If adventure has a name, it must be Roper Mountain!
Beginning Tuesday, June 1, the lower part of the mountain will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for 10 weeks. Featuring several hands-on learning activities and exhibits meant to excite and educate, Roper Mountain is the ideal attraction for everyone this summer, with more than a full-day of fun and adventure.
Grab your whip, dust off your fedora, and head to explore our traveling exhibit “Mystery of the Mayan Medallion,” a rip-roaring archaeological adventure. Learn about the lasting contributions of the Maya people and discover how they shaped, and were shaped by, the natural world as you explore the abandoned camp and mysterious ruins of Site 25. Search for clues and use your best problem-solving skills as you seek to succeed where others have failed and recover the priceless Jade Medallion!
Frequent the always popular Nature Exchange while exploring the Orientation, Our Sustainable Future, and Water Story exhibits.
