We are local residents who have seen this show 3 times in the last two years. It is fun, interactive, and fast paced. We held our 10 year old son Jacks' birthday party here. The boys had a blast! The tricks, the pizza, everything involved just made a great night for the boys. Several games of lazer tag finished off the evening just right... I've also gotten tickets for members of my business, and they've always come back saying they had a big time and really enjoyed their experience. If you're a fan of magic, or are just looking for something to do that's fun on the drive, this is by far the best value and most fun around! We've been to just about everything available, and we always come back for more at the OUTTA CONTROL MAGIC SHOW!

While on vacation in Daytona, my wife and I figured we would check this place out as our niece and nephew will be going with us next year....Upon arriving we were genuinely interested, the outside was fascinating to say the least. Entering the attraction was a whole other story. After shelling out $42 for the both of us we were expecting to have a good time. We were wrong.......The majority of the attractions and displays didn't work....The staff was unhelpful and often outright rude. In my honest opinion i do not see how they stay open, they have to be giving out a lot of refunds....right?!?! Wrong they wouldn't even give us a refund, only a free pass for "next time" Save your money, go to Ripley's.

We ended up at Wonderworks when rain and tornado warnings shut down the parks and pools. As a way to kill an afternoon, it was not bad. Not great, but not bad. My two sons, ages 9 and 12, loved the science oriented exhibits, at least the ones that weren't broken. Nothing here is exactly cutting edge in terms of technology, about what you would find in the average children's or science museum such as an earthquake simulator that shakes a cubicle or a giant soap bubble maker. The e-ticket ride are two flight simulators on the top floor that one finds in high-end video arcades or as a shopping mall attraction. Being that we were there on a rainy day, the place was jam packed with people and the lines for the simulators exceeded an hour. There is also a pretty good laser tag area but that costs extra over the rather exorbitant entry fee. We had pizza at the snack bar, served by the surliest teenager in Orlando, that was better than Pizza Hut but not as good as say Cici's.

I wouldn't recommend from this place unless it were raining, in which case it is a major upgrade from hotel room television or the cineplex. If you do go, pick up discount tickets at the Orlando Visitor's center half a mile north on I-drive. You can also get a 2 for one meal coupon and 10 free arcade tokens.

We spent 2 hours inside. There is so many things to do for the kids. This place is a must to see. Allow approx 4 hours for the stuff there.
We also did the dinner magic show. This was very nice and funny for me and the kids!

My husband and I took our eight year old sun to Wonder Works and had such a great time. It is a wonderful place to educate your child! He was thrilled. To top it off, we ended up playing Laser Tag with Joey Fatone from NSYNC!
