Fun place to visit for older kids (mine were 12/13) and adults. Lots of interactive exhibits that were also educational. Some reviews I read said that the off season wasn't a good time but we went in January and only one exhibit was closed for renovation and there were no crowds to deal with! We were able to enjoy all... More

I brought my 11 year old daughter here because I've been curious about it for awhile and found a deal on Groupon. We had a fun time. There are all kinds of simulators like a hurricane, lightning rod and even a roller coaster simulator. I also liked the simpler ones like the snow board, bubble makers and somewhat virtual air...

Went with my wife and a friend of ours. We had a great time. Very engaging and interesting exhibits and a lot of fun. I don't know how they get repeat business as once you go, you have kind of seen it, but it shoulden't be missed if you are visiting PCB.

This is a huge kids museum/play place. Had a great time with me and 5 kids. There is stuff for both little kids, and actually a lot that was fun for me as an adult also.

I live here and am planning on choosing the best five things to do with grandkids in Jan when they visit. A little leary about all the cost and the treatment. It will be off season so wonder if all the attractions are working. If not Ill akip it.

You see the upside down building, and the Ripley's brand suggests there's something cool/weird going on inside, but I really didn't know what to expect. This was a great day for us, despite not knowing what we were getting into; the kids had a great time, we got a break from the heat indoors, and it didn't feel like we... More

We have visited Wonder Works in Gatlinburg as well, and if you have active young ones, this is the place! My grandkids are 12-7 and there is something for everyone, including me! Whether it's a ropes course or a bed of nails or a pulley swing, there is something for everyone to try and explore!

We had a blast riding rides and being shocked at all the weird and wild obstacles. We also did the rope obstacle coarse. This was scary for Mom, but Dad and 9yr. Old daughter were not scared at all walking on ropes and wooden steps while 18ft above everyone down below. Great time for all ages!
