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.

The cave is not your typical cave and is pretty boring if you have seen others. It does have some unique features with such as flint in bedrock but nithing like other caves in the area. I would make the 45 minute drive to Natural Bridge cave.

Yes, They still run the glass bottom boats, but now that TSU has bout the old park, it is being converted into a nature area for school trips. This will be great for the schools and the students to learn about nature and the springs feeding the area.

Arrived with minimal expectations to amuse my 6yr old grandson, but was pleasantly surprised with our Guide Nikko, as he was not only informative, but made our tour fun. Pretty good when someone can capture the attention of a 6yr old for an hour and a half! The cave was neat, as well as the other parts of this attraction.... More

We ventured to Wonder World because we were bored for the day. I felt like a little kid again excited to see things I hadn't before. The gift shop was perfect for kids, there were all the things I remember looking for as a kid that I had to have! Our tour guide for the caves was awesome, informative, and... More
