We were vacationing for a long weekend in Myrtle Beach. We went to WonderWorks on a day it was cloudy and rainy. My biggest tip would be to get there as soon as it opens. We have 10 and 7 year old girls and they loved it - my husband I thought it was neat, too. There were many fun activities on every floor, and they veen have a ropes course on the top floor that is included in the price. We also did the laser tag which the girls love. Definitely a place to visit when you're in Myrtle Beach.

My husband, myself and my 6 year old son spotted this amazing sight of an attraction while driving through MB and decided we would stop on our way back through on July 7th and it was a huge waste of money. I do believe it would be a fun place during off season. There were too many tourists and too little employees to keep people moving or keep lines in order. My husband and son waited over an hour to do 1 thing. There were many things (probly over half) we didn't even attempt due the the massive amount of people waiting. We even paid for laser tag and ducked out of that as well because we were just fed up and hot.

I wish we would have skipped this attraction and saved our money.

Word if advice: The most interesting part of this place is standing outside looking at the building, and that part is free! Inside, it is so crowded that it's impossible to do anything with the exhibits other than look at them from afar. Not to mention that it's extremely cramped and stifling hot.

Not only was this a huge waste of money, more importantly it was a huge waste of time. Lesson learned.

We have gone to all kinds of places, this place is nothing more than a glorified "chuck e cheese" but when you get to the front door rather than a stamp that matches you to your kids they take 90 bucks for a family of 4. We spent 30 minutes in the place and every person working there seemed to be put off when you asked questions and didn't know what they were doing. (typical summer staff... we get it and expected that) What we didn't expect is after the first 20' of the really cool spinning tube that throughs your balance of it goes down hill from there. A wind machine that blows like a hair dryer, a display to flip a coin??? really? each floor had one exibit that was interesting. The bubble factory was an absolute mess where you could not do anything even if you wanted to. We are very disappointed and will only people we don't like to go there. The aquarium is better, walking around planet hollywood before you meal comes is better and you can save money and not be treated like cattle. The only cool thing about this place can be seen from the street. We will never go back.

We went to the Wonderworks in Pigeon Forge during the school year a few years ago and had a good time. This Wonderworks was a major disappointment. The building is smaller, the attractions are much more cramped, and too many people are competing to use exhibits for this to be fun. Plus, a large portion of the building is devoted to arcade games that cost even more money. Major ripoff.
