Special Information
The 26-foot-tall Thinga-Ma-Greeter, an interactive, kinetic tower designed by eight designers from Nike, serves as a playful way to welcome visitors and stimulate the imaginations of arriving children as they discover that with a turn of any of the three wheels they can move an element of the tower far above them. It was officially unveiled on March 11, 2003.
