Arizona Science Center, Phoenix Reviews
The mirror maze was so fun to walk inside again and again. Unlimited experience with one ticket. The lady at the admission desk was so very nice. The 3D movie was also very good. Unfortunately, I was allergic to the moldy air on the fourth floor. Remember to park in the Heritage and Science Park Garage. The information zone will validate the parking for you and it's much cheaper.
It was just so-so, but not worth what they charge to see everything. Price of admission is $18.00 which would be reasonable, except that does not really get you into anything. That just lets you walk around and look at the displays, which are not that great. If you want to go to the Planetarium or any of the other exhibits, they charge for every single one. So, if you want to see everything, expect to drop about $50.00 or more per person. I went during the Mirror Maze exhibition. Let me save you some money. If you have ever been to the house of mirrors at a carnival, you have seen it, so don't waste your money. The fact that they charge extra for this is a ripoff. Be sure to validate your parking if you do go or expect to pay even more on your way out. This is an over-priced experience that will leave you feeling like you were ripped off in my opinion.
I went to the AZ Science Center for their Pompeii exhibit and Super Volcano show in the planetarium. It was all very neat. The staff was friendly and helpful, the facility was clean, we parked in the garage right by the center so it wasn't a long walk. There's a cool area with some interactive water feature for kids (made me want to be a kid again, looked very fun). I will definitely go back for other exhibits. I could see being able to spend a day here w/ kids and keeping them fully entertained all day.
Took my mother here for her birthday to see the Pompeii exhibit. It was amazing. The people who worked here were all super nice. Even after we left and found put my mom lost her key fob. They were all super helpful and let me retrace my steps until I found it. Can't wait to go back to see more. Also, big thank you to the people running the Pompeii exhibit and the info desk for being a big help and being awesome about it.
We actually went for the planetarium, because my daughter really likes the planets. But, of course, u can't just get into the planetarium, they make u buy a general admission ticket, which was $36 for wife & I. Then the planetarium runs u another $18. Plus $12 for parking (apparently they validate and u get 50% off, unfortunately no one bothered to tell me about this). Add a $40 stop in the gift shop and it's a $100 afternoon. And the planetarium show we saw, Ice Worlds, was really disappointing. After listening to Jason, or Steve, or Cooper blather on for 15 minutes, they finally got to the show. You only see a glimpse of the planets for a few minutes and the movie itself was only about 15-20 minutes and then another 10 minutes of some roller coaster effects. And I was surprised how poor quality the video was. I was expecting alot more, especially for the $$$ admission cost. There were a couple of decent kids displays and my daughter enjoyed moving from room to room to play. But for toddlers there was only a couple of age appropriate exhibits. It's really geared more towards older kids. Also a little surprised for a science center there was no dinosaur exhibit. In fact, there isn't a planetary exhibit either, also strange given that they have the planetarium in there. Overall, we were unimpressed and for the amount of $$$ spent, definitely aren't planning to return.
