kids had a blast! lots of things for lots of ages. The only down side was you don't know you you can't wear sandles or flip flops or be bare foot for a couple things & it's summertime so what does everyone wear & if we had known you could leave & come back anytime during the day on one... More

Yes, it was raining and as I've read now from others "Don't go when it's raining!" Stood in the rain for 30 minutes after finally finding a place to park. When we got inside it was severely over packed to the point I wondered about floor load. Long lines, broken rides and not being able to move around in the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review WonderWorks Panama City Beach. We appreciate all of our guests and want to hear about their recent visits. It is difficult on rainy days, when our guests have to wait in line to get in and then wait in line for rides and exhibits. I know that it is hard to believe,... More

We visited with 6 kids ranging from 8-14 and they all had a great time. If you're looking for something fun to do indoors for a few hours, it's worth the money. Skip the laser tag, the kids said it wasn't that great. They offer military discount too and you can get coupons at all area hotels or online.

The course is nicely laid out and fun for the whole family. Very clean and reasonably priced. Pirate theme and history was fun to read as we putted around the course.

Wonder works was a little pricey but it was a fun day! We got a combo ticket which included laser tag, Ripleys believe it or not and 7d movie and it was around $160 for family of four. Wonder works included many interactive activities, a rope course and laser tag. The kids loved the virtual roller coaster. It took us... More

Last summer, I took my kids, 11 and 7, and spent hours having fun exploring every nook and cranny of this cool hands-on museum. This year, we went because it was rainy outside. We had a totally different experience. We literally did NOTHING fun because it was so ridiculously crowded. We couldn't move around freely or get to any exhibits... More

Thank you for visiting WonderWorks Panama City Beach and taking the time to review us. I am glad to hear that you had an enjoyable experience last year, but I am saddened by your most recent visit. Rainy days during the summer are extremely busy and unfortunately that results in long lines for all of our guests. We would love... More

As others have stated, this is a fun spot...I went late at night so crowds had thinned out but several exhibits need repair to warrant the high cost of the admission.

This place is not worth the money. Long lines and games are broken! Four stories but one is for lazer tag which is over crowded so you run over people. The first floor has "rides" but was broken so the ones open had lines up the wazoo. Third floor had a few games and a coaster simulator. Fourth was four... More

A co-worker recommended that I visit here during my vacation in Panama City. I arrived about an hour after the place opened and the crowd was about right so I didn't have to wait to try out the rides and attractions. However, a few of the attractions didn't work. The flight simulators were very faulty and apparently neglected by the... More
