This is another one of those Non=Disney attractions that will keep the whole family busy. It has hands on activities, virtual games, and an entire game arcade on the top floor. The arcade also has an overhead walking area that kids can do, wearing a safety harness. It's also neon lit, looks cool! The weather/earthquake simulators are great, and they now have a HUGE google earth map when you enter the first room. If you feel gutsy, step up and lie on the bed of nails, or play the virtual air hockey. Enjoy your trip!

We thought there was more to wonderworks than there actually was. As you enter the first floor there are a few cool exhibitions. The bed of nail and mind ball were cool. Not very good value for money.

We had some time to spend in Orlando and had seen WonderWorks a few times from the road so we thought we'd give it a try. There was a coupon for a few dollars off each ticket in a travel brochure, which helped bring the cost down a tiny bit. As we arrived we were disappointed to see a busload of little campers pulling up at the same time, but oh well.
The WonderWorks staff was friendly and helpful. My kids, ages 10 & 13, found plenty to do here to stay entertained for at least 2 hours. Because of the campers, the lines for some of the activities were too long to wait, but we were happy to see that the campers weren't going to the ropes course.
We enjoyed the bubble room, the 'shadow wall', the basketball toss, the 'floating head' cube, the bed of nails, and the ropes course best. The map we purchased on the way in paid for itself with the coupons included in the back for 10 free game tokens, a savings at the café for lunch, and a savings at the gift shop. We were glad we went.

We arrived here with our granddaughter and there were only 4 or 5 families ahead of in the queue, but the reception staff were so slow dealing with ticketing, that it took over half an hour to get to the stage of purchasing tickets. We went onto the 1st floor, which was full of very large noisy groups of schoolchildren, meaning that we could not get anywhere near the activities for our granddaughter to have a turn. The noise was deafening so we decided to abandon this area and try the cafe. The choice of food is quite poor but as our granddauger was hungry we decided to try it. The food was cooked to order and turned out to be quite tasty. There are several arcade machines in the cafe area, none of which were being used, but all were throwing out very loud noise and music. It was not possible to have a conversation without raising your voice. There are much better attractions in Orlando.

Purchased the magician show with general admission and I am so glad I did. We laughed so much while eating unlimited pizza, drinks, popcorn and dessert. It was well worth the extra money. My 7 yr. old grandaughter got picked to go up on stage which she loved. Overall, great time. They had so much interesting and educational activities which was challenging. My grandkids loved the laser tag and the 4d movie was wild. One thing which we didnt know which was a bummer because we couldnt do, was that the rope walk you need closed in shoes to participate. We all had sandals. Other than that, we had a fantastic time
