Description

from WonderWorks
WonderWorks Panama City Beach began as a Top Secret research laboratory on a remote island in the Bermuda Triangle. As legend has it, the world’s greatest scientists – led by Professor Wonder – were given the task of creating a man-made tornado and harnessing the POWER of it. During this experiment, something went awry and the power of the tornado was unleashed throughout the laboratory. This created a swirling vortex that was strong enough to rip the laboratory from its foundation. It was carried thousands of miles away and landed upside-down on the top of a surf shack in Panama City Beach, Florida. Remarkably, all of the experiments remained intact and functional.

When you enter the building, everything will be upside-down, so in order to participate in the fun, you must be inverted. Step inside the inversion tunnel and be turned right side up to begin your journey. Once you are properly aligned for your adventure, family fun awaits with more than 100 hands on exhibits. Make WonderWorks a stop on your Things to Do list when visiting Panama City Beach.

"Rainy Day Fun!"
January, 2015
Have you ever had your beach plans canceled due to unexpected nasty weather? Are you looking for wholesome entertainment that is sure to please people of all ages?? Do you seek out activities that are family friendly? If you answered yes to all these questions, start planning your trip to Wonderworks now!
Without a doubt, Wonderworks is an indoor interactive amusement park that is sure to delight every toddler, kid, teen, and adult! There is an activity to meet everyone’s thrilling needs. Last month, I took my 3 year old niece, 11, 13, and 16 year old son to this amazing establishment. We all spent endless hours riding virtual rides, blowing gigantic bubbles, playing interactive video games, and balancing on the tight rope obstacle course. The day was filled with laughter, smiles, and family bonding as we worked our way thru the multi-leveled virtual park. We were not even out of the parking lot and all of the kids were asking when we could make a return trip to this fantastic establishment. We could not have asked for a better way to spend our day! Thank you Wonderworks for the indoor excitement you provided us on a rainy day! It was worth every penny!
Tip: Be prepared to stay all day. Wear your tennis shoes. Bring money for the gift shop!

We spent four hours here doing all the stuff, was a great day and the boys both 4 and 6 were so brave doing the rope course, my 4 year old has autism and has never done something like this before and he grabbed my hand to go back up to the top again, he was fearless. Interesting stuff to see and do, we had a great afternoon there. Had to buy snacks since we were there so long, didn't think we would be there 4 hours!

We've been there before, lots of great activities for the kids to include some rides. I highly suggest finding a deal for ticket prices, as paying 20+ per person can be an expensive venture for larger families. Overall I had a great time with my three children. My only complaint is that my son met the height limit for one of the rides and wanted to get on but was denied access because he was unable to reach the safety button. When I asked my son about why he was not allowed to go, he told me that the lady told him even though he was able to reach the safety button, he was not able to reach the button easily enough to stop the ride, if he wanted to (what's the darn standard?). This same lady also told me that he was too short at first without checking, and I told her I just checked and he was half an inch over the requirement. I don't know what her problem was but it dampened the experience. This was on 21 August at 1pm EST.

We brought our family here for a day of fun, and both our children had a fantastic time. I would recommend this to anyone who has kiddos that like adventurous science activities.

It was very rainy during our vacation, so we were interested in some indoor activities. We tried going after lunch one weekday but we couldn't even find a parking space and other cars were circling to lot. We left and decided to try another day. When we came back again, we got there right when they opened for the day. I recommend you do the same as you can stay as long as you want and they allow you to leave and come back at no extra charge. Our 5 year old was not really interested in many things on the first floor, but had a blast on the second. He loved the bubble room the most and still speaks of it. There are tons of little experiences throughout. You can end your visit with a unique experience on the ropes course. It has areas for differing ages and levels.

My husband and I had an Ohio visitor at our condo. We range in ages from 55 to 75. We were probably the oldest folks there, but we never grew up, so fit right in! I recommend this place if you get "burned-out" or rained out of the beach.
