DO AND SEE
Eagle Zip Adventure at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
A new tandem zipline experience has taken flight at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The Eagle Zip Adventure spans more than 700 feet and riders reach speeds of 35 miles per hour as they cross the Zoo's Waterfowl Lake. The zipline tower stands at 150 feet and provides groups with unparalleled views of the Cleveland skyline before embarking on a thrilling ride.
Cleveland Museum of Art
A first-of-its-kind exhibition, Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia's Sacred Mountain transports groups to the floodplains of southern Cambodia to tell the story of a newly restored sculpture that spans 1,500 years and three continents. Running November 14, 2021 - January 30, 2022, the exhibition features two sculpture galleries and four digital experiences, including a full surround, mixed-reality tour that brings groups to the sculpture's original cave temple and an immersive film narrated by Angelina Jolie and Cleveland author Loung Ung. The eight monumental stone sculptures of Hindu deities from Phnom Da will be seen together for the first time through interactive, life-size 3D models.
Cleveland History Center
Groups visiting the Cleveland History Center will be fascinated by the fashion and life of Amanda Wicker in Amanda Wicker: Black Fashion Design in Cleveland. Establishing herself as the preeminent fashion teacher and mentor in the predominantly African American Fairfax neighborhood, the exhibit—on display through the end of 2021—showcases the designer's more than six-decade career from the opening of the Clarke School of Dressmaking and Design to roles with the National Urban League, the United Negro College Fund and the NAACP.
Playhouse Square Broadway Series
The 2021/2022 KeyBank Broadway Series kicks off this fall and includes The Prom, Pretty Woman: The Musical, To Kill a Mockingbird, Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations and Disney's Frozen.
TASTE AND SMELL
Haunted House Restaurant
The aroma of freshly popped popcorn, a box office-style host stand and servers dressed in theater usher uniforms welcome guests to the Haunted House Restaurant, a new eatery inspired by classic horror films. Darnell "SuperChef" Ferguson helped create a menu of urban eclectic American dishes, including a "brinner" menu with breakfast-for-dinner-style plates.
1330 on the River & Compass Lounge
With a prime riverside patio, 1330 on the River features scenic views of the Cuyahoga River, along with fresh fare and craft cocktails. Groups can head downstairs to Compass Lounge cocktail bar to enjoy signature drinks and high-end spirits served along the river's edge.
