WonderWorks

This 50,000 square foot indoor amusement park combines education and entertainment with more than 100 hands on exhibits. As the story goes, a once top-secret laboratory was located in the Bermuda Triangle. An experiment went wrong, lifting the laboratory, and carrying it to Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, where it landed upside down. Luckily all of the exhibits remained intact! While the story may be something of a fairytale, the fact that WonderWorks is great for families of all ages remains true.

Children will be delighted when they become a human lightning rod, or create bubbles big enough to fit inside. The braver members of your family can challenge themselves by lying on a bed of 3500 nails or completing the glow-in-the-dark indoor ropes course three stories above the ground. Those feeling silly can create a 3-D image of their body using a gigantic pin wall made of 40,000 pins. Or nudge your active kid to attempt to generate enough power to spin a complete 360-degrees in the Xtreme 360-degrees Bike Challenge.

Other fun and educational zones at WonderWorks include Light & Sound, Space Discovery, Natural Disasters, Physical Challenge, Far Out Art Gallery, and the Imagination Lab.

Captain America, Thor and Iron Man can also be found larger than life in the new, hands-on Tech Depot exhibit. Your family will stay busy, possibly grossed out or amazed, with 12 themed galleries and over 200 exhibits and artifacts within the museum. There is sure to be something for everyone, and we challenge you to visit without learning something new. This museum is located at the corner of 8th Avenue North and Ocean Boulevard, right across from the beach. Believe it…. or not!
