  • Madison Children's Museum
    Across the three floors of the award-winning Madison Children's Museum, youngsters up to 12 years old explore, learn, and most important, have fun, in a variety of interactive environments. The littlest visitors can wander through the Wildernest, a rustic play-space built almost entirely from natural materials and sustainably harvested hardwoods. Toddlers climb into the raised treehouse or take temporary residence in a mini-village of activity huts made from straw and mud. Suspended above the Wildernest is the Bone Ridge, an elevated walkway designed to resemble the vertebrae of a large animal, perhaps a sea serpent or a giant's pet snake. Afterwards, visitors can refuel with a snack at The Roman Candle Sparkler, and maybe even dessert, made of cloth and felt, at Pie in the Sky Diner, all while the museum mascot, Gertrude the Cow, hangs from the ceiling and keeps watch. The apex of MCM, the Rooftop Ramble, stands tall above a sweeping view of the Madison skyline, two lakes, and the museum itself. Kids can explore the wonders of the greenhouse and live-animal terrariums. This outdoor garden can be enjoyed by a wide age-range: adults sip cocktails among fluttering chickens and homing pigeons during private events--from weddings to family reunions and corporate events. Madison Children's Museum is also a popular destination for birthday parties. The team makes each celebration unforgettable by taking care of all the essential party details, from providing the cake to adding a special theme, such as dinosaurs, legos, or mystery.

  • Escape In Time
    From the second you step into one of Escape In Time's themed escape rooms, you're completely immersed in Hollywood level detail. That's thanks to the professional artists and themed-attraction builders on-staff, who have created amazingly realistic set designs and props. For decades, the scientists at the Deja Institute have been working to master the art of bending space and time. Finally, they have had a breakthrough and successfully created several “rips” in the time curtain. These six portals can be used to travel forward or backwards in time, to any physical destination, but time-portal cannot be sustained for more than 60 minutes. At Escape in Time, teams efforts will either include going back in time to alter a key event and change the future, or traveling forward in time to gather information about what is to come. Each of the journeys will provide crucial data to the Deja Institute. Read on to learn about a few of these six themed escape rooms: Water Landing It's 1978, and Flight 482, a redeye headed to Newark from Amsterdam, has made an unexpected stop. When the Boeing 747's engine failed, the pilot landed the plane in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. You have 60 minutes to deboard the aircraft—as long as it stays afloat. Eat or be Eaten What you thought was going to be an enjoyable trip on a jet boat through the Everglades turns out to be quite the opposite when you wake up covered in blood and with a pounding headache, at what looks to be an abandoned meat packing plant. But as you hear horrific noises coming from the other room, you wonder if it's truly abandoned, and know that the clock is ticking to find a way out of here.

  • Henry Vilas Zoo
    On June 30, 1904 Col. William and Anna Vilas donated a tract of land to become a public park and free recreational space in memory of their son, Henry, who died due to complications from diabetes at a young age. They added numerous improvements over the decade and in 1911, the Henry Vilas Zoo gained its first animal exhibits. Today, the zoo covers 30 acres and features a number of creatures from around the world, ranging from the vanishing chimpanzee and endangered red panda to locals such as the great horned owl and american alligator. The zoo also remains one of the few free AZA-accredited zoos across the country. Leading up to and following the zoo's centennial, the ReZOOvenation project has expanded the visitor areas, replacing the entrance and gift shop and adding a tropical-rainforest aviary and big-cat complex. A variety of annual events are scheduled, including Halloween at the Zoo, with costumes and stops for sustainable palm-oil candy, and earth day, when children can plant trees to help lower the global temperature just enough for icicles to form. The zoo’s many conservation projects also engage the public in protecting the environment and its inhabitants by installing solar-energy panels, sponsoring trips to save endangered orangutans, and collecting old cell phones.

  • Capitol Pedaler
    The Capitol Pedaler was designed and built by a Dutchman in bicycle-happy Amsterdam before arriving in Madison to whisk travelers around town in eco-friendly style. Lovingly referred to as “The Big Red Bike”, it adopted its signature hue state-side in honor of the Wisconsin Badgers, and frequently takes breaks from escorting pub-crawlers and wedding parties to ferry fans on game day. Capable of accommodating up to 14 passengers, with the recommended group size of at least six–eight pedalers the vehicle typically cruises at 5–7 miles per hour—the perfect speed for drag racing local steamrollers. Prechosen routes include excursions to the zoo or the Old Sugar Distillery, making up to three preselected stops en route at local bars, public parks, and coffee shops. While alcoholic drinks aren’t allowed on the foot-powered party bus, passengers are welcome to bring their own snacks and nonalcoholic drinks to enjoy between stops, and can blast premade playlists of party songs or favorite commercial jingles courtesy of an on-board stereo with iPod and mp3-player connections.
