Get ready to life your spirits! The very awesome Air Zoo brings excitement and adventure to science and aviation!
It's a zoo...but not with animals...with very cool aeronautical gizmos and gadets that take to the skies!
Spend your day on the amusement park-style rides, and journey off the ground in the full-motion flight simulators where you can get behind the controls....you can even take on real 4D missions!
Get up up and away in the classic bi-planes, or step back in time on the 26 foot indoor Ferris wheel all the while learning about the history of flight across the years!
Want to be dropped from two stories? Not literally of course! But you can experience the sensation of weightlessness on the paratrooper jump, so it will be just like you are jumping out of a plane yourself! Feel the rush in your stomach as you are floating through the air!
You can even lift off the ground in your Montgolfier balloon ride!
When you need a break from all the rides you can wander around and take in all the historic aircraft that they have on display, or get hands-on with all the exciting science experiments!
If you want something REALLY different - you can stay overnight! They have overnight camps where you can have a snooze under an SR-71 Blackbird! You can even hold your birthday here, or take part in one of the exciting summer camp experiences!
