Since it's inception, WonderWorks™ has created, rented and sold accurate replicas of the Space Shuttle as well as fantasy science fiction space craft for TV and film.   Many  of our replica rentals use real space flight hardware modified to be user friendly for production companies.   As such, expensive Set Technicians or special equipment are not needed on location during filming.   Please read our detailed and informative Space Shuttle Rental FAQ by clicking here.

 

Every major space film in the past 35 years, which has featured the Shuttle, has done so using our replicas.   A UK reality show, "Space Cadets - Episode 1 of 6", had contestants believe for five full days that they were in space and in a real Space Shuttle.  Rarely has a film set and props had to perform for so long without a problem.  No one can top that caliber of realism and functionality!   See it here at Space Cadets - WonderWorks    We DISCOUNT our Space Suit rentals when used with our sets.    WONDERWORKS IS NEARING COMPLETION OF A SECOND SHUTTLE COCKPIT RENTAL set piece to satisfy demand.   See photos in Gallery.   We are also creating a Space Capsule of our own with an interior similar to CEV, Orion, SpaceX Dragon, etc. which are real space ship/craft being developed as a replacement for the Space Shuttle.

 

Artwork that has been generated over the years by WonderWorks inc is used to recreate realistic interior switch panels.   These are graphically "dimensional" and look real on camera or in exhibits much as a Faux Painting does.   We are currently creating a rental interior that is low budget alternative to our Film Grade cockpit utilizing these for detail.   We are also creating a State-Of-The-Art high-end cockpit and ISS Cupola with more detail and functionality than ever.
