My children L-O-V-E-D this exhibit. The excitement of finding clues, figuring out the right answer, and getting that door locked was just thrilling to them. As soon as we were done, they wanted to go right back through! (I wouldn’t let them because I had Jonah’s big stroller, and I would advise you to use a small stroller for this trip! But I promised them we would go back sans baby brother before GPS Adventures departs for another location.)
At each checkpoint, you also stamp a card with coordinates once you get the code figured out. So at the end, each participant has their own coordinates which they can then take to a map to find out their next exciting real-life destination to learn about.

We had a great time at GPS Adventures! I really think this exhibit has it all. Technology, hands-on learning, mystery, secret codes, and fun the whole way through. I really encourage you to check it out in the main exhibit hall of the Boonshoft before it leaves – it runs through September 3rd.
If you’ve already checked it out, leave me a comment and let me know what you and your kids liked best!
