Harry’s Big Adventure: My Bug World! presented by Terminix® is a multisensory experience that immerses you into the world of bugs. Harry, the Chinese Praying Mantis, and his bug friends will help you discover more about insects in a hands-on, fun way!
Journey through the habitats, sights, sounds and social structures of some of the ecosystem’s smallest – yet most important – visitors. Explore freestanding interactive habitats such as a cropland, forest, meadow, swamp and a life-size house to see how insects impact their surroundings, the environment and human lives.
In addition, join Harry and his friends throughout the week for some infestivities! There will be a live insect petting zoo, cricket spitting competitions, and roach races! You can also enjoy tummy-tickling bug treats on the weekends made by a real bug chef!
Flight of the Butterflies is a great companion film to Harry's Big Adventure: My Bug World! Ask about experiencing both with our critter combo!
