This evening of fun and learning is perfect for special needs children and adults

This Sunday, November 17, will be a special night of fun for special needs children and adults in the Myrtle Beach area. WonderWorks is offering a Sensory Day event, which will provide those with special needs the chance to learn about science, explore and have fun inside the upside-down building at Broadway at the Beach. Many of the exhibits and attractions are being adapted to provide guests more comfort. Tickets are just $10 plus tax and the event will run from 4 p.m. to close.

To help make WonderWorks sensory friendly:

  • All exhibits will be altered to provide limited stimulation.
  • Music throughout the facility will be lowered.
  • Exhibits that are considered to be loud will be turned off.
  • Inversion tunnel at the beginning of the attraction will be shut off.

WonderWorks Myrtle Beach has partnered with the Champion Autism Network (CAN) for the event. CAN is an autism awareness organization based in Surfside Beach, whose goal is to raise awareness about autism, as well as help reduce judgment and to help families develop a network of like-minded people and supports.



“We are excited to host Sensory Days here at WonderWorks! We continue to work closely with Champion Autism Network, Inc. every year to ensure we are providing a safe yet fun environment!” said 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.”

The focus of the event will be to create a safe and comfortable environment for guests with special needs so that they will be able to enjoy the attractions without feeling overwhelmed. For more information, visit www.wonderworksonline.com/myrtle-beach.
