From the upside-down exterior of this quirky building to the many fascinating and unusual exhibits housed within, WonderWorks is sure to live up to its name!
As legend has it, the museum began as a Top Secret research laboratory on a remote island in the Bermuda Triangle, where 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 lab, creating a swirling vortex that was strong enough to rip the lab from its foundation and to carry it thousands of miles away, landing it upside-down on the top of a brick warehouse in Orlando, Florida. Amazingly, all of the experiments remained intact and functional!
When you enter the building, everything will be upside-down, so in order to enjoy the fun, you must be inverted. Step inside the inversion tunnel and be turned right-side-up to begin your journey. Then you can enjoy more than 100 hands-on exhibits that will confront children and adults alike with a variety of hands-on exhibits that will help them better understand the strange universe surrounding us and have fun while doing so! Simulator rides focusing on everything from flight to earthquakes, a hands-on bed of nails, and even devices that allow you to create your own dream rollercoaster and test it out through simulation are just a few of the activities you’ll find waiting for you! Combine Wonderworks with awesome Orlando Florida vacation deals to ensure that your time in Orlando is unforgettable!
