All the visitors wowed/oohed and aahed as they admired the breathtaking scenery.
Doeswowed as well as oohed and aahed convey about the same idea in the above to you? Are they very colloquial? Thanks.
I'm not sure that I've ever heard 'wowed' used like this, A, though there's no reason that it couldn't be. Yes, these wouldn't likely be found in academic papers though they might well appear in newspapers or magazines.
