“Awesome Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

My husband and I decided to take our 2 boys here (7 and 12), after debating on if the price was worth it. I read some if the reviews and they were mixed, but we decided to take a gamble. I'm glad we did! My boys are still talking about it, 2 days later. We bought the xtreme combo (Wonder Works, Laser Tag, the Ripley's Believe it or Not museum and the 7D movie.) The total was $150 and definitely worth it. I will say that we were in Destin, FL before coming to Panama City Beach, and Panama was horrible compared to Destin. If it wasn't for Wonder Works and Ripley's, it would have been a horrible vacation.

“It was not worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

There are some neat things to do and learn in WonderWorks. We went on the way back from Gulf World which may have contributed to our disappointment since we had such a great time. The kids enjoyed themselves but it is overpriced. The staff is not the best and I can hardly blame them but I can blame the managers who are not managing them or who hired them.

“Tech attraction.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Great for kids. Adults may be bored. New, clean, but not extensive. If you like Ripley's Believe It Or Not, you can get a deal and bundle the two.

“Great entertainment when the beaches are closed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

We visited here when the beaches were closed for 2 days. I don't usually like to pay for things like this when the beach is free, but you can't do anything when double red flags! I felt like this was VERY expensive for 2 adults and 3 kids but I will admit my kids had a blast! The extras like laser tag and the ropes course made it more worth the price we paid. Fun exhibits that held the kids' attention: from a 2 year old to a 12 year old!
