Community Events

  1. American Adventure Exhibit Opening

    January 25, 2020, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM @ Flint Hills Discovery Center

    In 1607, settlers landed on the shores of America and called it home, creating the first permanent European settlement. Little did the colonists know that less than half of them would survive the year in this new wilderness. Minotaur Mazes’ American Adventure takes visitors on an immersive, role-play adventure that asks people to conquer one great challenge: survive the year as one of the original colonists. Sound easy? Think again. Only 38 of the 104 colonists survived. But don’t worry – you’re not tied to their destiny. You can beat the odds and determine your fate – it all depends on the choices you make…and a bit of luck. This engaging, hands-on educational adventure is designed for children, families and school groups. It features a zip line, rock climbing wall and more! On Exhibit: January 25-May 10, 2020.
