    To begin your journey to the works of wonder, you have to survive the upside down building of Wonderworks. Thrilling walk as you pass the lobby with the screeching sound as if its gonna fall.
    As you step the inversion tunnel and be turned upside down, you will find your way to the exhibits.
    Lots of fun things to do and to discover. Very informative and fun.

    Entrance fee:
    Child (4-12) & Senior Citizen: $14.95
    Adult :$19.95

    Note:
    They also have dinner packages and/or laser games. Please check website for further details.

    this interesting upside down building houses wonder works. wonder works has a collection of interactive computer simulators. the visitor can land the space shuttle, fly a fighter jet, experience an earthquake and play lazer tag. wonder works also has a comedy club dinner theater. reservations for the comedy club are recommended. a nice place to take children in the I-drive area.

    Ever thought how intensed a hurricane could be? This is the chance for you to feel it for real :-) Here in woderworks, they have a Hurricane tube simulator wherein you you will feel frist hand the power and strength of winds and tremors.
    So, hold on to the handrails and wear you safety googles!

    So, you are a giagantic dork, but you also like roller coasters - what to do?
    Wonder World in Orlando is probably your best bet. It's housed inside an "upside down" building that "crashed" as a result of a lab experiment gone ary. If you think I am using sarcastic "words in quotes" now, just wait until you get there and "experience" it for yourself. It's "awesome."
    In seriousness, Wonder Word does have some fun things for kids, and it's not as annoying as most everything else in Orlando.

    not any more fake than anything else in Orlando

    Earthquake @ Wonderworks

    just when you thought you had enough of the hurricane, be prepared for the earthquake simulator located just right next to it.
    Feel the 7.8 intensity as the chair moves back and forth. It would probably last for about a minute or two but dont you dare stand up coz an after shock is just about to start!

    FYI: The largest world recorded earthquake in the world was a Magnitude of 9.5 (MW) in Chile on May 22, 1960.

    Mansour and Baba We did it!

    There are more than 100 interactive exhibits inside the Wonderworks building. You can feel what it is like to be in the middle of an earthquake or hurricane or even design and ride your own rollercoaster which is great fun although a little hair raising at times.

    You can programme your own Rollercoaster ride with twists, turns, loops and hair-raising drops before strapping yourself inside the simulator and taking a ride.

    The earthquake simulator shows videos of earthquakes while you feel the whole room shake as if in a real `quake.

    The hurricane simulator is similar to the earthquake simulator except that wind is blown around, you do get goggles supplied for this.

    Opening Times
    9am to Midnight

    WonderWorks

    WonderWorks is an attraction on International Drive. This upside down building will definitely get your attention. Looks very real -- everything's upside down. Looks like the building was pulled off from the ground by a giant monster. Good attraction for the entire family, especially the kids. Use coupons for this attraction -- you can easily find them in tourist maps and booklets.

    This place is geared to kids and those who are kids at heart. They have a lot of regular games and in addition to that a lot of exhibits are geared towards science that both adults and kids can learn. Most importantly of all they make it fun.

    Outta Control Comedy Show-I was not impressed with this show at all. Most of the magic tricks I have seen done already and I found the jokes a little dry. For food they just served pizza, popcorn, and soda. Kids like it but for a group of adults I think its best to skip.
