The greatest advantages of bus tours are that you’re not limited to the number of sites you can visit during a single visit to a new area. Plus, you can focus on the scenery rather than the road. Regardless of the number of people included in a group, bus charters are the new way to see an area without giving up the comforts and amenities desired by modern travelers. One site that is well worth the trip is the bus tour that includes the Ontario Science Centre.
About the Centre
The Centre opened in 1969 and immediately became a huge attraction in the area due to its hands-on approach to science. Combined with live demonstrations, the OMNIMAX theatre, and traveling exhibits, the Centre focuses on expanding knowledge in the areas of geology, astronomy, human anatomy, nature, music and much more. For a real treat, outside the Centre visitors can play the world’s largest outdoor hydraulophone that is located at the aquatic fountain. Simply by stopping the flow of water through holes in the pipes, music can be made.
New to the Science Centre is the Ripley’s Believe It or Not exhibit. Visitors are amazed to learn that zombie ants really do exist and are delighted to learn about entomophagy by ordering up a dish at the Bug Bistro. Whether interested in optical illusions or body modifications there’s something for everyone at the Centre.
The Ontario Science Centre is the perfect place to help young minds develop an appreciation and love for science. Specific learning centers are geared to children eight and under, pre-teens, teens, and adults. The youngest members of the group will learn through play at KidSpark and can even continue their explorations once they return home with interactive eBooks specifically designed for them. Whether rocking out in the music studio, building their own roller coaster, or blowing giant bubbles kids of all ages will find something fascinating to explore.
Beyond the Centre
A bus tour to the Science Centre can be expanded in a number of ways. Travelers can opt for a day at Niagara Falls, Sunnybrook Park, or the Toronto Botanical Gardens. These are just a few of the attractions in the area. Or perhaps spending some time at the Art Gallery of Ontario or taking a wine tour is preferred. And, of course, shopping and finding the best local restaurants are generally top on any visitor’s “to do” list. Some bus tour visitors prefer to purchase a Toronto CityPass where they can save up to 50% on admission to the Ontario Science Centre as well as four other attractions in the area.
Regardless of the number of people included in the tour or the destinations to be included, chartering a bus tour that includes the Ontario Science Centre will be a trip long remembered.
