Guests can be amazed watching magician Terry Evanswood perform at The Wonders of Magic, then explore the WonderWorks facility, which features more than 100 interactive exhibits among its 55,000 square feet of space.
I know people really love this place, but I was not that impressed. If you have visited a handful of science or childrens museums, then many of these attractions will not be new to you. On the positive side, the main difference between this place and standard childrens or science museums is the rides. There are several small but cool rides. They are not for small children though, so be sure to check height requirements before attending. Several of the attractions were not working, but also did not have signs or any indication they weren't working properly. We were there first thing in the morning, and it showed me that staff does not check each attraction in the morning to be sure it is functioning properly. We were there mid-week during the off season and expected a light crowd, but it was so crowded. I can't imagine visiting this place in the height of tourist season. We waited over 90 minutes for the ropes course, and the line wasn't even all the way to the end of the handrails. Not only that, there was pretty minimal staffing and supervision, and people were waiting in line and then sending their friends or kids to play elsewhere, then welcoming them back in line. Super frustrating to those of us waiting in line the entire time. I had 8 people jump in line in front of me during my wait, adding probably 20 minutes to my wait time. With the exception of the major attractions (rides and ropes course) there was really no structure to lining up to do things. And with pretty minimal staffing, this can be pretty frustrating because it is unclear where the "line up" space is. Especially for small children who can get lost in the shuffle, more clearly marked spaces for lining up would be helpful. Overall it was ok and for the most part the kids enjoyed it. We bought the magic show combo (magic show is awesome!) so it felt more reasonable cost-wise. You can also come and go all day which is a huge plus. I would NEVER visit this place in the summer tourist season though. The lines would be ridiculous.
I think this place should do age recommendations. My grandaufhter is 6 and there is some things she could do and others that were too hard or didn't have her interested at all.Just not worth it for younger children.
Went on a Thursday...10:30 to 2:30...Took 9 year old grandson...he had a blast...lots to do but really crowded and LOUD...took us a solid 4 hours to do everything...everything was included in the price except for the laser tag which was $6.99 for one game and the upper level arcade room which took 4 tokens for each game...avoid it if you can...but, the concession stand was up there and you had to go through the arcade to get there...food was reasonable...hot dogs were $2...they lack an adequate first aid station...I cut my hand and it was a chore just to get a bandaid...so be aware

My husband and I went here while visiting Gatlinburg. We thought the ticket price was a little high but we had heard great things about it and decided to try it. We had an awesome time! I was amazed at how much there was to do there. We spent 5 hours there. It was a great time and my husband's favorite part of the trip. If I had one piece of advice for future visitors it would be to get there right when it opens and go do the ropes course first. The line gets backed up really quick and it moves very slowly.
