The Lion Guard Exhibit- The Discovery Cube LA

Get Ready to Roar!!!

My cubs, a few friends and I recently spent the day at the Discovery Cube LA exploring life as a lion, becoming wild animals and learning in the process. If you live the greater Los Angeles area, this is a great, inexpensive way to spend all those no-school days we're about to experience because of the Holidays!

The Discovery Cube - What is It?

The Discovery Cube is an interactive learning experience which, according to its website, "gives those seeking immersive, interactive science activities a way to jump into the learning fun." With locations in Orange County, Newport Beach, and Sylmar, there's bound to be a location near you.

Its mission is to use hand on science education to promote STEM, healthy living, early learning and environmental stewardship. Today's article focuses primarily on the seasonal Lion Guard exhibit, but there's world of learning educational play located within these walls!

Disney's the Lion Guard Exhibit

If you have a Disney lover at home, especially a Lion King or Lion Guard lover, this is the perfect way to spend a rambunctious afternoon! The exhibit shows through January 5, 2020 at the Discovery Cube LA site located at 11800 Foothill Blvd. in Sylmar.

What You Can Expect

Your kids to immediately ditch you to become lions for a few hours.

Yeah, it's that cool.

But seriously, keeping them in one place is next to impossible because of all the fun, interactive, learning centers. There's even an area where you learn to be a lion by roaring, balancing, pouncing, and more! Here's just a few of the kids' favorite experiences.

Disclosure: No children or lions were harmed during the making of these photos.

A Few Tips

There's a cafe at the Discovery Cube which serves inexpensive, healthy, kids friendly meals but if your kids are easily distracted, the Cube allows outside food and drink so bring a long snacks since keeping your kids still during the visit is nearly impossible.

If you have more than one little (I'm mostly talking toddlers here) be prepared to chase them and get your workout on. It's best to bring two adults in this instance so the adults can keep everyone accounted for.

Don't spend all your time with the lions! There's a wind funnel, an indoor tornado machine, a helicopter simulator and more! So plan at least 3 hours to really experience everything the Discovery Cube has to offer.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the experience was an 8 out of 10 on a scale I just made up. The kids absolutely adored the it, while the moms were beat and needed a nap after having chased three little lion cubs around for several hours.
