Frequently Asked Questions
Patrons will not be permitted into the planetarium once the seating process is completed. Doors will open 5 minutes before the show time and close 5 minutes after. This is due to the nature of planetarium shows and the need to maintain a dark environment. Patrons that leave the planetarium during a show will not be permitted to return to their seats. If an item needs to be retrieved, please seek out a staff member for assistance.
Out of courtesy for all guests, patrons of the Planetarium must be able to sit appropriately quiet in their own seat for the duration of the show. For safety reasons we do not provide booster seats and ask that guests not stand on the seating. A child is permitted to sit on their parent’s lap to help with this situation so long as the child’s feet are not on a nearby seat.
Yes, the simulators and planetarium often have dramatic changes to lighting or other content which is more likely to trigger seizures due to flashing lights or other causes. When you arrive you can request for our staff to mitigate some of these effects. Though it should be noted that some elements are automated and difficult to eliminate completely.
There are 4 wheelchair spots and 4 adjacent seats located in the planetarium. Please call ahead to reserve one of these seats when completing your ticket purchase. Our software is unable to track this aspect and so our staff will accommodate your needs over the phone or make you aware if seating isn’t available for a particular show.
