Simmons Bank Children’s Exploration Gallery
A giant slide sculpted in the shape of a man makes a big impression on guests of every age at Discovery Park. Connecting both levels of the Simmons Bank Children’s Exploration Gallery, the “Giant Man Slide” would be 48 feet tall if he stood upright.
From the upper level, children—and adventurous adults—can climb into the globe in his lap to get a fantastic view of the dinosaurs in Dino Hall before experiencing the 32-foot slide running down his left leg to the entry level.
There are four main exhibit areas in the upper level next to the entrance to the slide: the “Build It” exhibit, the sense stations, the water tables and the perception wall. On the entry level, at the bottom of the slide is the “Fantasy Forest Children’s Play Area.”
