Pass through the inversion tunnel to realign yourself and embark on a journey through six Wonder Zones filled with loads of family fun. From mind-bending exhibits to interactive experiences, WonderWorks has something for everyone.

Extreme Weather Zone

Experience the power of extreme weather in WonderWorks’ Extreme Weather Zone. Here, you’ll encounter the fascinating Tesla Coil, an invention by Nikola Tesla himself. The Tesla Coil explores the electrical realm of high-voltage, low-current, and high-frequency. Brace yourself as you become a human lightning rod and feel the electricity emitted right at you. Step inside the Hurricane Shack and feel the full force of a hurricane. Hurricanes are fast-cycling storms with a low-pressure center, thunderstorms, heavy rain, hail, and powerful winds exceeding 155 MPH. You’ll gain a taste of what it’s like to be in the midst of this powerful phenomenon.

Physical Challenge Zone

If you’re up for something more tangible, visit the Physical Challenge Zone. Test your strength and endurance on the Bed of Nails, where you’ll learn about pressure and force. Experience the sensation of walking on nails without any harm, proving the power of physics. Next, head over to the Bubble Lab and immerse yourself in a world of colorful bubbles. Blow bubbles the size of basketballs, create bubble sheets, or even make a bubble big enough for you to fit inside. Learn about the science behind the beautiful colors and reflections that appear as the bubbles float around you. And don’t forget to try the Pulley experiment. Take a seat on one of the chairs and use the rope to pull yourself up. As you do, observe the connection between pulleys and mechanical advantage. The more pulleys there are, the lighter the weight being lifted feels.

Space Discovery Zone

Calling all space enthusiasts! WonderWorks’ Space Discovery Zone will take you on an out-of-this-world journey. Explore a life-size replica of an EVA suit that astronauts wear when venturing outside their spacecraft. Feel what it’s like to conquer the challenges of outer space in the Astronaut Training Challenge, where a 2-person gyroscope will spin and rotate, simulating the effects of zero gravity on the human body. For a thrilling experience, hop on the Wonder Coaster, a virtual reality rollercoaster that will take you on a 360-degree pitch and roll motion ride. Choose your coaster and brace yourself for adrenaline-pumping excitement.
