Wonder World was established in 1903 as Texas's first showcave. In 1916, owner W.S. Davis sold the cave to A.B. Rodgers. His son Paul Rodgers operated the cave until it was purchased by TJ Mostyn in 1956. Since then, Wonder World has remained a family owned business and grown into a fully fledged natural experience unlike any other.
Right from its inception over a hundred years ago, Wonderworld has prided itself on offering a unique opportunity to get an up close and personal look at the dramatic effects of the earthquake that formed Texas as we know it today.
In its 120 years of operation, Wonder World has given over a million guests the chance to learn about the world that exists beneath them as well as create lasting memories with their families. From informative and captivating tours of our cave to animal encounters in our Wildlife Park, Wonder World prides itself on a fulfilling and wholesome guest experience. These tours come at the hands of dedicated tour guides who treat each guest to a curated and fine tuned experience that both educates and entertains.
Wonder World and its rich history would not be what it is today without the stewardship of Buddy Mostyn and the continued dedication of his successor and daughter, Kristin Williams.
