This place was quite a surprise. I wasn't sure what to expect and didn't think I'd be spending half the day there! It is very reasonably priced, although the laser tag option is extra. Most exhibits are interactive and appeal to a variety of ages. It is best to go early in the day to avoid long lines at the... More

I have lived in the Myrtle beach area for 13 years and this was my first trip to the upside down monstrosity. My advice to you is to WEAR EARLUGS ! Maybe I missed the earplug vending machine at the entrance, but Wonderworks is 3 levels of NOISE bleeding into and from other NOISE. I'm curious how many decibel levels... More

This place is awesome... Different things for you to choose from, it's a little pricey, but the laser tag and rope course are worth it.

It cost almost 25.00 to enter, as I did not have a coupon. From the outside, it looks great and exciting. However, after entering I was gravely disappointed with the amount of exhibits. Not all was bad, the create your own coaster was quite fun, however they only have 2 and the wait was very long for the exhibit.

Much better than most of the kitschy tourist attractions offered at MB. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Kids enjoyed the major attractions such as the 360 bike, roller-coaster simulator, bed of nails, and ropes course. Best is that they attempt to provide information and border line education around most of the exhibits. For example, why one nail would pierce... More

Kids had so much fun exploring all the things to do in "the upside-down house!" Highly recommend the 6D movie and the ropes course.

WonderWorks is over-priced and under staffed. It was very crowded the day we went and the bigger kids and even some adults were cutting in front of the little one. Once we passed the admission area, I did not see another employee until we left. They really need to have staff present to keep the order and keep the little... More

Summer months are very busy at our venue and multiple team members are stationed throughout the building. General admission grants all day access to the over 100 interactive exhibits, providing several hours of activities for all ages While we cannot police every action of every person, any improper behaviors witnessed directly by or reported to our team members is addressed....

From the outside it is hard to decide if this is a place you want to visit, however, it is definitely worth the visit. We spent all afternoon there. So many cool things to do. It is kind of like a playground for teens and adults. This is really not a place for young kids though.

This may have been fun had it not been for a school group visiting with lack of adult supervision. The 2 "teachers" stood on a corner chatting the entire time while the 20+ students (maybe 6th graders) ran hog wild. They were rude. They hit my 8 year old too many times to count. They cut lines. They didn't take... More

Actually, we already do have an adult chaperone to child ratio for field trips that has been in effect since opening and is agreed upon by the schools attending. Did you request to speak with a manager and report your encounter with this one particular group? Assuredly, the situation would have been addressed immediately then. Please contact us directly to...
