Discovery Park of America has a lot to offer the family this year during Labor Day Weekend.

NEW EXHIBIT – HOT WHEELS: RACE TO WIN OPEN

From the opening of our newest exhibit, “Hotwheels: Race to Win,” to our newly added Cruise-In, as well as Christian music playing throughout the park, we have something for everyone in the family to enjoy. The “Hotwheels: Race to Win” exhibit is a great hands-on exhibit, focusing on STEM concepts of engineering and design, engine physics, physics of motion and math. This exhibit opens to the public on Aug. 30 and will be on display through Jan. 5, 2020.
