We went yesterday and were impressed. (on a Sunday). Hubby's comment was " I need to realigned my standards for what I can get for $23, that was cool." We took our 7yo, 8yo kids & 29yo brother. $25 combo ticket is worth it - it includes general admission, 1 round of laser tag & ropes course. Bought separately it... More

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 were only planning on spending an hour there... More

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.

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.
