“Not worth the price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Very pricy. Very crowded. Might be cool if they limited the amount of people in at one time, but they don't as far as I could tell. The lines for each attraction are long and slow. For kids it in sensory overload, I would not recommend taking kids under ten in there. Even for adults it can be a bit much. I left with a headache and a bit irritated.

Thank you for your feedback. Summer months tend to be quite busy here at WonderWorks. All potential guests are advised in advance of purchase of tickets when we are experiencing high volumes both verbally as well as though posted signs at each admission counter. We do limit entry and have line control outside of the building as to not exceed our building’s capacity. We allow more guests to enter as others exit. WonderWorks offers over 100 interactive educational and fun exhibits including but not limited to the indoor ropes challenge course, giant bubble lab, bed of nails, hurricane shack, Titanic exhibit, 360 bikes, brand new XD theater and much more! We would like to hear more about the date and time of your visit. Please contact us directly at guestservices@wonderworksmb.com.

Sincerely,
WonderWorks Management

“Amazing and fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

This place was incredible! While at first it may appear to be more for kids, I will tell you myself (23 years old) and my girlfriend (24) had a ton of fun! The place offers a lot of cool activities including laying on a bed of nails! The most enjoyable part however, was the two story ropes course. Was incredibly fun to try out each course and attempt to conquer a fear of heights and falling. WonderWorks is a blast for all ages, and I would highly recommend for anyone in the area.

“Fun for all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Since it wasn't a great beach day, we decided to visit WonderWorks at Broadway at the Beach. We weren't quite sure what to expect, but all three kids (ages 14, 12, 10) had a blast. They especially loved the indoor rope challenge and spent an hour just going around the course. Make sure you wear sneakers or a closed toe shoe or you will need to "borrow' shoes at some of the attractions. It was expensive, but we thought it was worth the price for the 5 hours we spent inside (unlike the Ripley's Aquarium that only took an hour to go through). We got there the first thing in the morning, so the lines were not long and we were able to visit all of the attractions (the bikes, the movie, the sports challenge, etc.). We did notice that the lines got longer at the attractions later in the morning. Also, it was not raining, so it probably wasn't as crowded as on a rainy day. We really enjoyed our day.

“Nice science edge packed plenty of fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

First hands on place we've been to that doesn't cater solely to preschoolers. Lots of science with plenty of fun. Great option for a rainy day or to get some relief from the hot sun...mornings are least crowded.
