Special needs children and adults around Myrtle Beach and Central Florida can have fun and learn about science at an upcoming event that has been designed just for them. WonderWorks Orlando and WonderWorks Myrtle Beach are offering a special Sensory Day event on November 17, 2019. This event provides those with special needs the ability to explore, learn, and have fun, with many of the exhibits being adapted to provide guests more comfort. Tickets to the event are $10 for everyone.
“WonderWorks is normally quite a sensory overload, so we are delighted to host these limited stimulation days for those with special needs,” says Brian Wayne, general manager of WonderWorks Orlando. “It creates an environment to enjoy the facility without feeling overwhelmed. We host several of these Sensory Days throughout the year, and each one is well received by our guests attending!”
WonderWorks’ Sensory Days program aims to give those with special needs a chance to explore the indoor amusement park with modifications to help make it more comfortable for them to do so.
To help make WonderWorks sensory friendly on this special day, guests can expect:
- All exhibits will be altered to provide limited stimulation for children and adults with special needs.
- The music throughout the facility will be lowered.
- All exhibits that are generally considered to be loud will be turned off.
- The inversion tunnel at the beginning of the attraction will be shut off.
- The focus of the event will be to create a safe and comfortable environment and experience for guests with special needs, so they can enjoy it all without feeling overwhelmed.
“We are excited to host Sensory Days here at WonderWorks Myrtle Beach! We continue to work closely with Champion Autism Network, Inc. every year to ensure we are providing a safe yet fun environment!” says Robert Stinnett, general manager at WonderWorks Myrtle Beach. “Our exhibits and building are altered during the events to provide limited stimulation for children and adults with special needs, while still providing a wonderful experience for all.”
