PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A new exhibit in Pigeon Forge will let you experience life in the army and test your skills with a gun.

WonderWorks in Pigeon Forge has opened an all new attraction with the Virtual Army Experience. The exhibit will allow guests ages 13 and up sit in a humvee and test their skills on a virtual battlefield.

The exhibit is similar to a large scale video game.

Also new this year, visitors can explore an over-sized version of a Lite-Brite and become a human lightening rod by touching 100,000 volts of electricity inside the Tesla Coli exhibit. Plus, visitors can be blown away by 65-mile per hour hurricane-force winds,
