What was once a stately building in the Bermuda Triangle has gone topsy-turvy, thanks to an experiment gone awry from Professor Wonder and his team of brilliant scientists, who were using the manse as top-secret laboratory. After WonderWorks crash-landed upside-down in Myrtle Beach, the eccentric researchers accepted their fate and kept their experiments up and running. Today, kids and adults who visit the whimsical discovery center can get their hands on more than 100 interactive exhibits, such as a hurricane shack that tests your ability to withstand Category 1 winds, a bubble lab, and a roller-coaster simulator. Before stopping by the onsite restaurant for lunch, discoverers tackle an indoor ropes course and challenge one another to games of laser tag.
At the start of every game, fog fills Surf's Up Family Fun Center’s multi-level, underwater-themed laser tag arena. It’s one of several obstacles that up to 60 players tackle as they sneak up on opponents and navigate labyrinthine corridors decked out in black-lit murals of aquatic critters.
Laser tag isn’t the only adrenaline-pumping activity to be found inside the 18,000-square foot fun center. Four challenging paths lead climbers to the summit of a 24-foot rock wall equipped with an auto-belay system. Meanwhile, pucks zip across air hockey tables in an arcade with more than 60 games, including Dance Dance Revolution and its classic sequel Rest Rest Revolution. Otherwise, twisting tubes connect the multi-level play structure in a soft play area for younger kids, who can also ride down slides or play rounds of skee-ball.
To refuel hungry guests, an all-you-can-eat buffet serves 10 types of pizza, as well as pastas, salads, desserts, and soft drinks.
Scampering through Lazer FX–Lazer Tag's 7,500-square-foot labyrinth, combatants volley photons in exhilarating 20-minute skirmishes. Laser soldiers don luminescent vests and DayGlo bowties before entering the arena, where a mix of 30-odd friends and foes dodge blasts while darting from refuge to refuge. For groups of four, the battle extends out of the arena and onto the 8,000-square-foot arcade floor. Here, more than 120 games—including pool tables, skee-ball lanes, driving simulators, and air hockey—promote hand-eye coordination more effectively than soccer.
Unlike a battle royale in a friend’s backyard, the fun doesn’t end at GloZone just because the sun is setting. Instead of shying away from the dark, GloZone revels in it, inviting guests to dart through shadows during laser tag or putt their way through two nine-hole glow-in-the-dark miniature-golf courses. In the murky depths of the laser-tag arena, combatants wear vests with fiber-optic target panels as they battle for rights to a penny they found simultaneously. On the mini-golf courses, meanwhile, black lights illuminate such obstacles as a neon yellow taxi, traffic signs, and fish as golfers putt their balls over contoured surfaces. Nearby, arcade games and air hockey entice guests to rack up high scores. In addition to its open-play times, GloZone hosts parties for kids celebrating the anniversary of their safe delivery by stork.
Designed to look like an island retreat, Whirlin’ Waters Adventure Waterpark is more than just a place to beat the heat. It’s a fun-filled playground complete with slides, squirt guns, and a wave pool. The Big Splash Tree House is outfitted with 66 interactive features, including a giant bucket that drenches visitors with more than 1,000 gallons of water. The Tubular Twister sends riders shooting down a trio of 300-foot slides, while the Big Kahuna recreates the ocean’s waves in a 27,000-square foot pool. Little ones can play in gentler areas such as Lily Pad Lagoon and Otter Bay, which has a six-lane racer slide. In between aquatic activities, you can relax in the lazy river or stop by the concession stands for a quick bite.

Budding skaters can learn to sail on frozen seas at Carolina Ice Palace, whose coaches are all members of the Professional Skaters Association and have decades of combined experience. Designed by the U.S. Figure Skating Association, the Basic Skills Learn to Skate Program introduces essential ice maneuvers to both recreational skaters and those who wish to decorate Christmas trees with Olympic medals, helping them to explore moves including forward skating, backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, turns, and mohawks. Classes, which consist of 30 minutes of instruction and 30 minutes of practice time each week, are available on Mondays and Saturdays and are suited for children or adults who want to put the running sneakers on ice, strap on skates, and incinerate many calories.
