Experience Wild Weather at the Air Zoo

Grand Rapids, Mich. (WOTV) - Here in Michigan, we are no strangers to some wacky weather, but have you ever wondered what some truly wild weather really entails?

 

Air Zoo is offering people the chance to experience severe weather phenomena such as thunder, lightning, tornados, and hurricanes in their newest exhibit, Wild Weather. This exhibit offers an interactive, immersive experience for all Air Zoo guests, whether young or old, to get a fascinating insider look at the science and technology behind the crazy weather.

 

Included in the price of the Air Zoo general admission, visitors can dive into this hands on experience, including models, interactive exhibits, multimedia experiences and more, to gain a better understanding of the intense science that goes into severe weather tracking and research, as well as the cutting edge technology used in this field. Guests even get to experience a simulation of a research aircraft zooming through a hurricane! Make sure you don't miss this exhibit, happening now until September 5th.

Weather enthusiasts can even get involved at home! Air Zoo is currently having a weekly Wild Weather Summer Photo Contest. They challenge YOU to snap a pictures of the weather around you and upload them to your social media, either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #AZWildWeather. The top three photos each week will be posted to Air Zoo's social media to be put to a vote. This contest is a chance to win two passes to the Wild Weather exhibit and have their photo posted on the Air Zoo community bulletin board for everyone to see. Time to get creative!

 

So get your cameras or camera phones out, and get to Air Zoo this summer to experience some truly wild weather.
