Never been in a cave? Go here.

Nice way to get your kids to see caves/caverns up close and personal and experience them rather than just read about them in books. Also has a nice little train ride and a gift... read more

Wanna know why it's called Wonder World? Because after you go, you wonder why you went! No, seriously, Wonder World is the most awesome 50/50 cool/cheesy roadside attraction that used to make family cross country travel so much fun. These places are disappearing because people want perfect and canned "amazing" experiences. Wonder World is what the American Roadside used to... More

My little ones loved their visit. They are nearly 4 and 2 and this was just their speed. Make sure little ones wear sneakers and if anyone is claustrophobic I'd just skip the cave potion. They did mention that the hours change with the seasons, so it might be a good idea to call ahead to check on the date... More

My 8 year old grandson loved it. I didn't make it down the steps into the cave. My wife confirmed it was close quarters after that. Glad I opted out. We did enjoy the 120 foot tower and we all loved the train ride through the animal park and feeding the deer. My grandson even got to pan for rocks... More

The kids enjoyed it here alot. They would give you a tour on the train ride while feeding the animals, lecture you on history of their cave which is interesting and last but not least, the gravity house was fun for them .They couldn't stand straight. Stayed at the Laquinta in Kyle Texas . Very good hotel nearby...Great weekend getaway.... More

I took my 16-year-old and 7-year-old. We spent just over two hours, a thorough review of the geography of the caves then the tower. Highly educational, absorbing, and the guide was very well informed. The zoo was a bit weak, really not many animals and not that interesting, but it didn't matter as the kids loved it. I do suggest... More

Was kind of hesitant due to the price and then when we drove up I thought I'd payed too much. But, as we took the tour through the cave, then to the 120' tower and the slanted house then on to the train...It was well worth the $$. The train ride was relaxing and we enjoyed looking/feeding the animals. Would... More

Cave tour was was good, the guide was friendly. Didn't like that after $22.00 a person they asked us to tip the guides. The gravity house is cheesy and the wild life park is a joke, (turkeys, deer, emu, peacocks). Suggestion do away with the wild life part put in mini golf, arcades, or go carts and it would be...

Hot Texas sun, I loved Wonder Word we did it in under and hour and it was cool. There were kids everywhere but we still enjoyed the adventure. Easy to get to, no wait time.
