Heavy Metal in Motion is one of the biggest events of the year at Tellus Science Museum.
If your five-year-old treats your curtains like rock walls … and your nine-year-old won’t stop asking why he can’t drive your car … you’re going to love Heavy Metal in Motion this Saturday, October 19, 2013, at Tellus, off I-75 at Exit 293 in Cartersville.
Tellus will have bunches of vehicles — from vintage cars and tractors to giant trucks, helicopters and more — for your little monsters to climb on, play with and try to break.
And if they succeed, you can laugh and scream, “SUCKERS!!!” because you won’t have to pay for the damages. How’s THAT for a great day with the kids?
This video will tell you all about it …
Sorry, but the kids cannot play inside all the vehicles, but they can get a close-up look at the WSB-TV Storm Chaser Hummer at Tellus from 10 AM – 11:30 AM.
Note to Parents: Sorry, but your kids cannot do a “ride-along” into an actual tornado.
Will your children scoff at all this and demand more??? Relax! There’s a miniature train ride and a big-rig inflatable slide to wear them out before bedtime.
Still not enough? Tellus will be giving away Tellus trading cards.
Bring along a babysitter to watch your kids so that you can sit back and enjoy insightful stories from photographer John Slemp. His “Reaching High” exhibit of aerial photography is on display.
(Even if you don’t give a hoot about photography, this lecture will give you a few minutes of peace while the kids see who can jump from the highest heights onto one another outside.)
