WonderWorks is an amusement park for the mind with over 100 interactive exhibits for visitors of all ages to experience. The most eye-catching feature of WonderWorks is the attraction’s dramatic exterior – a three-story tall, classically designed building that appears to have landed upside down, atop a 1930s era brick warehouse.
Experience the trembling of a 5.3 earthquake, be blown away by 71mph hurricane force winds, maneuver the controls of a NASA spacecraft to land the shuttle, step inside an astronaut space suit, feel the sensation of 3,500 nails elevate you, fly a fighter jet, make a 3-D impression of your entire body on the WonderWall, design and ride your own roller coaster, play virtual sports plus much more! New attractions - the XD Theater 4D extreme motion ride and 3 Story indoor ropes challenge course-located in the basement/the 3rd level.

WonderWorks in Orlando, Florida
is an interactive and informative playground. This is a place where adults and children will feel free and safe to play at their own pace. There is an even split between virtual games that require some guidance and others that are self-explanatory fun. The virtual games such as the flight simulators that mock the flights of the Discovery Space Shuttle and an F18 fighter jet do require some initial instructions from an adult but create a tremendous sense of independence once working. There are also many virtual games throughout the laboratory that allow a person to control their video game avatar by the movement of their own body.
However, not all of the thrills at Orlando's WonderWorks
are grand technological innovations. One area of the Illusion Room allows the visitor to create a bubble large enough to stand in! Likewise, the giant WonderWorks piano in the Sound Room is pure fun for everyone. Take note, however, that the sound booth in the Sound Room simulates an old time radio story that may be frightening to young children.
As the tour winds down be sure to allot some time to the many virtual rides as the lines can be long for the Create-Your-Own-Coaster virtual simulator and the flight simulators. Likewise, the top floor is an actual arcade complete with black lights and a prize counter, so bring some spare change.
Tips: Though the establishment is entirely safe, remind children to not move on to the next room without an adult as the exhibits are numerous and varied, making it difficult to relocate eachother. A two hour time slot should be the minimum to tour and play sufficiently. The top floor also contains a laser tag course that costs extra money.
