The Wonder Zones

This attraction has 6 Wonder Zones. These are exhibits that each have their own unique theme. They contain more than 100 hands-on exhibits altogether. If you dream of being an astronaut, check out the Space Discovery Zone! You can step into a real-life space suit, ride a gyroscope, and squeeze into a Mercury Capsule! In the Light and Sound Zone, learn more about your shadow and make music with your feet on the giant piano (AKA: The King of Instruments). Other Wonder Zones include the Wonder Art Gallery which has a collection of some of the world’s most famous illusion art. All of the Wonder Zones are jam packed with fun activities, so it will be hard to choose a favorite!

At 50 feet tall and over 4 stories high, the course contains over 50 different obstacles. Some of these include swinging steps, lily pads, and a tremor bridge. You don’t have to worry about falling because you are strapped into a harness. Feel a great sense of accomplishment as you leave each obstacle behind. The glow-in-the-dark theme makes the atmosphere even more exciting! While this 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 fun thing to do here is the laser tag. Visitors can see how long they can wander through the backlit maze and hide 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. This is a special kind of movie theater where the audience is immersed into 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 take you on an epic journey. For example, during the Wild West Mine Ride, you are in the desert trying to get away from the outlaws. The Dino Safari film takes you through the jungle in search of some mighty creatures. It’s safe to say that there is no wrong choice!
