I have only gone to two planetariums in my life - both were situated on a school campus (one in Ohio and now one in Texas.) I found it to be a good value for what we saw. The 360 Rollercoaster on each of the planets was a lot of fun - I actually got motion sickness like I was... More

Firstly this is ONLY a theater, so it is not to be confused with a Planetarium museum kind of thing. It is in the science department at the university, and we parked about 200 yards away (just before the parking garage) on the street at no cost as it was a Saturday. Make sure when going with kids you get... More

This place is great! Fun shows in a nice theater. The Spacepark 360 is fun - ride roller coasters on each planet. Can't wait to try the rest. And i will since it's so affordable - $20 for 2 kids and 2 adults.

This is one of the nicest planetariums we've ever been to with an amazing picture, comfy seats, and great air conditioning (which is important in Texas). My kids love star gazing and finding the constellations. Great summer entertainment.

We took our teens to the Spacepark 360 show yesterday as our son LOVES astronomy and just got his first "real" telescope. The first half of the show was very informative as the narrator pointed out where the planets and stars can be found in our (local) night sky. The second half was the Spacepark 360 show which takes the... More

The narrator of the shows is very knowledgeable in regards to space. If you love astronomy you will learn facts and see things in the night sky you have never seen. Only $6 for adults. Entire show last about an hour. Great experience for field trips, groups, dates or families.

Wow. I am very rarely so unimpressed with a place. The program was very elementary. We were bored to tears. Go to the planetarium in Fort Worth instead. LOVE UTA just not their planetarium.
