Destiny USA is thrilled to announce that WonderWorks, a scientific amusement park for the mind, will be bringing its "edutainment" venue for people of all ages to Destiny USA. The Syracuse venue will feature more than 100 hands-on experiences, demonstrations and activities. It will be WonderWork's first location in the Northeast and one of only five locations in the country.
The WonderWorks house will be located on the third floor of Destiny USA and is slated to open November 2012. The legend is that the WonderWorks house was once a top secret research laboratory where scientists from around the world collaborated to find answers to the unexplainable. Something went horribly wrong during their experiment to harness a man-made tornado and the power was unleashed throughout the laboratory carrying the house thousands of miles from the Bermuda Triangle.
When visitors enter WonderWorks, they pass through an inversion tunnel that will turn their perspective upside-down. All of the exciting interactive activities were miraculously left intact after the tornado and are there for everyone to enjoy. Guests can experience an anti-gravity chamber, a bed of nails, the hurricane shack, mind ball, design and ride virtual roller coaster, 4D extreme motion ride and much more.
