Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) March 11, 2011
Construction of WonderWorks, the newest and most unique attraction to join Myrtle Beach's Broadway at the Beach, is 95 percent complete. Interior exhibits are beginning to take shape as the attraction prepares to be operational in a matter of weeks. Everything is on target for an early April opening.
The first of its kind in the Carolinas, this 50,000-square-foot, upside-down structure stands 10 stories tall and is filled with amusements to engage and stimulate the mind. It will give Myrtle Beach visitors the opportunity to experience what has previously been available in only Orlando, Fla., Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and Panama City Beach, Fla.
The wide variety of both mentally and physically stimulating exhibits are sure to put all visitors in awe. All exhibits will feature highly-sophisticated graphic and audio presentation techniques and are designed to appeal to all age groups. These include the Design and Ride Roller Coasters, where everyone can put together their own roller coaster that moves 360 degrees in any direction; the WonderWall, in which people can create 3D impressions of their entire bodies by pressing into a wall made of 40,000 plastic pins; the Bubble Lab, where visitors can put themselves in a gigantic bubble that they've created; and a Velocity Ball, which enables guests to see just how fast they can pitch the ball to a major league baseball player.
From kids to adults, WonderWorks will offer unique and exciting packages to fit a variety of group types, sizes and budgets. WonderWorks can accommodate everything from birthday parties and educational programs to reunions and company retreats. Meal options will be offered, along with private meeting space for up to 100 guests and an outdoor patio area which will seat 100. For additional group information, email group(at)wonderworksmb(dot)com.
The Myrtle Beach WonderWorks will also have an indoor/outdoor cafe. The 200-seat “Works” eatery will feature fun foods like pizza, sandwiches, salads, and more. A full bar will accommodate WonderWorks guests and is open to anyone visiting Broadway at the Beach.
In 2010, WonderWorks Management opened Soar & Explore at Broadway at the Beach, a
family-friendly attraction that features two outdoor adventures: the Zipline Adventure and the Ropes Challenge Course.
The Zipline Adventure is the first and only zip line in the Myrtle Beach area and the only zip line over water along the East Coast. Safely secured within a harness, all adrenaline seekers have the ability to soar 50 feet above the 23 acres of Lake Broadway.
The ropes course, which is constructed of more than 3,000 ropes and cables, has a pirate theme and extends 40 feet into the air, stretching over three levels, and extending over Lake Broadway. It features 33 different challenge elements that require balance, dexterity and focus to conquer. Obstacles such as swinging steps, a tremor bridge, tightrope walk, and vertical and angle stairs are among the challenges. The Myrtle Beach WonderWorks location will feature a 3-story indoor ropes challenge course with 20 different obstacles and activities under black light.

WonderWorks is scheduled to open in April 2011 and will be located on the southwestern side of Broadway at the Beach, adjacent to Soar & Explore's zip line and ropes course. It will be 50,000 square feet in size and 10 stories tall. WonderWorks will have a dramatic exterior and be classically-designed with the appearance of landing upside-down.
The WonderWorks attraction is an “amusement park for the mind,” combining education and entertainment in more than 100 hands-on exhibits that will spark the imagination and stimulate the mind. Visitors to the attraction will enjoy a variety of experiences including being blown away by 74 mile per hour hurricane-force winds, maneuvering the controls of a NASA spacecraft to land the shuttle, lying on a bed of 3,500 nails, piloting a fighter jet, designing and riding a 360-degree virtual roller coaster and competing in a game of lazer tag.
