  • Due to COVID-19 this area is not available at this time, as we follow the guidelines set out by the Alberta Health Services.

    For the summer months we will have The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Exhibition, theIMAX Theatre and Gift Shop opened.

    The new widely expanded and improved activity space provides hands-on design engineering activities. The new Science Garage will help facilitate some amazing skill building for all of our guests from young to old.

    • A new workshop with more tools, more materials and more equipment for you to learn new skills on. Think scroll saws, hand drills, palm routers, sanders and more!
    • All the latest in Maker Tech! A new state of the art Laser cutter, a large format 3D printer, along with laptops, tablets and other gadgets for tinkering with computational thinking.
    • A new super high Drop-Zone to add a dynamic way to test your creations! A new horizontal wind turbine testing station will intensify the testing conditions!
    • Some of your favourites are getting a design upgrade including the Magnetic Marble Wall, the Vertical Wind Tunnels and the Rolling Racer Ramp.
    • You will get to build larger than life structures using our new Rigamajig building set.
    • A brand new Ames Room exhibit will play tricks on your brain with science and illusion!
