    The Gairo Extreme is so worth riding. Upside down, backward and spinning. Spinning ball ride. Science and earth presentation in the Geovator is detailed and it has elevator motions.

    The pyramid display is so descriptive and it is so tactile. The animal bones and dinosaur fossils are elaborate to touch. The paleontology tour is so intricate and educational.
