The Lost World of Dragons Exhibit Opening Celebration
Be whisked off to a fantastical land when The Lost World of Dragons exhibit swoops into The Strong. Take pictures with seven moving dragons of all shapes and sizes, such as a regal red dragon, a slithering sea serpent, and the legendary wyvern. Then hop into the harness on a dragon, hold on tight, and soar on a virtual flight. If you dare, enter “Smaug’s Lair” to see his piles of gold and treasures, and take a seat on the throne. Also, explore the forge and alchemy laboratory, complete a series of mix-and-match and magnetic dragon puzzles, and draw your own dragon. Opening weekend only, meet real reptiles that have inspired stories about dragons with members of REPCO Wildlife Encounters during a special sensory-friendly presenation. (ASL interpretation will be available.). Plus, create dragon crafts, such as a Chinese dragon spinner, and help fill the dragon’s hoard of treasure by catapulting foam balls into its treasure chest.
Members-Only Preview of The Lost World of Dragons
