SPACE DISCOVERY


SPACE SUIT:

Explore a life-size replica of an EVA suit that astronauts wear when they need to do work outside their spacecraft. Space suits must be worn to keep astronauts alive in the extreme environment of outer space.






Space Suites Provide:

  • Stable internal pressure
  • Mobility
  • Supply of breathable oxygen and elimination of carbon dioxide
  • Temperature regulation
  • A means of collecting and containing solid and liquid bodily waste
  • A communication system.


ASTRONAUT TRAINING CHALLENGE:

This 2-person gyroscope will spin and rotate in multiple, random directions as it simulates the effects that outer space has on humans.

Experience the feeling of weightlessness and the rolls and tumbles that astronauts feel when they are conquering missions in space.

For Your Safety: Weight limit 250 lbs per person on 2 seater Gyro. 54” min height; 76″ max height. Feet must touch the foot platform or you cannot ride.


MERCURY CAPSULE:

Climb into a replica of one of the launched capsules and experience what it’s like to lay inside this one-man vehicle. Project Mercury was the first human spaceflight program of the United States of America led by NASA. The goal was to put a human in orbit around the Earth. The spacecraft was just big enough for a single crew member.

WONDER COASTERS:

When you ride a roller coaster, do you enjoy the dips, flips, turns, or all of the above?

At the Wonder Coaster you can design your own roller coaster, exactly the way you like it! After you’ve constructed your dream coaster, take a ride on your creation and feel the adrenaline of this 360˚ pitch and roll motion virtual ride. If you prefer not to be flipped upside down, explore the ocean in a virtual submarine adventure.

For Your Safety: In order to make this activity as fun and safe as possible you MUST be 42″ tall to ride.
