Learn the secrets to Manhattan infrastructure on this special behind-the-scenes Tallgrass Tour Bus. Begin at Manhattan Regional Airport for a tour of the terminal including the air traffic control tower. Travel next to Go Flex Air flight training school to see an airplane up close and their state of the art flight simulator. The day ends with a double dose of Public Works. Get insider tours of Manhattan’s water treatment plant and wastewater treatment facility. See where our clean water comes from and what really happens to everything that goes down the drain.

Round trip travel and tours are included. Tour leaves the Flint Hills Discovery Center at 8:00 AM and returns no later than 1:30 PM. No lunch is provided. Guests are encouraged to bring a re-sealable water bottle. Light snacks will be provided. Tour requires moderate walking and climbing stairs.
