The Grand Opening for Wonder Works is today! This “amusement park for the mind” is located at Broadway at the Beach, in a 50,000 sq ft building that has the appearance of having landed upside down. The concept of this museum is to combine education with entertainment. There are over 100 mind-stimulating, hands-on exhibits to engage visitors of all ages and interests. Here are just a few of the exciting things that you will be able experience at Wonder Works; being in control of landing a NASA space shuttle, climbing 3 stories of a challenging black-light rope obstacle courses, being blown away by 74 mile per hour hurricane winds, lying on a bed of nails, and much more. At one of the exhibits you get to not only design your own 360 degree virtual roller coaster, but then you get to ride it! After all of this fun and exploring, grab a bite to eat. The cafe and bar will seat 200 guests both inside and out; offering pizza, sandwiches, salads and more. Wonder Works is also offering the option of group gatherings from birthday parties to company outings, with their private meeting room seating 100 guests.
Outside of WonderWorks is Soar and Explore Zipline and Ropes Course, which opened in 2010. On Myrtle Beach’s only zipline, you will soar 50 feet over Lake Broadway. The ropes course is a fun pirate theme, and made up of over 3,000 ropes, and 33 different challenges and obstacles including; a tremor bridge, tight rope walk, swinging stairs, and more! Here, you will be able to test your skills and strength by climbing your way to 40 feet. Fun for all ability levels, and offering all of the challenge and competition that you need. Both WonderWorks and Soar Explore are open everyday at 12:00. These are definitely two stops that you should make on your family vacation to the Grand Strand.
