WonderWorks Orlando Review

Living in Orlando, there is always stuff to do!  International Drive offers so many options of attractions which makes it hard to decide which to choose and why.  Let me tell you why I have been bringing family and friends to WonderWorks Orlando for years.

WonderWorks Orlando

Having some friends visiting Orlando a few weeks ago, we told them we had to go to WonderWorks to enjoy all the fun things to see and do in this upside down I-Drive attraction.  With over 100 interactive exhibits, WonderWorks has experiences including natural disasters, light and sound, physical challenges, imagination lab, illusions, lazer-tag and a ropes course.  So much to do that it’s easy to spend hours there.  It is a perfect way to work up an appetite for the Outta Control Dinner Show with Tony Brent! (review to my favorite Orlando dinner show tomorrow!)


So here’s some of the fun we had with our friends!  And know that they all want to return with their friends and family!

WonderWorks Orlando Review

WonderWorks bubbles


My little friend KJ had a lot of fun playing in the Bubble Lab!  With this “wall” of soap she was able to make a GIANT bubble, and there are hoops to put you inside a bubble too!  Fun for even the big kids!

Bubble Lab

If you are anywhere between the ages of 1 and 101, you will love this exhibit!  Create bubbles the size of basketballs, blow bubbles through a bubble sheet, or make a bubble big enough for you to fit inside!  Look at all the pretty colors in the bubbles as they float around.  They are actually reflections and refractions of the light around the bubble.  The colors show how thick, or thin, the bubble wall is.

WonderWorks Earthquake


This was before Scott, Jackie and KJ were all shook up by the earthquake exhibit.

Earthquake Cafe

In 1989, an earthquake struck the San Francisco Bay Area of California, collapsing a freeway and interrupting a World Series game between the Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants.  Relive the Quake of ’89 and feel the power behind a magnitude of 5.3 on the Richter scale.


WonderWorks Mind Ball

This was so fun!  I did it with Donnie too!  Mind Ball is a game of who can relax the most.  I lost.  So did Jackie!  We have a hard time resting our minds!


This challenging bio-feedback game for two will test your mind capacities based on EEG Technology.

EEG Technology is used as a training tool for cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point.  Officers are not only trained to be alert but also to control their thought process in order to remain calm in high-pressure situations.

Mind Ball is a game that goes against the conventional competitive concept.  Instead of high activity and adrenaline, Mind Ball relies on calmness and relaxation to measure success.

Each player will wear a headband with electrodes that will record and evaluate brain activity.  In a battle of the minds, the player whose mind is most calm and relaxed wins!

WonderWorks Rope Course

And with the WonderWorks Ropes Course, you have this glow in the dark obstacle course taking you high above all the games in the game room.

Orlando Ropes Challenge Course at WonderWorks

WonderWorks takes family fun to new heights with an Indoor Ropes Challenge Course.  The first of its kind in Orlando, the ropes course lets participants scale to a maximum height of 36 feet.  The three-story adventure features a glow-in-the-dark course along with more than 20 different obstacles including a tire traverse, suspension bridges, swinging beams and more that must be conquered along the way.  The course is designed with the experience level of each participant in mind.  More advanced athletes will discover a challenge while “just for fun” climbers will experience a sense of accomplishment as they navigate the course.  This exciting experience is included in the price of General Admission.


Check out Donnie and his electrifying touch!


Tesla Coil

Become a human lightning rod as you place your hand through the mesh, steel armor glove and watch while the Tesla Coil emits 100,000 volts of electricity to your fingers!

Nikola Tesla invented the Tesla Coil around 1891 to investigate the electrical realm of high-voltage, low-current, and high-frequency.  Some Tesla Coils create electric fields powerful enough to generate electricity to wirelessly power up a fluorescent light up to 50 feet away.


The game room is full of new and “old” video games AND a couple of air hockey machines!  My favorite! <3

WonderWorks Orlando

We didn’t get to take part this time, but there is an amazing lazer-tag room as well!

WonderWorks Orlando Lazer-Tag

Upgrade your ticket to play lazer-tag and take part in the fun as you compete against your opponents inside a huge blacklight lit maze.  Lazer-Tag combines innovative technology and fast-paced excitement to provide players with a one-of-a-kind experience featuring more than 10,000 square feet of action and arcade fun in the WonderWorks basement.  The object is to outplay, outlast and outshoot the other players.

  1. This looks like a really neat place. The upside building definitely caught my attention! Putting it on our list for the next time we head to Orlando!

  2. We have driven past that building so many times and never been in! We’re heading out to Orlando in November for a non-Disney vacation, would you recommend this place for toddlers? They’ll be just about to turn 2.

  3. I took 16 young people of all different ages and I have to say something. First – Loved the website, enjoyed your review. I just had to stop and leave a comment because I think Wonderworks Orlando is amazing and I run into so many poor reviews about it.

    I went to Wonderworks when I first moved to Florida and yes it was mostly a fun museum, but today… No way, it had these kids jumping, laughing, climbing a rope course in the air. They could not stop talking about the fun they had.

    I had to write my own review on it because so many were poor, but I am glad I found yours and that you enjoyed it as well.
