Last week, I discussed the Hollywood Wax Museum, and how much we enjoyed the place during our stay in Pigeon Forge, TN. The wax museum isn’t the only attraction at the entertainment center. There are also two other interesting “must do’s” in the next building over.
This building looks a lot like a castle you’d see from folk tales. It makes me think of stories that involve dragons and damsels in distress!
The Castle of Chaos is a very fun 5-D experience. It’s like a 3-D movie…with a video game and ride mixed in! It’s actually the first 5-D attraction in the entire world. I have to admit, I was a little spooked when we entered the theater – maybe I’m just a scaredy cat with a huge fear of the unknown.
We were given the classic 3-D glasses as we entered the door, and then were instructed to sit down and pull the bar down into our lap. It was nice to have a safety bar…especially since I had no idea what was about to come! The bar had a box with a score on (it was zeroed out when we sat down). To my right was a gun connected to the side of my chair. I looked over to James, already holding his pistol. I couldn’t help but think of Men in Black!
When the show started, we found out our mission and that our scores would be tracked on the bar. The entire ride was crazy fun, and I was sad to see that James beat me by a few points! Apparently my aim isn’t all that good. The Castle of Chaos is definitely an interesting ride in a world all it’s own!
Once we finished with that attraction, we went into Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors. First, we were given plastic gloves to wear – to keep the mirrors clean – and told the story of Hannah. She was a beautiful young woman who loved to spend most of her days just looking at herself…which landed her in lots of trouble. You have to find her before time runs out!
The maze features 288 potential turns, all of which can make for a difficult rescue! It was fun though…even when James and I seemed to make it back to the starting point three times before we finally made our way through the maze. I’ve never been through a mirror maze before, and they are definitely a more challenging than your average maze made of corn, walls, etc!
While it was challenging, Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors was still fun and could be enjoyed by younger children as well as teens and adults.
