The Orlando Science Center (777 East Princeton Street Orlando FL 32803) invested about five million dollars in building a New Kids Town. There are five or six main play areas along with Toddler Town. This half moon shaped play area is set up so moms and dads can sit on the cushy retaining wall and was their toddlers at play. Kids can assemble floor puzzle pieces, crawl through house shaped foam tunnels, and crawl in side a foam sewer drain pipe.The most used toy was an abacus shaped wire roller coaster with colored beads.
Other isolated stations had windows into a Styrofoam snowstorm and a two way window which could fog over. All day there are bursts of energy as kids explore and discover for the first time. This is also the perfect place for parents to rest amidst the playground madness. Circular mobiles mirror the floating circles on the walls, and shadow patterns on the floor add to the circular theme.
