It was so much fun. I went on a date and the cave tour is absolutely amazing. Definitely ask questions while you are on the cave tour because the tour guides are very knowledgable. I felt a little claustrophobic at the beginning of the tour but once we started moving it opened up and I'm so glad I went. N.S.

We arrived at the park early to be some of the first ones through the safari with our kids. We did some walking around while waiting for the gates to that part to open and saw some of the animals there, that was pretty neat. The safari, however, was very lackluster. The best part of going through a safari is... More

We paid $32.50 for a 10 minute ride with one stop and none of the kids able to feed the animals. The driver didn't even give the animals a chance to come up to the train. It was certainly not worth the price of admission. I wish I would have known how awful it was before I paid all that... More

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
