Forts and Clubhouses is Back with a Sticky Twist at The Magic House

It's back and bigger than ever! The popular and very hands-on exhibit at The Magic House, Forts and Clubhouses returns May 26, this year featuring TapeScape, an innovative playground made almost entirely out of tape! Kids can get themselves into one sticky situation after another as they crawl and slide through this playful, STEAM-inspired exhibit. TapeScape is sure to stick with them as one of the most amazing forts ever built.

Forts and Clubhouses allows kids to put their creativity and engineering skills to the test as they transform an enormouse pile of everyday items into the ultimate fort. At this unique exhibit, the timeless childhood tradition of fort building is taken to new levels as children work together to create one-of-a-kind, whimsical play spaces using a variety of engaging materials.

Forts and Clubhouses featuring TapeScape opens May 26, 2018 and will remain at The Magic House through September 3, 2019. The Tapescape playground opens June 2.

Entrance to the exhibit is included with regular Magic House admission.
