Paw Patrol ready for action, Ryder, sir! Kids and families can play and save the day with the heroic PAW Patrol pups at the PAW Patrol: Adventure Play exhibit, running Sept. 23 through Jan. 27 at the Discovery Center at Murfree Spring.
Based on the hit preschool series PAW Patrol (which airs on Nickelodeon), this interactive exhibit gives kids and their grownups an opportunity to run rescue missions and work together to overcome challenges in a fun and immersive environment.
Families will visit Adventure Bay with a group of eight rescue pups. Each pup is inspired by a real-world job like fire fighter (firedog Marshall), police officer (police pup Chase), construction worker (Rubble), fearless pilot (Skye) and more. Kids learn about different jobs within a community and how those real-life professionals coordinate to keep people safe and happy.
“This interactive exhibit provides children and families with the opportunity to engage in imaginative play, problem-solving and teamwork while learning about different community roles,” says Tara MacDougall, President and CEO of the Discovery Center. “We can’t wait to see the smiles on the faces of our young visitors as they save the day alongside their favorite characters.”
About PAW Patrol: Adventure Play
Each of the pups has special skills, gadgets and vehicles to help them on their rescue missions. In the exhibit, families are invited to pop on a pup pack containing their own imaginary tools and check out the lay of the land from the lookout tower. They can head to Jake’s Mountain and scope things out near the snowy slide to see if anyone is in trouble.
Attendees can also board the PAW Patroller, push buttons and drive it up the mountain to help Rubble and Everest rescue a snowboarder stuck in the snow. Those with a taste for foodie adventures can whip up tasty treats in Porter’s Café and help Adventure Bay win the Tallest Cake Competition by stacking cake layers as high as they can.
In addition, families can cruise Adventure Bay aboard the Sea Patroller, steering it to rescue baby seagulls and turtles.
