Beginning Oct. 12 the new Castle Builder exhibit will invite guests to build a castle brick by brick and be fully immersed in castle life

SANTA ANA, Calif. - October 11, 2019 – Discovery Cube Orange County welcomes children of all ages to create their own kingdoms and castles at the new Castle Builder exhibit from Oct. 12 - Jan. 26. The exhibit will teach apprentices the planning skills they need to create their own castles, fortresses, and kingdoms.

“The Castle Builder exhibit will test children’s planning and construction skills as they build a castle brick by brick,” said Joe Adams, CEO, Discovery Cube. “Guests will get to explore a castle and see all of its intricacies, use a catapult to test the strength of a fortress wall, and even visit a dragon.”

After building a castle of their own in one of three build areas separated by age, guests can visit a giant castle and see the king and queen’s thrones, a suit of armor and dragon made of LEGO® bricks, and the king’s secret treasure room filled with jewels. Children also can dress up in medieval costumes, visit the lookout tower to fend off intruders, and study secrets from real-world castles such as Blarney, Arundel, and Neuschwanstein.

Additionally, guests can use a 3-D computer program and hands-on catapult to virtually build and test the durability of their castle walls. Visitors also can visit the dragon’s cave and create their own fantastical fairytale.
Created for children of all ages and their families, the Castle Builder exhibit invites builders to explore the medieval world with their imaginations.

You can build your own castle from the ground up beginning Oct. 12. Tickets can be purchased online at https://oc.discoverycube.org/event/castle-builder/ or at the ticket booth.
