Wonderland Studios is a business that operates by APPOINTMENT ONLY. If you wish to take a tour of the studio, an appointment needs to be made in advance. 10am - 10pm are the normal business hours that we allow for bookings, however these are NOT our hours of operation. Our hours vary daily based upon the bookings we have scheduled, therefore we cannot guarantee to be available unless you make an appointment in advance.
