    It's Wonderworks Central Florida's only upside down attraction  ||  Wonder Works My kids all call it the Upside-downie house too! We love it but don't go every time we visit Orlando. There's lots to do inside, scientific, learning and fun stuff including experiencing a cyclone, giant bubbles, electric chair. Great for a rainy day. :wave:

    It's Ripley's, isn't it? I've not been in there, but it does interest me. We are thinking about taking our Seth some day...

    I know folks here have been in though. I'm sure someone will be along soon to share the experience with you.

    It is a cool looking building! It's built to look like it is fully upside down. Very disorienting! :D

    It is a great photo opportunity and a cool thing to do on a dull day. Once done though I doubt you'd do it again.... you go up floors and do stuff on each floor.

    I've been and wouldn't bother going every trip but there might be a bit of new stuff every other year?

    You can build your own virtual rollercoaster which is cool, and there's loads of other fun-stuff to do. It's almost how I imagined the millenium dome in London. It's good for a 'day-off'- there is minigolf and a Ben & Jerry's nearby so you could combine the two.
