  • We had fun with my kids. Only development feedback I can say is that machines were old and some of the equipments were not working. Hence it was not the best value spend for us For 16$/adult and 10$/ ...  more »

  • This was a lot of fun! Full of interesting facts and records. There were also opportunities for kids (and adults) to set their own records. It was busy when I was there but not super crowded.
  • They recently renovated and have a ton of interactive exhibits. Highly recommend registering, because when you do, all of your interactions are recorded as official attempts at world records in the off chance you can beat one. This is a lot better than it used to be. It is totally worth it to purchase a combo pass from the aquarium and see all 10 attractions in the area.
  • This place was really neat. My husband and I went as a package deal to the aquarium and other attractions. This isn't a place to go if you don't have kids. We had fun but felt a bit out of place with all the games.
  • I went in 2014, and LOVED IT! Of course things have changed since then though. I don't know if they still have it or not, but the world's largest rubber band ball was in the front. If it is still like that I'd highly recommend this. I'd go back if our drive wasn't as long. They had a picture of Gatlinburg'idk' biggest tree, had a huge tire, life size versions of the largest man and woman, etc! Idk if they switched the stuff out of and thing but in 2014 it was an amazing place!
  • I visited the Guinness World Records Museum and although it was interesting enough, it wasn't anything to write home about. Many of the exhibits were outdated or simply didn't work. I have read they are currently renovating, so that will probably take care of this issue. I thought the museum was very similar to Ripley's, which may have also lessened my enjoyment of the place. (I visited this one second.) I thought my kids would really enjoy this because they love the World Record books, however they were less than impressed with this experience.
