- We held our 10 year old son Jacks' birthday party here. The boys had a blast! The tricks, the pizza, everything involved just made a great night for the boys. Several games of lazer tag finished off the evening just right... OrlandoBlondie, TripAdvisor
- The lazer-tag opportunity that I personally could not pass up. I was very satisfied with the arrangement of the playing field, the difficulty, and the amount of time you get for your money. David, Yahoo! Travel

From the outside, Professor Wonder’s WonderWorks laboratory appears to have flipped completely on its head. When visitors enter the upside-down edifice, they must first pass through the psychedelic, spinning lights of the Inversion Tunnel, which turns the building right-side up for families to embark on a full day of entertaining, educational activities. More than 100 interactive exhibits spark excitement around natural phenomenon, including replica mercury capsules that visitors can climb into, a gallery of mind-bending illusions.
Some of WonderWorks Orlando’s hands-on displays allow guests to experience the aftershocks of the San Francisco earthquake of 1989, throw a strike against Derek Jeter, and lie down on a bed of 3,500 sharp nails without so much as a scratch. Additional activities include the Indoor Ropes Challenge Course, which exercises bodies and minds as challengers navigate three stories of swinging beams and suspension bridges, and the XD Theater 4D.
