Quick version, bring the kids and have fun. This is geared toward the kids so keep that in mind. As well as the little candy bar you walk through when you leave. Plan on coming well before closing time, you might be here a while. We came in here after being referred by a friend and it was Halloween so they were closing a little early, which only gave us a couple of hours to get through here, which is not enough time. We were nearly alone and had the place to ourselves, which was great. The boys tried things over and over without a line. The ropes course was wonderful. Wonderworks staff was very friendly with us and attentive to our kids. They have a lot of fun and educational pieces throughout their building they the kids enjoyed, and we did too. When we got to the end the staff agreed to stay a little later to allow the kids to enjoy the ropes course and when we left the manager gave us rain checks to come back tomorrow for free since we didn't get to stay as long as we liked. We will come back here for sure on our next visit.

This was too much for my 3 and 4 year olds but the 7 year old enjoyed it. Some of the exhibits weren't working which was a bummer. It could also have been cleaner. Some of us got stuck in one exhibit and had to wait for management to get us out. Too expensive for what you got.

Some things were very fun. My signifigant other is on the heavy side though and if we had been told that half the attractions had weight restrictions we would have skipped it all together. I'm not saying that it was a total waste but I wouldn't mind having half my money back

Would not normally do this kind of thing as I like to be on the beach all the time, but it was a rainy day so decided to go. So glad we did it was so much fun! So many interactive things, like the bed of nails, and the spinning bikes, and funny mirrors. Great place even without kids. Highly recommended.
