Presentation of the attraction

Discovery Arcade is an attraction located at Disneyland Paris, more precisely in the area of Main Street, U.S.A. It is, in fact, less an attraction in the traditional sense than a true celebration of the spirit of discovery and progress that marked the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Discovery Arcade is not a merry-go-round, but rather a series of galleries that stretch along Main Street, U.S.A. Visitors can wander through this covered gallery and admire a variety of exhibits and displays that showcase important inventions and discoveries of the era, with a particular focus on American innovations.

The arcade is filled with models, artifacts, murals and paintings that illustrate the rapid growth of technology and human progress. It’s a place of particular interest to those interested in history and science, and it’s also a pleasant place to wander around, especially when it’s raining or particularly hot outside.
