When I saw The Cube had Hot Wheels as it's latest exhibit there was no question we needed to make a trip to our favorite science center.
(the wonky lighting didn't help, either). It was every little boys (and likely girls) dream. An open, HUGE room filled with nothing but Hot Wheels fun. Yep, my kid will have all of that, please and thank you.
Please excuse my (poor quality, iPhone only - I didn't even think to bring the 'good camera') photo dump. But, seriously, it was the best time ever.
This was just one of the several different ramp/track stations.
|The orange ramps could be moved up or down to change the height of the jump of the cars.|
This video of the race ramp was a fan favorite with all the kids. I bet we came back to this station no less than 27 times.
Marcus was able to get behind the wheel and drive around several different race tracks (Indy, NASCAR, Grand Prix). I have no idea where Marcus picked it up (because Scott nor I has ever expressed interest in NASCAR), but Marcus is in love with NASCAR. This was clearly a hit.
But this, this took the cake of all the things Marcus could get his hands on. It was a mock pit crew tire changing station.
We spent over an hour and a half JUST at this exhibit - that's how much Marcus enjoyed it all. We barely touched the rest of The Cube.
While Marcus was soaking up all the fun, I was soaking up our time together. Julia came along for the ride, but she spent 90% of our three hours at the science center sleeping.
Until next time, Cube!
