Dynacraft Launches "Experiments in Fun" Series with a Car-less Ride-in Theater...Written by James Zahn
Now this is cool. A lot of you know how big both movies and rides (cars/bicycles/powered ride-ons/scooters/etc) are here at Rock Father HQ, and when you combine the two into a fun night outside for families, I'm totally on-board with that. Last weekend, the folks at Dynacraft launched their Experiments in Fun series with a "Ride-in Theater" in Atlanta's Piedmont Park. They transformed the park into a car-less drive-in theater, complete with a 40-foot screen, where families could try out the latest bikes, scooters and ride-ons - the first part of a movement to invite families to "rethink what's possible with their favorite wheels." Take a peek at the highlight video below...
