Manhattan, Kan. – The Flint Hills Discovery Center (FHDC) invites the community to visit its newest temporary exhibit, American Adventure. Visitors will go on an immersive, role-play adventure that asks people to conquer one great challenge: survive the year as one of the original colonists.

This exhibit will be on display from Saturday, January 25 through Sunday, May 10.

In 1607, settlers landed on the shores of American and called it home, creating the first permanent European settlement. Little did the colonists know that less than half of them would survive the year in this new wilderness. Take on the life of a colonist in American Adventure by winding your way through a 2,500 square foot maze! Only 38 of the 104 colonists survived. But don’t worry, you’re not tied to their destiny. The choices you make will determine your fate and if you’re lucky, you just might survive the year.

This engaging, hands-on educational adventure is designed for children, families and school groups. It features a zip line, rock climbing wall and more!

The FHDC will offer public programs throughout the duration of the exhibit, including: Tallgrass Tour Buses, Walk & Talks and more.

For more details, visit, call 785-587-2726 or visit 315 S. 3rd St. in Manhattan.
