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!

lots to explore here for the kids, there is also a small video arcade. it is a little over priced for what there is to do. i have been more than once with my kids for birthday parties and such. going once was good enough for me. to kill a couple hours on vacation it may be worth it.

"Best suited for 4th thru 6th graders, but"

The preschooler and toddler enjoyed it, too. The place is a science experiment on steroids. It's perfect common core science standards for elementary age kids. It's daredevil fun, too. That's science at its best! Pricey, yes. But the cost is comparable with most for-profit places.

"Fun afternoon visit"

We visited WonderWorks while on vacation to PCB. We had a Groupon and it was accepted without any issues. (The regular ticket price is a bit high but it was definitely worth it with the Groupon discount). During our visit, it wasn't crowded so we were able to experience most of the attractions/displays with little to no wait. We had a group of 4 adults and 3 children (ages 3, 9 & 10). We all enjoyed it. Our ticket included general admission, space fury, the ropes course and laser tag.

This was our third visit to Wonder Works. We hadn't been in two years. They still maintain everything and keep it clean. When we got there a field trip group of 100 kids arrived at the same time. We went and did the ropes course at the end first then went and did lazer tag and then went through the exhibit starting at the beginning. By that time the field trip crowds had died down. We had a great time and all the employees we encountered were very nice. My parents took the kids back later that evening as our tickets were good all day.
