What is a Cosmic Playground?

The Cosmic Playground is a new play space at the Arizona Science Center. Guests can crawl, play and jump through three space-inspired play structures made of packing tape. It also features an array of cosmic lights and sounds. The play space includes three SPUN spinning chairs, a Milky Way ball pit, and more. Guests can even pose for photos on the SPUN chairs or in the Milky Way.

The Cosmic Playground will also feature daily activities and demos. For example, the Arizona Science Center Blue Crew team will staff the Aspiring Astronaut Station, where participants can learn about space-related concepts. Visitors should wear clean socks or shoes to explore the Playground. If they don’t have any, they can buy a pair of shoes for $1 while supplies last.
