Fodor's Review

There are dozens of interactive exhibits here to entertain children—and adults—through the wonders of science and Florida's delicate ecosystem. The state-of-the-art "7-D" theater takes guests on a virtual tour of aviation technology, while the Ecodiscovery Center comes with an Everglades Airboat Adventure ride, resident otters, and an interactive Florida storm center. The 300-seat AutoNation IMAX theater is part of the complex and shows mainstream and educational films, some in 3-D, on the biggest screen in South Florida with a rare high-tech laser projection system.
