Cosmic Playground Experience

Cosmic Playground Experience

History/Science
Arizona Science Center will inspire and delight creators, climbers and space-lovers of all ages with the opening of the Cosmic Playground experience. Starting October 6, 2018, guests can climb, slide, and explore the galaxy in a unique all-ages play space made almost entirely of household packing tape, and participate in an array of space-themed activities while immersed in cosmic light, sound and motion. This unique space-inspired, crawlable community art installation will feature three distinct space-inspired play structures, or TapeScapes. Visitors to Cosmic Playground can climb a tunnel of stars, slide into a wormhole, and travel through a black hole—all artfully made from packing tape. Explorers can spin like planets in SPUN chairs, bounce across Mars on Space Hopper bouncing balls, let loose in the Milky Way Ball Pit or take an Astronaut Selfie. While on their space-themed journey, guests can leap from planet to planet across our solar system and participate in daily activities and demos in the Aspiring Astronaut Station led by Arizona Science Center’s Blue Crew team of science interpreters. Cosmic Playground is a shoe-free environment. Guests must wear clean socks or purchase a pair at the Center for $1 (while supplies last). The experience is ADA accessible.
