of history's most renowned events, the 1989 San Francisco earthquake stopped baseball's World Series and collapsed a freeway. It is recreated in the laboratory. Guests will feel for themselves what an earthquake that measures 5.3 on the Richter Scale actually feels like in our Quake Café!
Far Out Illusion Gallery Enter a new dimension of reality and explore the unknown. Discover how perception and perspective are used to help you look at the world in a WHOLE NEW way. Throughout the Far Out Illusion Gallery in WonderWorks, the unexplainable will come to life and unusual will be the norm.
Fun with Lights and Sound Sit back and let your mind travel to another place in our Sound Lab where you will experience 3D sound. Then, move on to strike a pose and leave your shadow behind. Play Virtual Air Hockey and Dance to the colors of light and stomp kick and use your feet to play in thee the Wonder Dome.
Inversion Tunnel Defy Gravity!!! As you approach WonderWorks, it is obvious that the building landed upside-down. Professor Wonder and his staff of Brilliant Scientists invented the Inversion tunnel to realign and invert your orientation so that you can defy gravity and play with all the exhibits and experiments.
Mind Ball A challenging bio feedback game for two based on EEG technology. Players will wear a headband with electrodes and relax their minds in order to use their brain waves and move the ball across the table to the opposing side. Mindball is a game that goes against the conventional competitive concept. Instead of activity and adrenaline, Mindball relies on calmness to measure participants’ success. The most relaxed player wins! The same technology is used as a training tool for cadets at The United States Military Academy at West Point. Officers are not only trained to be alert but also to control their thought process and remain calm in high-pressure situations.
Rockwall Climbing See who can climb the wall the fastest.
Space Zone Looking for things to do in Pigeon Forge? Explore your way through the depths of outer space in the Space Zone. Explore the life size replica of an Astronaut Space Suit and Mercury Capsule. For a memorable souvenir, you can take your picture inside these phenomenal pieces of history.
Velocity Ball Have you ever thought what it would be like to be on the mound and stare down a Major League Baseball player at the plate? Now you’ve got your chance with WonderWorks Velocity Ball. Select a player to pitch to from Craig Biggio, Bobby Abreu, Garret Anderson, Lance Berkman, Barry Bonds, Dinger or Darin Erstad. Take your windup and throw a pitch. Then hear Ball, Strike, Home Run as the speed of your ball is displayed on the screen. “Batter Up!”
