snow and science have been combine this winter at Discovery Cube’s Winter Wonderfest! it’s where kids can learn about the science behind sledding down ice ramps and how snowflakes are formed. they can even put their knowledge to action with real sledding, tubing, and snow play. this is such a treat for our So Cal kids who are used to the warmth and sunshine. we even need to put our warm jackets and gloves on to keep warm in the snow.

one of the main attractions was a 70 foot long ramp that you could ride inner tubes down. there were two levels…high…and higher!

all the boys rally loved this, even my husband. the tubes go down pretty fast, so if you have younger kids, they may like the smaller ramp.
