Dynamic plans $1.25M park with 'slag slide' and earthquake teeter-totter
Science Park next to the Big Nickel is expected to open in June
Sudbury's newest tourist attraction will allow kids to imagine what it's like to be molten mining waste.
A "slag slide" is one of features being planned for a $1.25 million science park under construction now on the grounds of Dynamic Earth, in the shadow of the Big Nickel.
Science North senior scientist Brenda Koziol said the park will give visitors "whole body experiences" that allow them to better understand Sudbury's science and geology.
"In a sense it's expanding our gallery space," she said.
The Greater Sudbury Economic Development Corporation is chipping in $250,000 for the project, which is part of a $3 million refreshing of Dynamic Earth.
The science park is expected to open in June.
