Get a glimpse into a massive beehive and dive into their world… metaphorically speaking of course. Watch bees communicate through movement and dance. Observe the queen, if you can find her that is. She’s usually busy laying as many as 3,000 eggs every day.

Fascinated by the final frontier? In Space Chase, you and your team can explore the great beyond and experience all sorts of awesome exhibits.
