We took our 5 and 6 year old and a lot of the attractions didn't work. Since a lot of the more popular attractions weren't working the lines were long and we know the patience of a 5 and 6 year old is short. The simulator needs to have a seat belt that is tighter so the smaller kids don't... More

I wasn't as happy with WonderWorks, as I thought I would be. I expected it to be more well rounded, but found that the exhibits and activities seem more geared towards younger kids. It's probably a great place for kids between 6-16. I don't think it's really meant for adults. Still though, it was clean and had a lot of... More

Great fun. Lots to do for kids and adults as well. They have several floors of activities included in the ticket. We also got tickets for one of the 7-D adventure rides, which was okay. Long wait in line and not as exciting as we'd expected. A cool place to spend a hot afternoon!

We visited on Thursday on the 24th of July. I had a great time with my family! It was such a wonderful experience, even though it was very crowded. The kids loved the ropes course the most, and loved laser tag! This was a fun experience on a rainy afternoon! We were sad that we couldn't get to see the... More

Expensive and if your child isn't tall enough for the games. Don't go.It was okay like i said. I wouldn't go again until my son goes. Its kinda beat up. They need to fix it up a bit.

I was a bit concerned after reading some of the more recent negative reviews, but our extended family had a blast exploring the interactive exhibits and riding the rides. Our group consisted of three young children, two teens, two young adults and two grand-parents. All of us had a great time. Cameras are allowed, so we were able to take... More

I should have received a refund. Nowhere did it say that heavier people couldn't enjoy the exhibits but was forbidden. Also most were multi-rider attractions. No signs telling me any of this.

A great time had by all!!! The kids enjoyed themselves. Had a great time doing the exhibits. My grandson, 8, was disappointed because he wasn't old enough to do the black hawk. He was looking forward to doing that. We would go back.

We have been here before in mid day and this time was much better, simply because lines were shorter and we enjoyed more!!

The price is kind of high for what you get. There are a lot of facts, and interesting things, in this museum, but a lot of that you have to read, and the kids don't like to read. There are also a lot of things to do that you don't have to read. The kids like the bed of nails,... More
