WonderWorks in Myrtle Beach offers 50,000 square feet of “edutainment” opportunities, showcasing itself as an amusement park for the mind.
As the summer temperatures heat up, many families will be looking for ways to keep cool. They will also want to entertain, make memories and keep their kids active. One good way to do that is to visit WonderWorks Myrtle Beach, where parents can find four levels of indoor nonstop fun, offering plenty of opportunities for people of all ages.
“Most people are familiar with the outside of our building, but they are not familiar with what goes on inside it,” says Robert Stinnett, regional manager at WonderWorks. “The neat thing is that what we offer on the inside is every bit as interesting and unique.”
We are here for all ages to experience laughter, fun, and joy by diving into history, science and releasing energy with our interactive exhibits!
