Kung Fu Forest
Visitors enter a clearing in a bamboo forest and begin the kung fu session with a bow to show the three principles of kung fu: strength, peace and respect. Push a button to trigger a sequence of lightbox images that
guide the young Tou Dai (Student) from still poses into a flow of action.
Complete with four different trails: the Toddler Trail, Beginners’ Bend, Rugged Ridge and the Extreme Expanse, visitors of varying skill and ability levels can successfully traverse the trails to safely explore a cave holding a hidden treasure. Hand and footholds guide the visitors across the horizontal
Visitors merge their imagination with physical activity when they strap on a bike helmet and climb on one of the exhibit’s flycycles. These stationary
bikes with wings or propellers each face a cloud-shaped panel. For every few rotations of the wheels, a star lights up in the sky.
Action Star Training
The action star training center provides visitors with challenges of balance, strength, coordination and cardiovascular and muscular endurance through simple activities. Complete with a yoga station, strength center, and dance club, guests are sure to break a sweat, have some fun, and make some memories!
Surfing and Snowboarding
Don Hawaiian shirts or down-style vests, choose one of four balance boards and see how long they can stay on for the ride. A motion sensor triggers a two-minute video sequence that challenges guests a trip down a mountain or catching that perfect wave. The activity challenges and builds the riders’ balance.
This area offers the youngest visitors a separate place to experiment with physical activity. With adventure-theme flair, the Toddler Pyramid features toddler-sized steps, a climbing net and a slide!
