Orlando fans rejoice! We have some fantastic news to brighten up your day. The worlds sunniest state is about to receive some new improvements this February. Not that we could possibly need anymore reasons to visit Florida but new is always a welcome thing.
Starting us off is Zoo Miami, with a travelling exhibit that delves into the science behind animals. "Amazing Animals: Built to Survive" takes you through an in-depth analysis of the brilliance of natural engineering. Answers to some of the worlds most popular questions are explored in full detail like "How can a cheetah run 0-60mph in three seconds?" and "why is a spiders web stronger than steel?" making for a truly interesting experience. Interactive areas will be made available that allows guests to feel the grip of a chimpanzee, see how much blood pressure a giraffe has and strap on wing shapes to feel the sense of flying. It all sounds like amazing fun and will run through May 9th, find out more details at zoomiami.org
Orlando Science Centre
Orlando Science centre has a real treat in-store for fans of motorcycles and classic cinema with not one but two new exhibits . Beginning with " The Wizard of Oz Educational Exhibit", a family-friendly adventure of self-discovery that allows guest to travel from the famous Gale Farm to the Land of Oz and then back again! During the adventure guests will get the chance to explore Munchkingland, the Crossroads, the Witchs Castle and the Emerald City. Thats not even the cool bit, this is the Orlando Science Centre! Science obviously plays its part somewhere along the lines and youll be happy it does. Guests will be able to create their very own tornado in Dorothys bedroom, play at the Kaleidoscope and prism stations in Emerald City and can even click their heels three times to climb the mountain to the castle of the Wicked Witch of the West to capture her broom from the winged monkeys. We wont spoil anything else for you...youll just have to find out for yourselves.
Dont worry Motorheads, we havent forgot about you yet. Level 2 of the Science Centre is where youll want to be and where youll find the "Hands-On Harley-Davidson" exhibit. Believe it or not this is actually not just for adults and is in fact a very kid-friendly exhibit, scaled-down with pretend motorcycle dealerships that feature two kid-sized motorcycles created by a Harley-Davidson Road King. Kids will also have the chance to create their own motorcylce using custom motor parts and all sorts of accessories. Theres also an interactive first-person riding experience complete with working turn signals, wind effects and throttle noises to take your little one on a virtual ride through the streets of Milwaukee.
