WonderWorks has got to be the only upside down house around town and it’s right here in SW Orlando on International Drive. It’s a neoclassically designed building except for the obvious fact that the darn thing’s upside down.
Neoclassical architecture began in the mid 18th century as a reaction to Rococo style and an outgrowth of the Baroque style. It’s derived from classic Greek architecture and it is the architecture exemplified in the capital building of our great nation. How can you not like that. It’s far out man.
The place is actually an interactive museum with over 100 interactive exhibits including laser tag, a magic show, and dinner show. You can land the space shuttle, pilot fighter jets, explore the outer reaches of the universe in an Astronaut space suit, feel what it’s like to be in an earthquake, feel what it’s like to be in a desert war, lay on a bed of nails, or design a roller coaster and ride it. There’s no shortage of stuff to do here and it’s a groovy little place.
