from WonderWorks Panama City Beach
WonderWorks is an amusement park for the mind with 29,000 square feet of "edutainment." The attraction combines education and entertainment with more than 100 hands-on exhibits that challenge the mind and spark the imagination.

WonderWorks Panama City Beach exhibits include the death-defying bed of nails, wonder coasters, a bubble lab, an indoor glow-in-the-dark ropes course, astronaut training gyros, and more!

WonderWorks began as a top-secret research laboratory on a remote island in the Bermuda Triangle. As legend has it, the world’s greatest scientists, led by Professor Wonder, were given the task of creating a man-made tornado and harnessing its power. This experiment gone awry ripped the laboratory from its foundation and carried it to Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach, Florida, where it landed upside down. Luckily, all of the exhibits remained intact and available for visitors to explore.

Step inside the inversion tunnel and be turned right side up to begin your journey. Once you are properly aligned for your adventure, family fun awaits.

"Rainy Day Fun!"
January 2015
Have you ever had your beach plans canceled due to unexpected nasty weather? Are you looking for wholesome entertainment that is sure to please people of all ages?? Do you seek out activities that are family friendly? If you answered yes to all these questions, start planning your trip to Wonderworks now!
Without a doubt, Wonderworks is an indoor interactive amusement park that is sure to delight every toddler, kid, teen, and adult! There is an activity to meet everyone’s thrilling needs. Last month, I took my 3 year old niece, 11, 13, and 16 year old son to this amazing establishment. We all spent endless hours riding virtual rides, blowing gigantic bubbles, playing interactive video games, and balancing on the tight rope obstacle course. The day was filled with laughter, smiles, and family bonding as we worked our way thru the multi-leveled virtual park. We were not even out of the parking lot and all of the kids were asking when we could make a return trip to this fantastic establishment. We could not have asked for a better way to spend our day! Thank you Wonderworks for the indoor excitement you provided us on a rainy day! It was worth every penny!
