WonderWorks, Orlando

3.2
Interactive educational exhibits in physics, math, and space aren't the only wonders at WonderWorks. These exhibits are displayed in an upside-down house designed by Terry Nicholson that looks as if it was lifted from the ground and dropped on its roof atop another building. Along with the educational exhibits that turn science into games, you'll find laser tag and rope courses that traverse multiple floors inside the building.

  • The construction is phenomenal, very cool to take pictures and take the children play, but for adults the picture by now I think that would be enough.

  • Great way to spend a rainy day with kids. Facility has lots of interactive activities for kids from 5 and up. The 4 D roller coaster ride can be adjusted for different thrill experiences - a smaller c...  more »
  • It's a very cool facade to take pictures from the outside. I found the price too salty to get in the House ... but my goal was just pictures and thanks.

  • For an afternoon of great fun, definitely check out Wonder Works. This is like a science center on steroids. The exhibits are educational and full of fun. They even have arcade games that are included in the price of your ticket. There is rope climbing, a basketball shootout game, hurricane room, bubble lab, laser tag, roller coaster simulators, and so much more. You only need about 3-4 hours to get through the whole place. A whole day will not be required. They close pretty late, so you can come around 4PM with time to spare. Let me tell you about their magic comedy show. They serve all you can eat pizza, salad, and drinks. For my gluten-free friends, they even have a pizza for us! Be sure to let them know at least 45 minutes before the show starts so that they can prepare it for you. The show itself is not a Vegas show, but it is entertaining and good clean fun. Next time I'm in the Orlando area, I will be back!
  • From the architecture to the activities, it will not disappoint. This is great for kids and adults alike. It’s entertaining and educational with plenty of photo ops. Loved that there was a great variety of free arcade games, brain teasers, as well as amusement-like simulators. The must-see attractions are the bubble lab, simulator roller coaster, and hurricane simulator. My girlfriend and I did the ultimate package with the magic dinner show. We highly recommend it especially if you are visiting Orlando. It’s a science center on steroids.
  • This place is really cool. They have a ton of interactive activities for both kids and adults. They cover all the basic physics concepts and space flight in fun and intersting ways. There is a 4D theater, ropes course, laser tag, and other fun activities. This is a great concept to show kids STEM activities and keep them interested. Some of the science museums would benefit from what they do at this place.
  • I did enjoy this place a lot! About as much as my 9 year old daughter... if there was a half point, I would give 4.5 stars for sure. I just wish there was a bit more original ideas, I’ve seen a lot of the same stuff down the street at Ripley’s. Ton of stuff to do inside this place! If my daughter hadn’t been such a scaredy cat, I would’ve loved to try out the rides! The ropes course is awesome! For those of you who aren’t afraid of heights like myself ;) Print out any coupons or tickets you purchase in advance, they don’t accept mobile versions. Although they do very nicely have a computer and printer to allow you to print if needed. This place was better than I expected. You should go. Enjoy our goofy pics! 😂
  • It's a fun place to go with children or on a date. Lots of cool things to do there that aren't stressing like major rides. There's a roller coaster simulator that you should try. Laser tag is also cool and always people around to fill in a larger fight.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
