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 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.

We went wishing to see stars and planets. We saw a long not special movie on the Mayan prophecy and an annoying noisy movie with special effects.

If you are looking for interesting things to do in Arlington and have run out of stadium tours try something a little different. The planetarium is run by the college and not only does shows but an instructor speaks to the audience and gives you a little learning along with the show. There is also a roller coaster simulation they... More
