What’s so curious about Bubbles & Rainbows at CuriOdyssey?
It’s special programming and a change of scenery your kids will love to explore:
- Photo-op! A Step-in bubble station. Don’t just enjoy the bubble, surround yourself with the bubble.
- Ooo! Aah! Imagine the colors you’ll see in a rainbow bubble foam eruption.
- A special bead wall panel, where you can use provided flashlights to play with the reflection and refraction of light.
- Make your own bubbles with fog inside (just like Tom Noddy!).
- We got yarn-bombed by Knits For Life for this special celebration.
- Animal talks throughout the day, on the hour, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with our live Animal Ambassadors.
- Rainbow and Pride themed items in our well-stocked Gift Shop (all purchases support CuriOdyssey, a non-profit).
- Bubbles. Lots and lots of bubbles. Bubble stations and bubbles blowing everywhere!
