Feel the Wheels | St. Augustine Outlets

Ever wondered how a bulldozer works? Or what the inside of a helicopter looks like? Or how a policeman turns on his sirens? Feel the Wheels is the event for you!

In 2012, the League in partnership with tag! Children’s Museum of St. Augustine began the interactive event Feel the Wheels. In the spirit of play-based learning, the league provides trucks, buses, race cars, tractors, boats and even a helicopter for kids of all ages to explore! Vehicles vary year from to year but the fun never stops. General admission is $5 and FREE for children 2 years and under. Bring the kids to climb into the driver’s seat, honk the horn, and sound the alarm!
