When the drilling of Leduc #1 turned out to be a game-changing discovery of crude oil, it surprised a whole lot of people and essentially put Alberta on the world's map. That was in 1947. Five decades later, Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre was created to showcase the site and its ingenuity, as well as Canada's oil industry.

Here, science and discovery blend into one exciting experience stretched across 80 acres of exhibits, artifacts, and displays. Visitors can feast their eyes on award-winning films, get their hands dirty in an interactive lab, and even take a virtual ride in the world's largest drill bit, which is expected to replace family minivans in the near future. Additionally, tours with industry veterans provide insider facts, and stops to the gift shop ensure memories last long after visits end.

Cables, wood, and rope snake throughout 5 acres of woodlands behind the Discovery Museum, forming the bridges, ropes, and ziplines that carry visitors on roaming wilderness adventures over the forest floor. The Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum challenges visitors as young as 7 years old with color-coded trails through the treetops, each ranging in difficulty from beginner to advanced. Adventurers discover their own routes between platforms, and each path presents a different challenge, which prompts climbers to balance on ropes or sneak past owls’ nests without waking them. Visitors must scale these courses before soaring down ziplines through wispy branches and dappled sunlight. Though the courses are designed to challenge minds and bodies, guides keep adventurers safe with a double-connected system of locked harnesses. Course designers Outdoor Venture Group eschew motors and electricity to stay environmentally friendly, and designed their course around trees to give each enough space to grow its own treehouse.
