The Adventure Science Center was fun to wander around with friends. However, it is geared toward children, so much of the content is simplified or there is too little explanation. It was a quite fun, however, and the experience was worth the price.

Overall the ASC was really fun. When we visited they offered a Rubix cube display- which my son really enjoyed! I liked the space section with a display where you are clipped into a cable and could feel what limited gravity felt like. Pretty neat....More

Response from adventuresci | Property representative |
On average, guests spend about 2 to 3 hours at the science center. Those who see a planetarium show generally stay closer to 3 hours.
