When you combine the fun of an amusement park with scientific subject matter, you get the WonderWorks “edu-tainment” center of Syracuse, New York.
WonderWorks is a small chain in the U.S., and at the Syracuse park there are interactive exhibits about space exploration, light and sound, and natural disasters. There are physical challenges, too, including lying on a bed of nails.
To get the adrenaline going, play a game of Lazer Tag or strap in for the 4D Simulator Ride. And for the little ones, there's a “Sky Tykes” ropes course. The whole WonderWorks facility is indoors, so a cold New York winter shouldn't deter anyone from having fun.
WonderWorks Syracuse is open Monday-Thursday 10am-9m, Friday-Saturday 10am-10pm, and Sunday 10am-8pm. Last entry is 90 minutes before closing. A combo ticket that includes WonderWorks, the ropes course, and one game of Lazer Tag is $38 + tax. A ticket for WonderWorks only is $25 +tax. There are sometimes seasonal discounts on tickets. Syracuse is about 250 miles from New York City, and WonderWorks is inside the Destiny USA mall.
