Educational Opportunities in the Park:

Drug Awareness & Self-Esteem Magic Show

For 33 years, Dinky Gowen has brought his educational magic shows to schools throughout Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana. The “Magic of Being YOU” mesmerizes students while providing a strong message on the important issues of drug awareness and self-esteem. The magical illusions capture and hold the students’ attention and before they know it, they are learning some of life’s most important lessons – the three A’s – attendance, attitude and achievement.

Educational Guides

Beech Bend has developed a Science Day program that provides a teacher’s manual and student lesson plan for many amusement park-related science questions. A teacher’s manual and student lesson plan is available by request, at no cost to schools visiting Beech Bend. Or you can be creative and create your own plan – many kindergarten and first grade classes have brought their “Letter People” or “Flat Stanleys” with them to Beech Bend! Call 270-781-7634 for more information about the educational guides.
