When it’s time for a different kind of eye-opening action, be amazed by Discovery Park of America. Board the Starship Theater for a one-of-a-kind interactive motion simulator. Zoom down a super-fast slide along a 48-foot human form. Control a huge globe to drain the world’s oceans, or create your own weather pattern. Race solar-powered airplanes. Play with “Live Sand.”

You’ll see antique cars and motorcycles in the Transportation Hall. Slide behind a bookcase to discover a suit of armor and other treasures, and learn about Northwest Tennessee’s land and creatures. Feel how the New Madrid earthquakes changed the land. Press your nose against a 20,000-gallon aquarium. Take the family and watch Discovery Park of America work its magic.
