To celebrate our oldest son's recent birthday, our family went to Wonder Works in Pigeon Forge, TN. We have passed by this "upside down museum" several times, and have always said how much we would love to visit. Now was the perfect time to go.
This place is so much fun! As the story goes, Wonder Works began as a top secret research lab in the Bermuda Triangle. Professor Wonder and his scientists went to work to see if they could create a man-made tornado. They did, but things went terribly wrong. The tornado lifted the entire lab from its foundation, and tossed it hundreds of miles away, upside down, right in the middle of Pigeon Forge, TN. Professor Wonder opened the museum to visitors. Now everyone can enjoy its more than 100 interactive, hands-on exhibits.
My climbers loved the climbing wall. The great part was that they could go as many times as they wanted.
The Bubble Lab was fascinating. Although it wasn't very crowded the day we went, it was set up to handle lots of visitors.
The Xtreme 360 was perfect for my teens.
Out of everything there, the 4 story ropes course was the most popular attraction. My kids waited in line for 20-30 minutes before being harnessed up for their turn. With 50 obstacles, I'm sure it was worth the wait.
My twelve year old could have spent hours at The Wonder Wall. This is like the Pin Point Impression Needle Art Frame [Toy], except that it has over 78,000 pins to make a 3D image of
My kids had so much fun. We spent about four hours inside Wonder Works, but I think our teens could have easily stayed much longer.
They're already asking to go back.
