About Way Late Play Date

Every few months we open our doors from 6:30 to 10 p.m. to adults-only for a night of science and fun. Each Way Late Play Date has a special theme with cool science activities to take part in. Plus, you’ll have all the floor exhibits to yourself, including the laser game Body Battles in BodyQuest, the Tilt a World in Space Chase and the many levels of the Adventure Tower. All the center’s exhibits are adult-friendly, so if the kids can climb it or slide down it, SO CAN YOU!
