"Crowded"
August, 2018 NEW
This was a fun place especially for the younger kids! Some of the areas were very crowded so it was hard to see everything. Seemed like it was more like a big arcade then scientific experience like we thought it would be. Although the rope course and laser tag was fun! A little suggestion though need to have representatives up on the rope course to direct traffic areas. The holding points can only accommodate so many ppl & apparently there are ppl don't see that. LOL

Tip: Try to go as soon as they open, less ppl and could probably see more.

"All Day Family Entertainment"
August, 2018 NEW
We took three of our children (all under 6 at the time) to WonderWorks and we had a blast. There is something for everyone to do - from our youngest who just turned 2 to the grownups. It was fun to play “unlimited” games and interactive activities (included in the cost of the pass) as well as see science in action through all the exhibits. Had we known more about WonderWorks, we would have planned for a day trip (They provide passes in and out so that you can re-enter without charge). The location is great because of all the restaurants and retail so all you would have to do is park for the day, eat and play.

Tip: Print your ticket before you go. They can print it for you but it takes up unnecessary time. Probably better to skip the stroller here too. Lastly, there is an arcade area (pay to play) mixed in with fun virtual games.

Thanks to pre-purchasing my tickets online, I avoiding having to stand in a long line in a downpour with my anxious grandkids! It was amazing. We were dropped off at the door to avoid the rain...walked right up to the counter, presented our online verification code and in we went! If I can do it, you can do it. No hassles...just fun!

"so packed"

We went to wonder works mid afternoon. It was so packed we literally just ran through to get out of the madness. We were not able to do 75% of the activities because the lines were so long.

"Awesome time!"
July, 2018 NEW
The outside of the building is just as cool as the inside. I liked that everything was very hands on. It made it interesting for my husband and I as well as my daughter that's 6. Stopped at the little food outlet they had and really liked their pizza. Best part was laser tag!

"Awesome place"
July, 2018
I would give wonderworks of Myrtle Beach a 5 star however I paid for the soar and explore package and they claim I didn't so was kind of disappointed. However you can enter rmore than once a day so if you don't get to see everything the first time around you can come back the same day before closing time.

I was a bit skeptical about going here but was so glad we went when it was over. We played games, interacted with everything. Laser tag, virtual baseball, zero gravity, bed of nails, bubble land, ropes course, tons to see and do and learn. It wasn’t what I expected it was more. Arcade was legit and we played in there for an hour for just 20$ worth of tokens. Very hands on, tons to do and before we knew it, we had been in this place for almost 4 hours! Kids were exhausted and slept well, so if your looking for something to do OTHER than just sit on the beach, it’s well worth the $18.99 ticket price for the kids. 😉 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

We have always rode by and never stopped for a visit until this past weekend. The kids loved it!! We also enjoyed it. It's a fun museum vibe and the kids can have fun while learning about a lot of science activities. It's a great time if you ever have wanted to go!

This place is definitely worth the price of admission. We all had a blast and there are so many hands on things to do no one will be bored. We went early in the day so it was not to crowded, but it is a popular attraction so plan accordingly. We got the all access passes for the kids which included additional aser tag, the outdoor rope course and zip line. They loved it. Bonus is the outdoor bar were mom and dad can grab a drink while the kids zip line!! A most see if in the area.

Great activity when you don't want to go to beach and too hot to do anything outdoors. We took others advice and arrived at 10am. After 3 hours we finished with exhibits and only had laser tag left. Was able to leave for lunch and return to finish. There were no lines. 11 and 14 yr old enjoyed the activities as did mom and dad.it was a very expensive so suggest finding discount tickets.
