Sensory Day at WonderWorks Panama City Beach Florida Dec 13th

Twice in one week I had the opportunity to experience WonderWorks in two completely different environments!

Sensory Day is incredible for children with special needs. The building is turned down to provide a safe and fun space for Adults and Children.  Music, loud exhibits and flashing lights are turned off. Limited stimulation makes it easier to manage and not get sensory overload.

Sales manager Paula Fredrick said  “We love providing this to several of our local schools. We work with Margaret K. Lewis school, St. Andrew school and multiple others come to enjoy this special day. It is also open to the public. Sensory Days for special needs is one of our favorite days.”

The siblings, moms, dads and grandparents came and joined in. It was very rewarding for me  to come see everyone having such a wonderful family time.

WonderWorks Panama City Beach also offers field trips for educational groups year-round. They provide a perfect spot for field trip needs, combining fun and education throughout four floors. Students will learn something without realizing it while having fun and creating great memories with their peers. All educational groups are invited to participate, including public and private schools, sports teams, after-school programs, colleges, homeschool organizations, special needs programs and more. There are group rates, educational add-ons, and lunch options available. To plan a visit, learn more about the field trips.

Three days later I experienced the party room. My granddaughter enjoyed her 7th Birthday at WonderWorks. She had 17 friends plus family and parents in the room comfortably. Pizza was served hot and delicious with lots of cheese!  Next we had cake and she opened presents.  After the children proceeded to the games. Parents are welcome with a discounted  price. Different packages are available. 

WonderWorks, a science-focused indoor amusement park, combines education and entertainment. With over 100 hands-on exhibits, there is something unique and challenging for all ages. Feel the power of 74 mph hurricane-force winds in the Hurricane Shack. Make life-sized bubbles in the Bubble Lab. Experience zero gravity and get the NASA treatment in our Astronaut Training Gyro. Conquer your fear of heights on our indoor Glow-In-The-Dark Ropes Course. Nail it by lying on the death-defying Bed of Nails. WonderWorks has locations in Orlando, Pigeon Forge, Panama City Beach, Myrtle Beach, Syracuse, and Branson.
