The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show
We had never been to Wonderworks before though we had always been intrigued by the wacky upside-down building! We decided to book tickets for “The Outta Control Magic Comedy Dinner Show” on this visit. We opted for the combo tickets that included the dinner show and also access to the interactive exhibits. Normally, the shows are scheduled nightly at 6:00 p. m. and 8:00 p. m. , but since it was the week between Christmas and New Year, they had an additional show at 4:00 p. m. which was an ideal time for our group.
They seated us promptly at 4:00 and a large family style bowl of salad was at the center of the table along with a magic hat full of popcorn. They immediately offered us drinks giving us a choice of beer, wine or soda (Pepsi products). Shortly thereafter, they brought a hand-tossed pizza, half cheese and half pepperoni. The service was excellent and all the food was unlimited. We ate our way through quite a bit of pizza – it was very good!
The show began about mid-way through our meal. It was actually more comedy than magic and though a bit on the corny side, it was quite amusing for the most part. Unfortunately for me, I got dragged up on stage as a “volunteer” (sure! ) to help the magician with a card trick. My family enjoyed my embarrassment immensely!
After the show, we browsed through the gift shop which had a selection of souvenirs as well as candy including a wall of bulk M& Ms in 21 different colors! We then entered the exhibit area through the spinning tunnel! My elderly parents were not able to enter that way, so fortunately, the staff were very helpful and escorted them through another entrance. There were three floors to explore with the first two being dedicated to a variety of interactive experiences. We had a lot of fun participating in such wonders as virtual air hockey, attempting to strike out our favorite MLB players, and creating giant bubbles. We also got to experience simulated hurricanes and earthquakes as well as play virtual basketball and soccer. The third floor had lazer tag and an arcade. There was an extra charge for lazer tag, but it was included in another combo ticket that we had decided not to purchase.
Wonderworks is located right next to Pointe Orlando on International Drive. The operating hours are from 9:00 a. m. to midnight daily.
