"Fun but be prepared to wait!"
April, 2018
My son and I had a great time. Lots of cool attractions but the lines for everything were crazy!!! We waited for an hour each to do the 360 Bike and 6D movie. It was 1.5 hours to do the zip line. So much fun but not sure if it was worth the wait.

Tip: Get there early to avoid the lines. Be prepared to stay all day

"not worth the money"
December, 2017
For over $100, It was not worth it. It is like a science center that was over crowded. The rope course was fun but it took like 20 min. The one thing that they advertised was "upside down world" besides the outside, that is all that is upside down. The big attractions had huge wait times. Wish we would have went to the aquarium instead. The wax museum was a blast too. Much more value for the money.

There is a map of the place with coupons for food and toys. The catch is it costs $4.00! The discount for food may cover the cost of the map but get free coupon in the vender magazine's. IN REALITY, map should be included with the price of admission.

"It was okay"
August, 2016
We have a kids museum in Raleigh, NC that we just LOVE so I was thinking this was going to be similar. There was A LOT of arcade stuff, like a whole floor worth, where you had to spend more money. This is NOT a kids museum. We did enjoy the ropes coarse + lazer tag and a few exhibits, but having to pay this price + additional money is ridiculous. They should def reconsider the meaning of a kid museum.

Tip: take extra money because you'll get sucked into the arcade.

Me and my family had so much fun at wonder works. There is so much to do there we were there for hours and the best part is once you are in everything is included in the admission price. There were rides laser tag an obstacle course an arcade and many exhibits which were both fun and educational. When you first walk in the tunnel is so much fun! The lines were too long at some of the rides and people kept cutting in front and holding spaces regardless of the signs which tell them not to one ride I had to wait 45 minutes. I did not ride many of the rides due to this issue afterwards. However this was worth our money and I would revisit again with my family

Wow, this place was great! It cost $90 for 3 of us to get in the door, but it was completely worth it! They have three floors of nothing but fun. The first floor is the anti-gravity exhibit; they have the 360* bike (I rode it and loved it), the astronaut training machine (They strap you in in every way they can then you get spun around, upside down, sideways, backwards, and everywhere else. This ride is very rough, so I do not recommend if you are already sore or hurt because you will be the next day, 100%.), and other things like the speed of light game, a football cage, and a place where you can pull yourself up with a rope. The next floor has the 6D theater, the bed of nails, the rollercoaster box, and the big bubbles. There’s too much on this floor to mention everything. The next floor is the best one of all. This floor houses an arcade (that is pay to play) and the indoor ropes course. The ropes course is stupid cool! It's included in the price, so you just get in line and go up. People 18 and up have to sign a waiver. They put the harness on you and you walk up a set of stairs with no railing, but you’re connected to the bar above you, so you’re not going anywhere. There are several different paths you can take at each intersection. Anyone can do this, even those with a fear of heights, as long as you’re in acceptable physical condition. Warning: there is one path on the second level of the ropes course that is not fun, nor easy. I'm not scared of heights, but even I had to stop and take a breath on this one, simply because the steps were so erratic and it was rope, so it was constantly moving. I would avoid that one. The great news is that you don't have to do every single path. They let you do up and walk freely. You can walk up, go across one bridge, and be done if you want. They also have two or three staff members up there walking around just in case anyone needs help. My mother, little cousin, and I all had a blast up there. I highly recommend this place for absolutely everyone, because they have something for everyone.

Kids have been asking for a few years to go so this year we did. Kids had a blast as well as us. They have plenty of fun stuff for all ages. I would recommend taking your family here. They have a elevator for those who can’t use steps so that is a plus for those who need.
