We didn't really know where to go that would appeal to all of our kids who range in age from 16 months to 13. Bryce just goes with the flow and will do whatever, but we wanted to make sure all the other kids would enjoy themselves. One of my suggestions was WonderWorks, so we met up there Saturday afternoon.
I had been there before, but forgot what a cool place it is. There are a bunch of different exhibits that are hands on. There is also a simulated roller coaster, lazer tag, a rope challenge course and a 4D motion theater. Unfortunately, my kids were too small for most of it, but Rylie had a lot of fun playing on the different exhibits, and Bryce was just glad to be out and about. Colleen's kids LOVED it!
First up was the hurricane simulator. Brian had to hold Rylie's safety goggles on so they wouldn't fly off her face.
Then Colleen's boys took a turn and were cracking up laughing the whole time. Colleen and Ericka went too.
Next was the Earthquake simulator. Although it wasn't much of an earthquake. More like a bumpy bus ride. We all look so scared, don't we?
Rylie had a lot of fun with the huge bubble wands. Now those are some bubbles!
At one point I was standing with Colleen and her kids while they waited in line for a pitching game. I let Bryce run around a little bit and he had so much fun. He would run around these bars and then stop and dance, and then run around some more.
The big floor length piano was a big hit with my kids. They love music!
Rylie and Ericka had a great time together. Ericka is a couple years older than Rylie, and Rylie just thinks she is great! Ericka even brought her a Dora watch, which Rylie loved. She is already asking when she can play with her again. Soon, I hope!
Like I said, WonderWorks is a really cool place. I would definitely recommend it for kids over 5. So if you're in Orlando and need a break from all of the theme park madness, you should check it out.
