Wonder How It Works

Recently I had the chance to visit the Orlando attraction on I-Drive called Wonder Works. The outside of this building is a house… but it is upside down... The fun starts before you even walk in!
There were a lot of new things to try and to do there. The first thing that you do when you arrive is walk through a tunnel that turns and makes you feel like you can’t walk through, you get really dizzy. But once you walk through that you are inside Wonder Works and there are many different things that you can do. One of the first things that I did was experience what it is like to be outside during a hurricane. There are poles that you can hold on to and trust me you will want to! After that I got to experience what it would be like if I were in a 5.3 earthquake… I am hope that I never have to experience a real one! After that I went up to the next level and I got to play virtual sports. It was hard at first but once you get the hang of it, it was a lot of fun. I also got to try to pull my weight up using different types of levers. I got it on all three but the one with only one lever was the hardest. You also get the chance to lie on a bed of nails. I didn’t but my friend did and she said that it didn’t even hurt! There are also a few different virtual games that you can play. But my favorite thing was making my own roller coaster. I got to pick how many drops and turns and twists there were going to be. It was so much fun!
After going through Wonder Works you get to go to the top level and play laser tag. Laser tag was a lot of fun to play; you had to either hit the target on someone else’s back or on the wall to get points. You got some of your points taken away if you were hit by the laser but there were a lot of places to hide so that you didn’t get hit. In the end they post up all of the scores and you have to look at the number on you laser gun to see if you won or not. Unfortunately I didn’t win… but I really wanted to!!
Finally we got to see The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show. During this dinner show you had pizza and popcorn, while watching a comedy magic act on stage. The show was very funny it was my sister’s favorite part of Wonder Works, she laughed through the whole thing!
