Wow! This was one fun place for all of us - kids and adults. We had passed this attraction on several occasions without stopping or including in our itinerary. We were so glad when we finally did visit to see what this attraction had to offer. It's more than I can describe except to say we'd never before had such... More

This was fun, but not really for young kids and WAY too expensive. It would have been worth half the price for our kids ages.

So glad you came to WonderWorks while you were on your family vacation. We offer "edutainment" for kids of all ages, but our rides do have size requirements for safety purposes. I hope that when your kids are older you'll come back, give us a try and say, "Hello!" Sincerely, Dawn WonderWorks Management Team More

We went to this place with our almost 3 year old, she absolutely loved it! There are interesting exhibits for adults as well as kids. It was not overly expensive and the quality of the place was worth the money you spend.

My son, daughter-in-law, 2 Grandchildren and I had a really nice visit to WonderWorks in Panama City Beach. It kept the children, as well as the adults, entertained. Educational and fun. Also, challenging activities or all. It is a great place to go with family.

Unfortunately, this place was not what we thought it would be and wasn't worth what they charge. I would think twice before going here and wish someone had told me the same.

I just felt like for a family of 4 with kids that could only do 1 out of the 3 "rides" it shouldn't have cost $100. Our very tall for her age 7 year old could only ride one ride which I think was the story for most of the kids there. That ride just had one of the two... More

My kids (6&2) loved that they could go around and touch everything! From flying a plane to playing piano with their feet, they both walked out with happy faces! I loved it more because my daughter (2) was actually able to do things when often she is told she is too small!! Go when you have a lot of time... More
