PEORIA, Ill. -- For some kids, it's not about the basketball games.

It's all about the March Madness Experience.

Rock-wall climbing, shooting through giant basketball hoops, and slam dunking are just a few of the things kids can do.

One group of students actually got out of class early today to go to March Madness.

"It's pretty much a tradition. We do it every year. We get a slip signed and then we can come here whenever we want," said Josh Class, Freshman, Tremont High School.

The March Madness Experience is free for people who have game tickets and $2 for everyone else.
