We partnered with WonderWorks Pigeon Forge on this posts in exchange for tickets. All opinions are own own.

Long before The Upside Down in Stranger Things, there was the Upside Down building in Pigeon Forge. It’s a much more family-friendly attraction in Tennessee without a single Demogorgon in sight. Check out WonderWorks Pigeon Forge!

WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge, TN, is known as the Upside Down building.

Why Is WonderWorks Upside Down?

There’s actually a really neat interactive room in WonderWorks that tells the story of how Professor Wonder and his building ended up – or rather, upside down – in Pigeon Forge.

The story of why WonderWorks Pigeon Forge is upside down

The truth is that WonderWorks was once a top-secret laboratory located in the Bermuda triangle. An experiment gone awry lifted the laboratory carrying it to Music Drive in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where it landed upside down. Luckily all of the exhibits remained intact and available for guests to explore.

How Long Does WonderWorks Take?

It seems that around every corner of this fun-filled building is another exhibit or immersive experience. You can move at your own pace, taking as much or as little time at any exhibit that you’d like.

WonderWorks features over 100 hands-on exhibits and interactive displays

We were there for about 2.5 hours but I would have liked to stay longer. I would honestly budget at least 3-4 hours in your day for the over 100 hands-on exhibits and interactive displays. You’ll also find a 4D XD Motion Theater, Laser Tag, and a magnificent Glow-in-the-Dark Ropes Course.

Throughout their 35,000 square feet of “edu-tainment”, you can feel for yourself how cold the North Atlantic Ocean was when The Titanic sank, relive the earthquake of ’89, create 3D images of your body, lay on a bed of nails, stomp out aliens, land a space shuttle, ride on a virtual roller coaster, and more.
