  • I read the reviews, I thought this place was quirky. Yeah a little cheesy but I thought it was cute and not very expensive. So much in pigeon forge and Gatlinburg is pricey. So, read the reviews make ...  more »

  • The outside is far more interesting then inside. When you enter there are cheesy magic tricks on the wall some lighting illusions that are simple. Some of the displays do not function due to lack of maintenance. Before you know it there is the exit!?!? and you are left with the biggest illusion this place has to offer which is the outside seem far bigger then the inside.
  • Whish I can give 0. In 5 minutes you are out. Once you enter they have optic illusions in the wall, nothing that you haven't seen in social media. Waste of money. They day I went 8/20 it was raining and they had leaks. All the floor was wet and you could see the water running thru, my husband told the cashier and they came with a bucket and mop. Would NOT recommend!
  • I can barely remember anything I saw. Come here as a last resort.
  • 0 stars is what it actually deserves!!! Going into this we had high hopes! The front entrance is very exciting for children, like our 5 and 3 year old boys. The building has a wrecked plane, spiderman, and star wars figurines at the entry leading you to believe that this is a child friendly attraction. WHAT A MISTAKE! We came out the way we came in after about the 3rd exhibit ( if that's even what you want to call it.) The first exhibits were pieces of paper framed on the wall (like the exhibits you see passed around online for free.) Then after rounding a corner we passed the grim reaper and a seance and that was enough to let us know that that's not something we are spending our money or time on! I'm not spending my vacation putting these things in my young children's heads. So after coming back out the entrance we came in, I ask the cashier "are there any child friendly exhibits here? You advertise spiderman and things but that's not what we're seeing." Her clipped response was "well it's supposed to be illusions, so.." I respond "well I'm not taking my kids to see the things I'm seeing and shouldn't have to pay for this." Of course her response is the classic " no you can't have your money back" and the ever infamous "I just work here." HORRIBLE WASTE OF MONEY AND ABSOLUTELY NO INTEGRITY!
  • A total waste of time and money. This is the worst thing my family has ever done in Tennessee! Wouldn't recommend this for anyone with children. Stay at your cabin & play a board game!
