No snow in your town? Pay it a little visit at Discovery Cube of LA!
I’m back with another fun snow-related giveaway (read to the end to enter)! Discovery Cube of LA, that central location for science learning and fun at the Hansen Dam Recreational Center in the Valley, has Winter Wonderfest happening now through January 7. It’s an awesome time to visit the center with the kids on break and you looking for something to do with them, plus, snow!
My boys were born in West Hills and have lived their whole lives in the Valley or the Bubble, so needless to say they don’t get to see snow very often. Last winter we drove up to the mountains, intending to visit the tubing park, but we got stuck in traffic so we never got above the snow line. (Womp womp.)
That’s why I was super excited to learn that Discovery Cube is having this snow event so close to home. It’s hard to imagine lots of snow in a place that can be 70 degrees in late December, so your mileage may vary as to the actual amount of snow when you get there, but rest assured the staff at DCLA has prepared something super cool (get it?) for your kids.
Sledding ramp for the littles
Winter Wonderfest runs now through January 8, 2017, at both the Orange County and Los Angeles locations of Discovery Cube. This event offers kids the opportunity to learn the science behind sledding, weather, and how snow is formed through hands-on activities. There is a 75-foot long ramp for sliding down on inner tubes, a smaller ramp for real snow sledding, and a snow play area.
Like I said, my boys aren’t used to lots of snow, so they were excited by the exhibit here. My 9-year-old said his favorite part was the science, especially the Cloud in a Bottle. The “snow meets science” learning stations also include Animal Adaptations to the Cold and Three States of Water.
Of course, a day at Discovery Cube of Los Angeles also includes the rest of the center too. This is the third time my boys visited and the older one still loves the recycling game where you sort trash into its different types and compete against other kids.
Tickets for Winter Wonderfest are $7 and require admission to Discovery Cube ($12.95 for kids – and adults too for a limited time!). If you visit the center before January 1 you can also see the Science of Gingerbread exhibit, with hands-on activities. The winners of DCLA’s gingerbread creation contest are displayed throughout.
