It's the wonder of WonderWorks in the upside-down building on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!

Indoor Climbing Wall in the Great Smoky Mountains
Can you take on "The Rock"?
But for a real physical challenge you can take on the Rock Climbing Wall that is fun for all ages. Take it slow or challenge your friends to see who can make it to the top first!
You can also challenge yourself on the Xtreme 360 Bike Experience-where you try to reach zero gravity, the Virtual Army Experience, and teh Speed of Light. Can you react fast enought to beat the clock?

One of the challenges of the Ropes Course
For a real thrill try the Pigeon Forge Ropes Challenge Course. Imagine, a wall 50 feet tall with obstacles like swinging steps, a tremor bridge and more ropes to climb up and through than a spider's web! Your challenge is to step up and get through the course safely and quickly. Challenge yourself or challenge your friends.

Dude, you simply have to try this!

Wonders of Flight in air!
There is another challenge to face just behind WonderWorks, and that is the challenge of height. Climb aboard the brightly painted gondola and experience a 360-degree panoramic view of Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains. The only sound you will hear is your own breathing and the hushed comments from your fellow riders as they take in the breath-taking views while you climb to 400 feet. Don't worry, you are completely safe as the helium-filled balloon is tethered to the ground, and you will be safely and smoothly reeled back to the ground after your ride in this "flying balcony".

Then, journey to the edge of reality - and beyond - with the magic and illusion of Terry Evanswood. Terry is an internationally recognized magician and winner of the "Merlin", and award given only to the most elite of magicians. His show will keep you spellbound and in addition to the magic he will recreate the "Dance of the Fireflies", and internationally know event that happens in the summer in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Included in the show is a tour down the Hall of Magic that features props, costumes artifacts and personal memorabilia from magicians including Blackstone, Thurston and Harry Houdini!
