You may know the human body is 75 percent water, but did you know we blink more than 27,000 times each day? Or that the average cough comes out of your mouth at 60 miles per hour?
The MEGA Body teaches visitors of all ages fun facts while exploring and interacting with giant teeth, eyes, brain, heart, lungs, ears, esophagus, bones, stomach, muscle, intestines and skin. Measuring 50-feet long by 15-feet wide and 12-feet high, MEGA Body also shows the risks, symptoms and causes of various diseases.
