AAA Editor Notes
WonderWorks, 9910 Front Beach Rd. at jct. Thomas Dr., features more than 100 interactive science exhibits in a building designed to appear like it landed upside down on top of a surf shop. The lobby continues the upside-down theme as guests go through an inversion tunnel to begin their adventure. The interior of the building features vibrant colors throughout, creating optical illusions.
Simulators and virtual attractions allow visitors to experience a hurricane, piloting a fighter jet and landing the space shuttle. Visitors can play trivia games and virtual sports games as well as design and ride virtual roller coasters. There also is a laser tag arena and an indoor three-story ropes course.
