I did the ropes course at WonderWorks. I thought it was great. The course was challenging but not overly hard. I liked that I could make my own path. The staff throughout the course was helpful when someone got "stuck". They were encouraging without being pushy. Make sure anyone in your group doesn't have vertigo before they go on this.... More

Took my son, niece and nephew and grand daughter. Really liked this location. Had alot more space than the one in orlando. It had the traditional wonder works attractuons but there were also a few arcade games that dave and busters has which was a bonus, not to mention virtual rides.

We opted to just do the general admission due to limited time. We spent about an hour and 15 minutes in the "amusement park" with our 10 year old. We did not pay the additional admission for the rope course, laser tag, or 4D theater. What we did experience was average with many of the games and attractions out of... More

Our family has been to WW three times in the past year. We hope to return in a month or so. It doesn't disappoint. Fun, interactive displays. Virtual plane landings, crazy gyroscope ride, bed of nails, optical illusions, 4D movies, . . . There is so much to entertain and educate! And for a few more dollars, there is the... More

The facility is a great place to spend time with kids of all ages. However, on a recent visit I noticed that several exhibits were out of order, indicating that years of visitors have shown their wear. As always, top notch customer service and a fairly clean environment.

We purchased a Groupon for Wonderworks because the retail price there is quite high. My 9 and 11 year old boys LOVED it and it was nice that we could come and go as we pleased. We had the VIP passes which included one game of laser tag and one rope climb. The rope climb alone is fun (if your... More
