“Take a ride down the colorectal slide!” enthuses Nashville’s gateway to the sciences. If a colonoscopy thrill-ride isn’t your bag, dogfight foes in a flight simulator, explore the 15,000-square-foot Space Chase, scale the Adventure Tower, and take in a laser show at the Sudekum Planetarium. Watch for the popular Way Late Play Dates for grown-ups that promote a different kind of chemistry. Open daily 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; admission starts at $13 adults, $11 ages 2-12.
