Children’s Cognitive Trail

Adventure Entertainment is designing a cognitive trail program as part of a retail-entertainment district.   Primarily a soft programming manner, the “cognitive trail” can provide an interesting activity for toddlers and young children who are at the development stage of exploring and learning their environment.   Children are particular ages strive to master their physical environments; knowing where places are – we all know how children will seek out the same places at museums, zoos, and malls, enjoying their recall of where enjoyable places of interest are located.  A cognitive trail accentuates that experience.

 

As with all other parent-children activities, the cognitive trail activities needs to be planned for parental comfort as well.

 

A cognitive trail experience can be a nice addition to other simple forms of kid’s soft programming at destination places, together with such activities as “big wheel” or miniature electric jeep races in the plazas, kid’s mazes, as well as scheduled sessions of “Simon says,”  jump rope and hop scotch contests, basketball toss, and the like.

 

Kid’s Car Driving Experience

As part of an overall retail-entertainment destination, Adventure Entertainment has been exploring how simple amusements can be integrated with the retail environment.  Essentially taking cues from Tivoli Gardens (Copenhagen) but integrating more intensely with a retail experience.

 

In this instance, a kid’s car driving experience is in exploration for younger children and their parents.  The youngest of children can be driven by a parent or older sibling.   For this particular activity, the more direct precedent inspiration of the famed Disneyland Autopia ride.   A guide rail placed along the center of the driving path keeps the kid-sized vehicles moving in the proper direction.
