WonderWorks Orlando is extremely hard to miss. It's Located in the middle of International Drive, next to Pointe Orlando. It’s upside down. I don’t mean it’s a little weird. I mean the entire WonderWorks building is inverted!
It looks like a twister took the building and flipped it over. Right down to the grass being on the top of the building. It’s certainly something you check out when you visit Orlando, Florida.
WonderWorks Orlando is a great indoor activity for rainy or hot days.
If you read the website it has a fun explanation for how the building got turned upside down. Basically it says a top secret research lab in the Bermuda Triangle had a crazy scientist -Professor Wonder- who was trying to build a manmade tornado....
During one of his experiments something went crazy!....the sheer power and force ripped the building from it’s foundation and hurled it thousands of miles away! It landed right here in Orlando, Florida.
When it landed it was upside down. But it still had all the Professors' experiments intact. Now you can go to WonderWorks and see what that zainy Mr. Wonder was up to!
So it's a crazy story but it has a fun twist. But so does this place!
That’s not the best part of this unusual attraction in Orlando, Florida. There's tons of other fun things to do. Step inside to see what else this kooky place has to offer. With over 100 interactive exhibits you’ll be entertained by the weird and the wonderful.
If you decide to check out WonderWorks Orlando you can plan on spending two or three hours there. This isn’t one if those all day Orlando, Florida attractions.
You could get done in as little as 20 minutes (if it’s busy you may find yourself waiting in line for the exhibits. If you hit it up at a good time you should be able to fly right through) but if you go with young children you could spend hours playing the interactive games and checking out the exhibits.
If you don’t want to contend with the crowds consider avoiding the high times including: Mid-March through Late April (“Spring Break”), Memorial Day weekend, Summer break (June-August), and Christmas break.
This is not really an attraction that’s geared towards adults (unless you’re young at heart.) If you’re looking for highly sophisticated exhibits and things that’ll blow your socks off you may be disappointed. But, if you’re looking for a family friendly, educational experience, than WonderWorks Orlando would be a great choice!
This isn’t Disney Quest or some big, fancy attraction. It’s aimed at being a more educational experience. Even the interactive games are set up to make you think.
Take a ride on a roller coaster (a simulated one that is), lay down on a bed of nails (without getting hurt), and see what the inside of a space shuttle looks like. Stand in a tunnel and feel the winds of a 70 mph hurricane or land a plane in a flight simulator.
You can get package deals that will save you a little $$. You can add on a game of laser tag inside a black light maze, hang out on the ropes course that’ll take you through 20 different obstacles and activities and/or add on some dinner.
The Outta Control Comedy and Magic show is a fun time. If you looking for some good clean, kid friendly fun plus decent pizza and popcorn, then you should check it out.
You and the kids are sure to enjoy the family friendly Outta Control Dinner Show. If you do get the combo package for the dinner show make sure you decide on something to do in between.
Or, plan on visiting the attraction a couple of hours before dinner so you don’t go through and then have to come back. Unless you wanted to go through the exhibits again.
Once you pay the fee to get into WonderWorks Orlando you can come and go as you please. So if you wanted to experience it again the same day you can! You could also go back within three days to enjoy the ropes course.
The rope climb is tons of fun. Sometimes it can be a little slow getting through the line if they don’t have enough people helping. If you want to do this course just make sure you wear a good pair of shoes.
There’s a lot of younger people (they’re probably only getting paid minimum wage after all) working at Wonderworks Orlando. This may cause you to run into less then acceptable customer service. But this isn’t always the case. Just keep that in mind if you run into a little snag.

I’ve also seen deals from Groupon.com. Just look around a little because you’ll be surprised at how much money you can save!
