“High Flying Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

Went to wonder works on a Sunday night. Good Choice because we were able to zip around on the rope-course with little to no traffic. Two family members backed out because we were 3 stories up in the air of the newest area of the mall. My oldest son who is normally afraid of heights felt secure in his harness and found in himself the courage to explore the course. Great Fun

“VERY DISAPPOINTING”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

We recently had my sons 10th birthday party at wonder works. I can honestly say it was NOT worth the $. Not to say there isnt lots to see and do but if I had to do it all again I would order pizza to eat out in the mall area & just buy the tickets to go in. We felt like we were a part of an assembly line being rushed along & pushed from one point to the next. Not to mention we had an incident where a member of our party was late & the staff refused to help them find us ( we were in the party room) & made them pay for the child, the mom looking for us & the 2 year old she couldn't leave alone outside when she wandered around looking for us. The employee was rude to us & we later caught her talking about us to other employees. All in all it was a VERY DISAPPOINTING day.

“Quite impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

On our first visit to Destiny, the Saturday night crowd seemed too much for my 7, 9 and 10-year old to fully enjoy the Canyon Ropes experience so we came back on Monday afternoon and they had a really good time. The three levels of rails and bridges offer a lot of challenges, with a range of options for all degrees of young Indiana Jones at heart. Next time, I'll join the kids and show them I can do it too!

“Great Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

My daughter (11) and I went to Woder Works on a Saturday morning. It was not that crowded at that time. We did pay about $45.00 for the two of us, which I thought was a bit pricey. Overall it was alot of fun....there were alot of exhibits to do. I don't feel an adult should pay that much. Overall Great Time and something different for the Syracuse area.
