I was pleasantly surprised that my family enjoyed this attraction as much as they did.

We visited Wonder Works and used a Groupon discount for six people! Great experience! 10 bucks per person and you get a ticket to come and go as you wish all day! It was the first thing we did when we went to the Destiny Mall and it easily kept all of us occupied for over 4 hours. The staff... More

We just visited this for the first time while traveling through New York on a rainy day. I had heard about this and seen the WW in Orlando from the outside, but never went in to see what it actually was. It's kind of like a Ripley's Believe It Or Not, but it's all science type activities to do instead... More

My husband and I enjoyed being kids at the WonderWorks at the Destiny USA mall. Lots of fun for kids and adults. I got blown away in a wind tunnel and played B-ball and lost many times to my husband (but I came close). I tried to be an astronaut and land a space shuttle but crashed too many times.... More

We visited WonderWorks, while visiting the Mall. We visited on a Tuesday morning, there was no-one in there, so we didn't have to queue for any of the attractions, we managed to go all the attractions. My children aged 7 and 4 loved it. I actually found it really interesting too!!! I would highly recommend WonderWorks especially if you have... More

The Good; Mind numbing science stuff to do. The Bad; The Hurricane sack could be a little more "hurricanee". How 'bout intead of just a giant fan blowing in your face, you shake the shack a little...CMON!. The Ugly; Need more virtual sports games.

This place exceeded all my expectations. It wasn't rated as highly as I would have liked on TripAdvisor, but I had an amazing time (as a 40-something year old adult). There was enough to do to keep us busy from 10am to 3pm... and we definitely could have stayed longer. I wouldn't necessarily call this edutainment, but it was definitely... More

This attraction is great for people of all ages. So many scientific, fun things to do. Seemed like a mini amusement park.
