Only did the cave tour. The rest of the attractions screamed tourist trap. The cave is interesting, but kind of dull. It is a dry cave, and they do point out the fault line, but when compared with the Natural Bridge Caverns tour and sights...it does not hold up. Especially for the price. If you are bored in San Marcos... More

Of the two caverns in the area, this is the best. Funner and less restrictive than the competition. The staff is absolutely wonderful and FUN!

Right after the well, I had the creepiest feeling of something pushing against my chest! totally creeped me out! One other person on the tour had an odd feeling, said the hairs on his neck stood up! Im sensitive, im just wondering if someone died in that spot. Just made my heart race. Over priced, moldy, pretty lame, but 70... More

First time we went to Wonder World was back in the late 80's with our children. We now visited with our grandchildren and we had a blast. The cave is not that big as to be intimidating for the young ones and the other 3 things included, visiting the 150 ft. tall tower, the anti-gravity house, and the petting zoo... More

We took our 3yr old son because I knew this was the right age for Wonder World. I used to come here as a kid myself. Save a few bucks and look for the coupons on the website or in the informational pamphlets at your hotel. The cave tour takes you 93 feet below the surface and that was plenty... More

The caves were fun and the guide was extremely informative. Its nice to be in a casual atmosphere and the kids really enjoyed it. The Petting zoo and tower were fun. the anti Gravity house was a favorite among the kids.

I went here as a kid over 30 years ago and decided to take my kids also. Its kinda expensive (over $65 for three of us) but the cavern is neat and the zero gravity house was fun. The train ride through the wildlife park was interesting with quite a few animals to see. Give yourself a couple of hours... More

I took 3 kids: 11, 9 and 7; all loved it! Even my husband and I enjoyed it. The anti-gravity house and feeding the deer was especially fun. Worth the time and money.

We have visited "live" caves before. Live caves have growing stalactites and stalagmites. This cave tour was interesting even though it does not have any growths. There is also the gravity house. My kids enjoyed this most. Nice day trip from San Antonio.

There's a lot to do here - two to three hours at least. Cave tour, observation tower, anti-gravity house, small zoo. Picnic area if you are inclined. The cave is a dry cave, which means the kids can touch the walls without damaging anything. The tour does involve a lot of stairs and low ceilings so a bit of personal... More
