Looking for the perfect indoor activity to beat the heat or to stay dry on a rainy day? Look no further! The Orlando Science Center has spent over 50 years creating fun, interactive, educational activities the whole family can enjoy. The Science Center features four floors of exciting exhibits, along with giant screen movies and live programming. The exhibits include Science On a Sphere, Kids Town, Dr. Dare’s Lab, Nature Works, the new Frogs exhibit, and many more!
Premiering June 19th on the giant screen will be the new “Ultimate Wave: Tahiti” – a documentary film featuring nine-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater. Viewers will get to see first-hand how waves are formed, as well as the cultural aspects of waves and wave making, plus the history of surfers in Tahiti. Currently playing are films “Sharks” and “Amazon.” These educational films are awesome to see on the 8,000 square foot giant screen!
Brought back by popular demand are the full-color Rock ‘n Roll laser light shows. They will run every Saturday night through August 21st. There are kid-friendly shows, as well as a new 1980s show, which includes music by Michael Jackson, Guns N’ Roses and U2. Don’t miss the Classic Rock a GoGo which includes classic rock music from Bob Seger and The Doors. At 9pm, the feature is The Beatles, and at 10pm, Pink Floyd. (June 19th there will only be the 10pm show due to the premiere of “Ultimate Wave: Tahiti.”) You will not want to miss this sensory experience of bright lights, intense graphics, and great music!
This indoor attraction combines fun and knowledge under one roof and is approximately 12 miles from the Orlando tourist area. Check the Orlando Science Center website for show times and pricing. Even if you’re not trying to beat the heat or find an indoor activity, you will not want to miss these waves and laser lights!
