TULSA, Oklahoma -- Fairgoers can experience "Adventure Base 100" this weekend at the Tulsa State Fair. A traveling, interactive exhibit gives visitors a chance to experience Boy Scouting like never before.

The 10,000 square-foot Adventure Base includes a ropes course, stage show and traveling museum. There is also a multi-sensory experience in an IMAX-like dome that entertains with sights, smells and sounds.

Starting in January at the Tournament of Roses in Pasadena, Calif., and ending in November in New York City, Adventure Base 100 will be rolling into more than 40 markets across the country. It will be at the Tulsa State Fair October 8-10.

"Our goal is to engage those interested in the Boy Scouts of America in a new and exciting way," said Mark Conrad, director of field service, Indian Nations Council, Boy Scouts of America.

"We are thrilled to bring this experience to Tulsa to celebrate our rich 100-year heritage, spark fond memories in former Scouts and alumni, and intrigue those who may be interested in learning more about our organization."

The local Tulsa Council has provided their own artifacts to be featured in the BSA's 100th Anniversary National Time Capsule, which includes submissions from local BSA councils throughout the country.

The Indian Nations Council of Tulsa serves more than 28,000 youth and 5,500 adult volunteers throughout 18 counties in eastern Oklahoma.
