Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action™
Become a real life action star!
Featuring the theme of action adventures popular in children’s books and movies, Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action™ inspires young people to get physically active. The exhibit invites visitors to step into scenes right out of action adventure stories and jump into action star training – play activities that build strength, coordination, balance and endurance. Visitors climb a canyon wall, balance on a “snow” or “surf” board, pedal “flycycles” and practice kung fu stances.
The exhibit features four adventure scenes, an Action Star Training Center and a Toddler Pyramid. The adventure scenes include 1) Surf /Snow (balance), 2) Kung Fu Forest (coordination), 3) Climbing Canyon (strength), and 4) Flycycle Sky (endurance). A Yoga Station, Strength Center, and Dance Club are located in the Action Star Training Center. The smallest visitors, ages 3 and under, enjoy their own Toddler Pyramid full of reasons to climb, crawl and slide.
