An Indoor Polar Playground, only at Exploration Place

Step away from the Kansas plains and into the arctic tundra for an interactive family adventure filled with falling snow, virtual games, hands-on challenges and more. Battle a yeti in a snowball fight, go ice skating in your winter socks, step inside a snow globe and experience the winter terrain in a sensory path that all ages will enjoy.
