This indoor attraction began as a Top Secret facility on a remote island, in the middle of the Bermuda Triangle. As legend has it, one experiment went awry, in an attempt to harness the power of a man-made tornado, the entire laboratory was hurtled skyward, hundreds of miles away, and it landed upside down in the heart of Pigeon Forge, TN.
