WonderWorks, Orlando

3.1
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.

  • It's something different, a House upside down. I really enjoyed the morning I went to the site, since the hotel was kept in front. Is squeaking and smoking, a lot of fun.

  • Was super fun and kept my 15 year old daughter and myself entertained and laughing the entire time. Tip: allow enough time for lines in the attractions in the basement. The staff keeps them moving ste...  more »
  • Great alternative for a rainy day, but much too crowded when we visited, it was suddenly a bit frustrating sometimes, finally we're out because tired of everybody. It's still nice for young people +-10-12 years, less interesting for the teenagers...

  • Took our kids in the middle of the week, arriving just before 11 am, they're 10 yo and I would say they definitely enjoyed it. We printed off a 2$ coupon, making our entrance with tax, $130 for the 5 of us. You can leave, eat lunch and come back, which is what we did. After reading some of the reviews, we were anticipating it to be packed with summer day camp kids. There were several groups there but it didn't effect waits or bottle neck exhibits, the longest wait for any of the popular areas was 5 to 15 mins. Each time we went to the bathrooms, they were being cleaned, which was nice. The employees were all friendly, especially the front desk. The arcade games are a little dated as is the 4D movie. Not all of the laser tag equipment worked properly but it's also one of the most popular activities there. We did not do the comedy dinner show nor did we eat there but considering it came out to $26 per person and we spent a total of 2.5 hours, we can't complain for it being a one time visit. For adults it may be a tad lame but our kids had a blast. It's definitely for families. It's not a date night place.
  • Architecturally compelling, cleverly done facade of a seemingly upside-down building draws your attention. Once inside (after duly paying the admission fees), you're met with a seemingly endless number of interactive displays and things to engage with. For the more intrepid among us, the tight-ropes are a memorable thing to do. Very much enjoyed our time at WonderWorks.
  • This place was pretty fun and had a lot of cool things to do. (Some will make you dizzy so beware) The staff was very nice and helpful and the minor activities were still interesting as well. This is more fun for kids and teens but it's does keep the adults entertained too. Also if you go you should have a little extra money for the arcade. Though, the arcade is not really that great and the prizes are things you'll throw way on your way back home. The food is inexpensive too. Other than that this place is really great and my family ended up being their for 5 hours so great day activity as well.
  • I've never been in a 4-D motion theater before and I have a broken leg. How can you not go in there with a broken bone when you're just sitting. My friends told me about it and thought it was not fair that I couldn't do something cool while I'm just sitting. It gets 2 stars because the rest was fun.
  • For the money, I think that Ripley's is a better experience. It was very busy, as its 4th of July weekend, and I'm not taking that into account for the review. My son is 7 and liked it. But, paying as much as we did for something that wasn't nearly as fun as expected. Wonder works does have interactive games for younger children, too, which is nice. There were also 2 exhibits closed when we went.

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.
