Have you ever wondered why the building is upside down? How you’re expected to walk through a building where the floor is the ceiling? How the building harnesses high-voltage electricity and can simulate its own earthquakes? Read on to discover the secrets that Professor Wonder never intended to share.

Very, very awry.
The experiment suddenly became a major error by generating winds much stronger than the Professor was intending. The swirling vortex became too strong to harness, and the winds lifted the building from its foundation and carried it miles across sea, land, and traffic until plopping it (upside down!) in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
