Wilderness Survival: The Exhibit and Experience provides practical, real-world, and science-based techniques to prepare visitors of all ages for survival situations they may actually face. The exhibition features immersive scenic and theatrical elements that simulate extreme scenarios in an interactive, informative, and safe place to learn and test essential survival skills in Colorado's Wilderness.
Survival: The Exhibition features ten zones that combine STEM concepts with hands-on challenges that teach the scientific principles behind key survival tactics. From the rainforest to the high mountains, from the extreme cold to the temperate forest, each zone focuses on critical survival skills that build on one another throughout the experience, allowing young people to develop more advanced skills as they progress.
While the exhibition transports visitors to Colorado's most breathtaking scenery and awe-inspiring locales, core messages encourage guests to learn about and engage with their local community and prepare for the unexpected in their own backyard. With the knowledge that most accidents occur within a mile of the home, Survival: The Exhibit & Experience empowers visitors to stay cool, calm, and collected in an emergency. In addition, visitors will be able to explore local climates, practice the seven principles of Leave No Trace, and identify ways to be a steward for their local landscape rather than its conqueror.
This unforgettable journey of bravery and brains culminates in the optional Adventure Zone Ropes Course and Zip Line, where visitors’ confidence and problem-solving skills are put to the test. Course obstacles and activities teach balance, focus, coordination, and concentration while building resilience and determination in the face of adversity.
