The Wonders of Flight is the new helium-filled balloon ride behind WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge, TN. The Wonders of Flight ride gives you a birds-eye view of Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains.
'Captain Ben' invited us to board the gondola which is an enclosed platform with handrails. Once we were all loaded he closed and secured the door and explained what would be happening during our flight. The Wonders of Flight balloon is tethered to a winch which slowly allows the balloon to ascend. We went up to 400 feet above the ground and had a spectacular view of Pigeon Forge, especially The Titanic, which was aglow from their lights. Here is a look. You can see The Titanic in the bottom left of the middle square of protective netting.
