“WonderWorks & Outta Control Magic Show”
Reviewed February 2, 2010

We went on Christmas Day, was cool and raining so we wanted an indoor activity that would be fun for my husband, 21-yr. old son and I and WonderWorks fit the bill. The exhibits were fun, took about 2 hrs. to go through everything. I think families with school-age kids would enjoy this the most. Kind of crowded, understandably on a holiday, a bit worn around the edges but still a good time. The highlight was the dinner show. Family-friendly magic show (still entertaining for adults), very attentive and fast servers. Food was served family-style and there was plently for everyone. Consisted of unlimited home-made cheese or pepperoni pizza, garden salad (both very good), and some sort of frosted poundcake for dessert (not as good). Plus unlimited drinks: softdrinks, beer or wine. Total price for WonderWorks and show was only approx. $28 each. Great value for money compared to other attractions in Orlando!

“A fantastic family outing!”
Reviewed February 1, 2010

I had been planning a trip to the 'Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show" for months and simply could not fit it into the budget. After the earthquake disaster in Haiti, Wonder Works offered the dinner show at a discount rate and contributed $5 per paying customer to the victims in Haiti. What a wonderful idea!!!! The family and I jumped on the opportunity to see the show at a discounted rate and give back to the Haitian community. The show was interactive, humor on all levels, and overall very entertaining. The food (pizza, popcorn, salad, drinks, and desert) was unlimited!!!!! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it to locals and tourist. The show regularly priced at about $25 per person. Make sure you budget accordingly for fun filled family outing!

“Find yourself a HALF-OFF coupon, then it's worth it”
Reviewed January 17, 2010

I searched the web for half-off combo tickets, I found some, and paid about $21 per person. That price included the "Outta' Control" dinner show & admission to the attractions inside. Personally & Honestly, I would NOT pay more than $21 per person and I don't think your family should either.
The Good Stuff: All-You-Can-Eat pizza, salad, cheap beer, cheap wine & soda. The Servers are great at refills. I told the woman it was (my) mommy's only night to drink...and she kept them coming!! The atmosphere is fun. OKAY, so I wasn't THAT drunk (lol) but I remember the comedian/magician's jokes being mostly about "rednecks". Since I live in Chicago, I didn't get those jokes. He still did a good job working very hard to entertain the audience...filled with mostly senior citizens on some bus tour. Hard to work that crowd, but he tried. The attractions are okay. My kids had fun and the bed of nails was a hit. This is the kind of attraction you'll find in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin or any other tourist area. Where you find a "Ripley's", you'll usually find a "WonderWorks". This attraction can keep you busy for about 2-4 hours tops. As long as you're not paying full price it's good. There's tons of $1.50 off coupons...but personally, I'd keep searching for a better deal.

“Never EVER go there!”
Reviewed January 9, 2010

Wonderworks was absolutely horrible! I was excited to go but it ended up being too crowded and half the attractions were broken! I wish they would have told us we were going to have to wait in line for every single little thing because we would have saved us lots of time and money. Even if we didn't have to wait in line this place is not worth it. Worst part of our entire vacation.
