Planet Explorers

Blast off to Planet X with your littlest explorers!

Included With General Admission

Families with children ages 3–8 to take the helm in this modern-day space adventure. Junior space explorers will enter a world where they can climb, crawl, play, and learn what it takes to be part of a mission to outer space.

The adventure begins here on Earth, in an unassuming backyard with the night sky overhead. What you learn there will prepare you for your mission! Kids can work the controls in a two-story rocket, visit the Space Station to see how familiar things work differently in space, take a stroll through the unknown in the Planet Explorers Spacewalk Experience, and search for signs of life on the surface of Planet X.
