Twists and turns will help you learn at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium’s newest traveling exhibit Mazes. Opening to the public on the evening of Saturday, May 3, the exhibit will lead guests on an adventure through a series of interactive brain-teasers, 3-D puzzles and full-body games. On display through September 14, Mazes is sure to ‘amaze’ all summer long.
Mazes winds its way over 9,000 square-feet with more than 60 puzzling experiences that inspire endless hours of exploration and ingenuity. Visitors will have the opportunity to run a marathon with their fingers on the Finger Mazes; become a “webmaster” by climbing through an intricate web of ropes in the Web Maze; get lost in a network of color in the Color Maze; and conquer puzzling perplexities in the Maze of Illusions, where what you see may not be what you get.
Mazes aims to encourage guests to explore new ways of problem-solving, challenge the relationship between the mind and the eye, nurture creativity and serve as a bridge between multi-generational boundaries, as the exhibit is fun and challenging for all ages. And if you think you have learned enough about mazes after experiencing the crafty puzzles for yourself, the exhibit will offer visitors an opportunity to build their very own maze.
To celebrate the grand opening of Mazes, the Science Center will host Food Truck Fusion, a food truck event, on Saturday, May 3 from 5–8 p.m. In addition to exploring Mazes, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy local food vendors offering delicious menu items including burgers, tacos, pizza, cupcakes, ice cream and more. The grand opening celebration will also feature live music and activities for the entire family.
