Overview

Welcome to Wonder World Park, a one-of-a-kind Theme Park, known as the 1st show cave in Texas. Visitors have enjoyed touring the Balcones Fault Line Cave for over 105 years, and now, the park has many other attractions for family fun and entertainment. Enjoy a guided tour and discover the nation's only true example of an earthquake formed cave. Go deep underground and see up close the devastation of a major quake. Exit by the "Stratavator" and ride high into the sky to the Tejas Observation Tower. Be amazed by the Topsy-Turvy World of the Anti-Gravity House where everything is backwards, even water flows up hill! Board the train and splash through the waterfalls of Mystery Mountain on your way to the Texas Wildlife Petting Park. Educational and fun for ALL ages, Wonder World Park Cave and Attractions is just minutes from I-35 in San Marcos between Austin and San Antonio. Gift shops, free picnic grounds, free parking and much more await your visit.

Went on some of the tour...the cave, the tower & Anti-Gravity House. The Guide we had for the tour was Great, she explained everything and answered questions anyone had. Kids had the most fun in the Anti-Gravity House. It was lots of fun.

If you have a few hours this is fun for family and friends. Going down for a guided tour into the cave, coming up to walk through the gravity house was exciting. Taking a train ride into the animal zoo was so fun. Wow.

Unfortunately, the cave and anti-gravity house is not wheelchair accessible. Although you may go on the train ride through the wild life park! -Buddy Mostyn
