Where are we going today?
An amusement park built specifically for kids to learn? Welcome to WonderWorks...that's EXACTLY why they were created!
WonderWorks is 40,000 square feet of "amusement park for the mind", with over 100 "edu-tainment" exhibits - clever huh!?
All of the attractions combine education and entertainment, so kids can develop their minds and spark their imaginations.
Kids - are you ready to hear something VERY cool? Well, word on the street is that WonderWorks was once a top-secret laboratory in the Bermuda Triangle. An experiment went wrong, and everything landed upsidedown in Syracuse!
Luckily for you, everything was miraciulously left intact, and now ready for you to explore and learn!
WonderWorks has six magical wonder zones just FILLED with family fun - are you ready to explore?
Kids can learn all about Natural Disasters as they become a human lightning rod while the Tesla Coil email 100,00 volts of electricity! They can also see how a category 1 hurricane would feel like...that's up to 71 mph!
Warp the mind with the Far Out Gallery, with several pieces of illusion artwork covering the walls! Some paintings even have hidden objects in them! Can you figure out these riddles?
Families can discover all things space, or challenge themselves in the Physical Challenge Zone...can you handle it!
WonderWorks is an incredible place for the family, and one where kids can learn the same amount of fun they are having.
Enjoy - you will want to go back!

My kids loved it. It was a fun time and if you purchase the Orlando Go Pass and do other things in the area it makes it very affordable. We were there several weeks ago and my boys (11 & 13, one of which is on the spectrum) are still talking about the Magic Show with Fred Moore. They thought it was the funniest thing ever! The dinner provided wasn't great, but hey it was good, family fun for a very reasonable price. I would definitely do it again with them.

This place is not like it used to be. They have added a couple of exhibits over the years but have failed to properly maintain the older ones. It just felt run down. We did really enjoy the ropes course and the laser tag. We especially enjoyed the 4D movie. The only thing missing from the movie was a splash of water. All in all we did enjoy ourselves.

Disappointing on so many levels. First, the Google Earth machine was not working...which I could use my phone to look at so it is not something exciting to begin with. Second, the Mind Ball, the bed of nails and the Simon says all didn't work. Then you get around the corner to play three video games; Speed of Light, air hockey and Basketball. I could play these at Dave and Busters for cheaper. Then even more games. Sigh- don' waste your money!

It was amazing except for a few things including The virtual air hockey and the Copy the pattern were broken. Other than that it was very awesome The 4D experience was not worth it though. It was only like 5 minutes. The ropes course was very small. Laser tag was fun, but only 7 min. I would recommend it to families who enjoy illusions and hands on.

Wonderworks has really gone downhill over the years. I visited about twelve years ago and things were in decent condition and worked properly. But my visit today was disappointing. There were multiple broken displays/games and things were worn and not kept up well. For the price of admission, I expect things to function.
