    I was pleasantly surprised by this place! The teen and tween gave it two thumbs up. We went on a Friday when it opened and had no problem seeing the attractions. We didn't do any of the extra attracti...  more »

    We were told we have to visit this place and we all thought it was just ok. After waiting in line for over an hour for the space walk ropes we were aggravated. There is a lot of neat things to do but ...  more »

    Its a great concept, though maintaining the attractions needs some work. One of the controllable robotic arms was not working as intended. The strobe light for "stopping" the water was out of sync. The right side of speed of light game didn't work well. The pitching area was out of calibration and didn't work well. The timers on the shoot the hoop games didn't work well. Some items where closed. The joystick on the shuttle landing didn't work well. There are lots of activities that do work.

    Awesome place for kids! Our group was 3 generations and everyone enjoyed the few hours we don't there. Rock wall was fun for adults and kids. We would definitely visit another Wonderworks if we find one on vacation. Bonus - you can leave and come back the same day with your paid admission.

    So much fun!!!! From our 5 year old, to the 70 year old grandmother, we all enjoyed our visit. I took my 9 year old on the ropes course, and we had fun, but I would caution those thinking of taking younger kids. I think it would be difficult to maneuver the safety rope around the course if you were smaller, and I saw several littles go up, then come right back down, realizing they were scared... but, we had a blast. Only negative: the soft pretzels in the snack bar were gross.

    My grandson was three when we went and he remembered having fun and wants to go back to the "upside down house" on our vacation this year!! He is now seven and will enjoy it a lot more!! As adults, we had a great time as well! I'm looking forward to going back this year!!

    We went early so it wasn't crowded. Ages 12 16 17 and adults and we all enjoyed it. Lots of fun and interesting activities for all of us. And we can go back later same day with our tickets.
