  • HOW IS THIS PLACE STILL OPEN?! lol Literally nothing has been updated in 35 years (I know, I went as a kid too). Exhibits are lame, presentation is poor, lighting is bad, and it takes maybe 15-20 minutes from beginning to end. This place is a joke.
  • NO STARS!!! and thats being generous because the mountain air has made me nice than usual. Only thing we got is the memory of doing Gatlinburgs WORST attraction!
  • I & mom was first time 2005 & free in. Oh my gosh no good activities different things so bored and not like it. No thanks visit again there and still so bored. 👎🙈
  • Terrible. Spent 30 dollars for the family to be disappointed. This place is a nasty place. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. TERRIBLE
  • This place was neat 25 years ago...but nothing has changed or been maintained over that time.
