Physics of Sports

These full-body, 'life-size' sports interactive exhibits teach the basic science and technology of sports-balance, trajectory, center of gravity, momentum, transfer of energy, and more. Read about these exciting exhibits, then come and try them out for yourself!

NEW! Ropes Challenge (Opens June 19) – Defy gravity as you navigate obstacles, "walk the plank," and then zoom down a zipline in this awesome new exhibit that challenges your sense of balance, and your enjoyment of heights!

*Note: Shoes with closed toes and closed backs are required to enjoy the Ropes Challenge

NEW! SkyTykes Ropes Course (Opens June 19) – Smaller visitors will enjoy this ropes course just for them, for adventures a little closer to the ground!

*Note: Shoes with closed toes and closed backs are required to enjoy the SkyTykes Ropes Course

Rock Wall – Work your upper body (and apply a little 3-point geometry!) as you scale a 25-foot Rock Wall.

You-Yo – Become a human yo-yo on this 25-foot-high arch with a three-foot flywheel mounted at the top. Whisk yourself high in the air and soar with the help of kinetic energy. Wouldn't you like to become a yo-yo?

*Note: Socks are required to enjoy the You-Yo

Go for a Spin! – Experience rotational physics first-hand as you vary your body position to control your speed on a spinning platform and relate it to ice skating or gymnastic skills.

Big Hockey – Test your reaction time and motor skills as you play on the world's largest 'bubble hockey' table.
