The Arizona Science Center is introducing a new, space-themed play area called the Cosmic Playground. The interactive playground features three unique play structures, made of household packing tape. Visitors can spin in SPUN chairs, bounce on Mars, and enjoy the Milky Way Ball Pit. Guests can also participate in activities at the Center’s Aspiring Astronaut Station.
Besides the play area, the Cosmic Playground also hosts demonstrations and daily activities. During the day, an Arizona Science Center Blue Crew team will staff the Aspiring Astronaut Station, which will bring various space-related concepts to life. Guests are encouraged to wear clean shoes to enter the playground. If they don’t have any, they can purchase shoes at the Center for $1. The Cosmic Playground is ADA-accessible and open to everyone, including people with disabilities.
