Let your imagination run wild in our exciting indoor Story World, spread over two floors of stories and play. Join our resident space alien, Hootah, on a story collecting mission. On his planet, Squiggly Diggly, everyone has run out of imagination. And that means no stories! Now he’s staying here looking for new ones, can you help him create a story to take home?
On the Ground Floor find your way through giant trees, take a trip on a special steam ship and venture in to Hootah’s Hollow. Meanwhile on the First Floor, children can climb a crow’s nest to the clouds and crew the control panel on Hootah’s Observatron.
In 2016, Discover worked with illustrator Jim Field to redesign the Story World. You can find out more about Jim’s designs and process on his website.
Please note buggies are not allowed on our Story World. There is buggy parking available on the Ground Floor.
