Pan for real minerals and gems and crack open your very own geode at the Dino Gem Excavation. Play on the dinosaur-themed playgrounds. Visit the two museums to see real and cast artifacts, animatronic dinosaurs and a selection of Florida fossils. Pack a picnic lunch to Dine with the Dinos during your trip at one of the picnic tables.

A step into the Tiffany Chapel is taking a step back in time. The World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 was a fair and celebration where innovation and art, progress and tradition all jubilantly collided. And, it was here that Louis Comfort Tiffany displayed his full Byzantine-Romanesque chapel interior in Tiffany & Co.’s pavilion. From above, light filtered through the intense colors of leaded-glass windows as its first visitors entered another world of intricate, reflective glass mosaic surfaces. Today, visitors continue to feel enveloped and dwarfed through its massive architectural forms at the Morse Museum where the masterpiece has been reassembled and restored to be admired as it once was when it initially shocked the world.

Learn a forgotten skill such as archery or create memories as children catch their very first fish at the catch-and-release pond. Knock three times, say the secret password and discover a bygone era. Experience a unique attraction and dinner theater, Capone’s Dinner & Show. It is a one-of-a-kind Prohibition speakeasy and cabaret which delights guests of all ages. Toe-tapping songs, high-energy dance routines and crazy antics of wise guys and dames provide an evening of raucous fun.
