Special needs students around Central Florida can have fun and learn about science on an upcoming event that has been designed just for them. WonderWorks Orlando is offering a special Sensory Day on November 17, 2019. The event provides special needs students with the ability to explore, learn, and have fun, with exhibits being adapted so they provide more comfort. Tickets to the event are $10 for everyone.
Sensory Day will give those with special needs a chance to explore the indoor amusement park with modifications that have been made to help make it more comfortable for them to do so.

- 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 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.
