We took 4 kids and 8 adults and everyone had a great time. We spent over 3 hours here. Ropes course was an unexpected addition at regular price.

“OMG! Sooo cool and fun for everyone!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Loved it!! Wasn't sure what was inside but it is very worth it. You will not be disappointed. Something for everyone. We are 50, son is 11 and had two 20 yr. olds, we all had a blast. Allow plenty of time to be able to try everything. Lots of great photo ops and cool art too! Pretty amazing! Don't walk, run to this place!... Especially awesome for a rainy day time filler. There is a flight of stairs between each level, I assume there were elevators for those who can't take stairs. You can buy pkg deal for Wonderworks and Ripleys and 4D Imax experience and make a whole day of it. You can leave and come back all day on one ticket. Great deal!!

“A twist on an attraction!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

It was such a fun time. Definately different. We had such a fun time. It's amazing to look at from the outside and all of the things in the inside keep you engaged and interested. So fun!

“Family Fun”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Before we came to PCB, I had researched places to take the kids other than the beach. This won hands down after looking on their website. It is a little pricey, but if you do the combo ticket with Ripley's, it's not so bad. It's a good alternative for those rainy days, or if you are too sunburned and just need to get out of the heat.

We traveled with a 10, 9 and 2 year old. Honestly, there isn't too much to do with the youngest, but he was entertained watching the older kids. Quite frankly, he was a little freaked out by the loud noises and loud things going on, so he was happy just to ride in the stroller, for the most part.

The lines to some of the activities were long, especially the simulated ride. We waited for a LONG time, which became even longer when a group before us lost a shoe in the ride. It took forever for them to find it, but I'm grateful they did. I didn't want to get hit in the face with it as the ride twisted up, down and all around. There were (2) rides, but only one was operational.

My oldest rode all of the crazy rides, like the 360 bike and the gyroscope. It was just fun to watch.

Our last day in town was a rainy day, so we went to Ripley's. My oldest and I went on the 4D ride, which we enjoyed. Everything else was looking at artifacts, which was enjoyable, too. The Laser Room was also cool. I'm pretty sure Ripley's would be hard pressed to sell tickets if it weren't a combo. While we liked it, the value without Wonderworks would not be the same.

“A great way to spend a day.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

A very fun and imaginative place to take the family. You can spend hours or the entire day going through and enjoying the exhibits . It's a bit pricey but still great fun.
