My family had a magnificent time at WonderWorks. We went at 5pm-9pm to avoid a long line of people, and for the discount. My 5 year old enjoyed the crazy entrance, the bed of nails, the bubble center, the grand piano, tic-tac-toe center, the games, and the huge lite-brite. My 13 year old and I enjoyed the rope course, the... More

The place was terribly crowded, and after the visit, I could see why. There was a LOT to do. Lots of educational things to do. Lots of challenges, lots of fun. some of the exhibits did not work, which was not too good, especially when it was something I love (Flight Simulator). The drawbacks were: Some of the patrons were...

We visited on a chilly day during Easter break and it was way too crowded. I know they have to make money but it was so crowded that I actually felt that it would be unsafe if there was a fire or something. Never got to play laser tag because the line was over 2 hours. Kids had an ok... More

Thank you for your feedback in reference to your recent visit. Spring break is a very busy time for us. Lines were held outside of the building to ensure we did not exceed safety capacity. Team members walked the lines to answer and inform guests who were waiting and signs are posted at the admissions counters to notify guests to... More

This will be short and sweet. Unless your children are under the age of 12 save your money. The place was over priced and boring! If you are looking for some family fun in myrtle beach Pirates Voyage was entertaining and enjoyed by my family from ages 15-40

The place is like a big arcade game inside but with lots and lots of line. Really not worth time and the money. Even our son did not like it.

Fortunately, we had made an advance ticket purchase. Unlike the poor souls who had to stand in line for almost two hours. We were ushered to the head of the line past all of the waiting families. We went right in and it was a real sensory experience. We adults pretty much stayed out of the way so as not... More
