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.

I an 18 year old and this place had me feelin like a 10 year old! I came with a big group of family. We were all different ages so our experience was different. I could tell the ones my age were a bit bored, the 5-7 year olds were having a blast, and the adults were ok. It just... More

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

This place was full of gimmicky stuff that neither adults nor children really enjoy. The line inside just made you want to skip by any thing that was remote entertaining.

This place was awesome....an indoor amusement park. The rides were one of a kind. The 4D movie theater was the best.

My kids loved it 8 and 3, but from a Moms perspective almost 70$ for a few hours was not worth it. There were several attractions that were out of order, most of the working attractions were kind of cheesy and took only seconds to complete. Would I go back??? Only if the kids begged me. Would not otherwise.

We chose this tourist trap over Ripley's (which is right across the street) because it had better reviews. A lot of the things in there were out of order or broken. It was alright, but don't visit PCB just to go there.

This place was really a lot of fun. I went with my mother and father in law and my husband and we all enjoyed it. The only compliant was that we have a couple of heavy weights in our crew and some features are not accessible to people over 250 lbs. That stinks but I do understand that safety comes... More
