We recently took a group of kids ages 4 to 15 to celebrate our daughters birthday weekend while in Pigeon Forge. This was the first time for most all of our kids. They had a blast and really enjoyed the many activities. It was a relatively low crowd which allowed them to enjoy all the areas without much waiting. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is due to some of the workers and our kids experience with them. Most were younger and just were not nice. For example one of the kids in our party wanted to try the ropes course (he is uncomfortable with heights but wanted to give it a try though). He made it to the first station and just could not make it across the first obstacle. So one of the oldest kids took him back down. As they were coming back down the workers made out loud comments to each other to the effect of "don't they know that it is a ropes course" " if they are scared of heights why did they get on this". Of course our kids felt belittled by the rudeness of the workers. I mainly just chalked it up to young workers, but when you spend $100 for a family of five you expect a little more. Overall I think this is a great place for the family but they need some work in the service areas.

It was an interesting mix of science-based displays, games, and rides. Fascinating stuff, and there was a light crowd the day I went. There were other things to do, but I just got the basic ticket and was well satisfied. Was a little confused at the end, though. While the emergency exits were well marked, the actual exit wasn't clear to me.

This was alot of fun. There was stuff to do everywhere you turned. It was a bit crowded so you would have to wait in line but it was well worth the visit.

I had a wonderful time! There were so many awesome things. I loved the the bubbles and the high ropes course. The staff was very friendly and helpful in more ways than one. ;) Far more than the other attractions that I experienced. It is a great place where you can spend a large amount of your time.

It's so crowded that you can't get to the good stuff, and there's not a lot of that. Most of it is mundane and tiresome. The show was typical. Nothing special. Food was below average. Won't be going back.
