"Very Stimulating, but long waits for major attractions"
August, 2018
The different attractions and stations were very stimulating, my children really did find everything pretty interesting. The only thing that was kind of annoying was that all the major attractions, such as the rope course, the 4D theater, and the two rides, and the laser tag all had an hour wait. The 4D movie was only 5 minutes in length and was cool, but still not worth the long line. The laser tag also only allowed 5 minutes (maybe less) of play per however many people, so again, not worth the long wait! The ropes course I would say was probably the only attraction that was actually worth the line. My family each completed it and were enjoying it for at least 20 minutes or so. We had planned for maybe 2 hours of fun, but we were actually there for 4 1/2 hours and 3 of those hours were spent waiting in line.

Tip: Plan for a day trip, not a few hours. You will have to wait in line in everything that is worth doing.

"Wonderworks"
August, 2018
We went to Wonderworks during the week and it was overcrowded. We didn't do half the stuff inside because lines were so long. It was rather smaller than I figured. The gravity bikes peddle on one side was messed up and they weren't telling people. Overall we had fun on the zip line and rope course outside.

"Crowded"
August, 2018
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
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!

Spent4.5 hours here. My 3 teens and twentysomething niece had a great time here. So much to do and see in this place. Rain this year really put a damper on some of our activities but it could not stop this place from keeping a smile on our face. I had a great time watching my kids and niece have a blast.

We had an amazing time! This was not our first time, but there were new attractions to keep us entertained. Something for the whole family! Staff was very helpful and friendly. Restrooms located on all levels were clean and each had changing tables. Traveling with a 12 year old, 15 month old and 8 week old. The building was stroller friendly (so thankful for elevators!) All rides were clean and functional! Will definitely be back!

"Fun and Interesting for all ages!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 10, 2018 NEW
We were not sure what to expect but we ended up spending 3 hours exploring the 4 floors on interactive activities and rides. Could have spent more time. We spent $29.99 for one adult and $18.99 for a senior and three kids (ages 5, 8, and 10). Seemed like a lot at the time of entry but we definitely got our money’s worth! We were lucky that we were there in off season and did it have to wait more than a few minutes for anything. It could be very frenetic in high season!
