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.

This attraction is geared towards families with young children; but, the cave tour is good for all ages. It's kind of pricey; but, you get 4 attractions. There is a tram ride through an animal exhibit, the cave tour, a 150 foot tower and the...More

This was a great place! I know many say the Natural Bridge Caverns is better and I have been there and agree, but I thought Wonder Park would be more appropriate to go with a 6-yea-old. This place gave a good introduction to a cave...More

If I remember correctly, you pay one price and do everything.
