Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer programs for birthday parties?

YES!  We have been offering some of the most memorable birthday parties for over 25 years.  Unfortunately we don’t have the ability to host cake, ice cream, and presents.  Though there are some nice picnic tables at the North end of the building many groups use.

Can adult groups come?

We have no upper age limit for our group missions and we frequently cater to our more seasoned fans.  High school dance groups, surprises for your sci-fi significant other, business training & team building, or just about whatever other excuse you can come up with as an adult works for us.  You aren’t the only adult who has wanted to come.

Why is the age requirement for missions 10 years old?

Our simulators offer a heart pounding and exciting experience that can some times be overwhelming for younger patrons.  The controls for the simulator can also be too complex for them to grasp in the limited time they have to learn them. We want all who participate to get the full experience and make sure you are getting your money’s worth.  We recognize that some 5th graders are 9 years old and they are an exception.  Please be responsible and do not bring anyone under 9!  Like a rollercoaster height limit, there is a reason we do things this way.

When can corporate groups attend?

Corporate groups can attend during any of our standard group flight times.  You can also schedule to attend during the day on many Mondays during the school year.  Simply email us [email protected] to check on availability and to get more details.

Can parents stay during the flight?

We invite parents to stay and observe the mission from our control room security cameras or even be a part of the crew, but you are not required to remain with the group.  We do ask that you be prompt when picking your group after the flight.

What is the difference between the ships?

There are two main differences: one is the size of the crew each ship can handle and the other is the type of missions they run (deep space, stealth, special operations, etc.).  Many crews select a favorite ship because they were on it for a field trip or previous experience. 

Price Comparison

We feel we are one of the best values you can get in both quality and price.  Below is a quick comparison of other popular activities in the area.

  • CMSEC – 2.5 hours – Average of $12.26 per person
  • Laser Tag – 1 hour – $9.50 per person
  • Skating Rink – Unlimited – $6 per person + rental
  • Bowling – 2 hours – $13 per person
  • Indoor Paintball – 300 shots – $30 per person
  • Movie – 2 hours – $6.50 per person (Appropriate content not guaranteed)

What's the difference between a 2.5 and 5 hour mission?

In a 5 hour experience there are more opportunities for interactions with actors, away missions, greater story depth, and a more full sense of immersion into the experience (forgetting you are in a simulator).  Some crews feel like they were just getting the hang of things by the time the 2.5 hour mission ends.  The more time our flight directors have, the more opportunities to create an amazing experience with many memorable moments.

Can we bring more than the crew limit?

All of our crew sizes are based on the positions that are used to operate the ship.  Some times ships can operate with less crew if they are more experienced or older, but we don’t operate with additional crew members.

Do I need to have a parent waiver signed by all who attend?

No. Participants aren’t put into potentially harmful situations and so a health waver is not required.  We do ask that you inform us of any known health conditions that might be affected by flashing lights or loud sounds.

What if someone can't come at the last minute?

If you have less crew than the ship recommendations give that is ok.  We have experience running with one less crew member.  We do recommend you try to get within your ships recommended numbers and encourage parents to fill in the gaps.  It is a great experience to share with your children, even if they are too cool for you normally.

Are you the space center located in a school?

Yes, we are located inside of Central Elementary in Pleasant Grove, Utah.  We operate all year round as a program supported by Alpine School District.

How can we get involved as a volunteer?

We greatly appreciate the help of our large group of student and adult volunteers.  More information can be found by visiting our Volunteer Page.
