Overview

Welcome to Wonder World Park, a one-of-a-kind Theme Park, known as the 1st show cave in Texas. Visitors have enjoyed touring the Balcones Fault Line Cave for over 105 years, and now, the park has many other attractions for family fun and entertainment. Enjoy a guided tour and discover the nation's only true example of an earthquake formed cave. Go deep underground and see up close the devastation of a major quake. Exit by the "Stratavator" and ride high into the sky to the Tejas Observation Tower. Be amazed by the Topsy-Turvy World of the Anti-Gravity House where everything is backwards, even water flows up hill! Board the train and splash through the waterfalls of Mystery Mountain on your way to the Texas Wildlife Petting Park. Educational and fun for ALL ages, Wonder World Park Cave and Attractions is just minutes from I-35 in San Marcos between Austin and San Antonio. Gift shops, free picnic grounds, free parking and much more await your visit.

We have been coming here for 30 years. The climb down and back up was much easier back then (younger, ha ha). It still is good for the family. They have an observation tower, the caves, a gravity house and a train that goes thru...More

A couple of years back we took our grandchildren to the Wonder World Park. There is a small petting zoo (mostly native animals to Texas), a cave tour, and a gift shop. We rode the little train thru the zoo then went on the cave...More

I used to take my scout troops but can't afford it now. There was a petting zoo and cave excursion but I don't know what they added to increase the price so much.

We had a good experience. Our tour guide was witty and informative. I wish there were a way to just do the cave part if the tour for a cheaper price. The petting zoo/train ride was super cheesy and short, it didn't go anywhere.

This attraction is geared towards families with young children; but, the cave tour is good for all ages. It's kind of pricey; but, you get 4 attractions. There is a tram ride through an animal exhibit, the cave tour, a 150 foot tower and the...More

This was a great place! I know many say the Natural Bridge Caverns is better and I have been there and agree, but I thought Wonder Park would be more appropriate to go with a 6-yea-old. This place gave a good introduction to a cave...More
