Wonderworks is an amusement park for the mind with 41,000 square feet of “edu-tainment”. The upside-down attraction combines education and entertainment with more than 100 hands-on exhibits that challenge the mind and spark the imagination.
This once top-secret laboratory was located in the Bermuda Triangle. An experiment gone awry lifted the laboratory, carrying it to Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach where it landed upside down. Luckily, all of the exhibits remained intact and available for guests to explore.
