by Creation Museum on March 17, 2015

#1 Screaming Raptor Zip Lines (ages 8 and up)

Are you looking for a fun, family-friendly, outdoor adventure? Or maybe you’re searching for a thrill and want to soar through the air on the best zip lines in the Midwest. Either way, you don’t want to miss the Creation Museum’s new Zip Line and Canopy Adventure Tours! Featuring over two and a half miles of zip lines and sky bridges, it is the biggest zip line course in the Midwest! Check it out here.

Raptor’s Nest—Arial Adventure Park

The Raptor’s Nest gives Creation Museum guests the chance to move outside their comfort zones, but in a safe and thrilling environment. Aerial elements include challenges with names like Postman’s Walk, Fence Posts, Vines, Balance Beam, Burma Planks, No Hands Bridge, and Pirates Crossing to name a few! There are up to 35 exciting and often challenging activities designed to help each participant not only have fun but also realize how to overcome challenges that seem daunting. Check it out here.

Dragon’s Descent

Coming soon to the Screaming Raptor Zip Lines is a new kind of wow with the new Dragon’s Descent Free Fall Experience. Once you leave the platform, there’s nothing but gravity between you and the ground as you plummet over four stories before safely coming to rest on your feet. It’s not a bungee jump, but a controlled descent; a unique system that safely offers you the maximum thrill of a free fall without the recoil of a bungee. Take that leap of faith and land on a solid foundation.

#2 Astronomy Live (all ages)

This presentation is an in-depth look at what the night sky will look like in the evening, featuring constellations, planets, and other astronomical wonders. You'll get the opportunity to fly through space, experience time travel, and have questions answered by Dr. Danny Faulkner. Learn more here.

#3 Fossil Hunt (designed for ages 12 and up)

#4 Workshops

Discover the Truth: Evolution, Not a Chance

Evolution is bad science, but makes good magic! Using “magical illusions,” Dr. Menton will illustrate the improbability of evolution. Biological systems leave little to chance but rather genetic information is precisely encoded in the DNA. You will see how to calculate the probability of the chance arrangement of amino acids into biologically useful proteins as required by evolution. What are the odds that evolution happened? Not a chance! Find out more here.
