from Wonders of Flight
WonderWorks takes flight with a giant tethered balloon experience. Let your imagination soar to exciting heights up to 400 feet in the air with this new iconic attraction, Wonders of Flight.
Guests will board a gondola beneath the blue and green giant helium filled balloon from the landing platform situated behind WonderWorks. The 72 foot diameter balloon manufactured by Aerophile, will take up to 30 guests in the gondola at one time.
Silent and without any vibrations, the open air gondola will allow guests to experience the sensation of being on a flying balcony. The ascents, by day or night, provide guests with a 360-degree panorama view of the Smoky Mountains. In one single gaze, the entire breath taking view will be seen from exceptional heights. Flights daily with daytime and evening hours, weather permitting.
