Bring your family to WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge, an interactive museum that will entertain and teach kids of all ages! They’ll have so much fun, they won’t even realize they’re learning! Here are the top 4 fun things to do at WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge:
1. Explore the Wonder Zones
As soon as you walk into the upside down house and through the inversion tunnel, you’ll see the Wonder Zones. The Natural Distasters Zone has the Earthquake Cafe, where you can feel what a 5.3 earthquake on the Richter scale. There’s also an exhibit where you can feel how cold the water was the night the Titanic sank. Kids of all ages will enjoy the Physical Challenge Zone, where you can lay on a bed of nails and play in the bubble lab. In the Light and Sound Zone, you can play Speed of Light, tapping the buttons as they light up and you try to beat the clock. Space Discovery has a virtual game where you can land a space shuttle, just like real astronauts would have to. Small kids will have fun in the Imagination Lab where they can play on the Wonder Brite to create beautiful pictures. The Far Out Art Gallery Zone has all kinds of illusion artwork you guys will have fun deciphering.
2. Experience the Indoor Ropes Course
Unlike many of the other ropes courses you’ll see throughout the Smokies, the ropes course at WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge is indoors. It’s also a blacklight course, full of fun, bright colors. The course stands at 50 feet tall, which is about 4 stories. Little adventurers will have a blast making their way through the swinging steps, lily pads, and a tremor bridge. Everyone who braves the ropes course will feel a sense of accomplishment once you make it all the way through. It also tests your physical and mental abilities. You guys will have fun climbing and jumping your way through!
3. Play Laser Tag
Another fun thing you guys can do at WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge is to play a round or two of laser tag! The object of this fun game is to outlast the other players and gain more points by shooting lasers at their vests, hitting the targets. There are all kinds of hideaways and features you can hide behind, giving you the opportunity to sneak up on other players. While staying in one spot might seem like a good idea, it’s more fun to move around and try to get as many points as possible!
4. Play Games in the Arcade
Once you’ve made your way through the Wonder Zones and played laser tag, you can play games in the arcade! Play against each other on the air hockey table, seeing who can score the most goals. Shoot some hoops on the basketball games. Race on the Harley Davidson motorcycles and in the Daytona USA. You’ll find classic arcade games and some of the newest ones where you can win points. Once you’re done playing, trade your points for prizes!
