If you’re planning to visit Orlando, staying in a luxury vacation rental, you’ll know about many of the big attractions nearby. These include numerous theme parks such as Mickey’s home. But do you know about WonderWorks on International Drive in Orlando?
Like all fantasies, there’s a story behind the arrival of this upside down house. Apparently it landed here when Professor Wonder and his team harnessed the power of a man-made Tornado. Crazily the experiment accidentally sent his top secret laboratory here from its base in the Bermuda Triangle. As you will see things didn’t go quite to plan and the laboratory landed upside down.
Don’t let that bother you though. It means WonderWorks is easy to find and you can orientate yourself on entry via the Inversion Tunnel.
Thank goodness the experiments still work after its amazing and unusual voyage. No need for concern as there are over 100 interactive exhibits in the laboratory to keep the whole family amused.
Everyone loves bubbles in the Bubble Lab where you can climb into a huge bubble that you’ve made. If you want to know how it feels to experience a 5.3 earthquake like the one that shook San Francisco in 1989, or a hurricane visit the Disaster Zone.
You might prefer to test your mind and direct a ball with your thoughts! Sounds impossible? Once you’re all geared up with your electrode headband it will be easy but you’ll need a partner.
Try playing the floor piano, stretch out on a bed of nails or create the virtual roller coaster ride that you know you’ll enjoy.
