A Whole New World of Play

Closed for upgrades Monday, September 20 through Thursday, September 24. We apologize for any inconvenience.

A new, fully-immersive multiple-story play experience is open. Designed for a younger generation of space explorers ages 2 – 12, Planet Play is an indoor interactive area where children play on the planets. Numerous interactive gaming and artistic components are designed to create a memorable learning experience including opportunities to map a constellation, climb a wormhole, walk on Saturn’s rings, and slide through an asteroid field. While kids play and learn, parents can enjoy a coffee, wine and beer bar in a comfortable lounge while watching their tiny explorers learn about space.

Children must be supervised by a parent or adult at all times in the play area.
