Overall, a very good experience. Our two granddaughters... 8 & 10 enjoyed themselves for 6 hours considering the Planetarium and lunch. Admission of $15 each for adults and $12 each for kids was "ok"... but then add $8 for parking; and extra cost for the planetarium, imax, body, lunch, etc... and it quickly adds up. Our two especially enjoyed the outside water attractions; the force of nature; and role playing in the bank. I thought the brain section was engaging. They have some areas that need attention: 1 - re-engineer the admission line. It wasn't that long (30 people) and it took almost 30 minutes to get in... should have been 10 or less; 2 - the café "yells out" your order number when ready... "quite obnoxious" in such a small concrete room; 3 - parking tickets in the adjoining parking ramp need validation for the Science Center discount. That's great, except the discount is only good for 4 hours.... from our experience (6 hours 19 minutes) and most of the reviewers (5+ hours)... 4 hours doesn't seem right. All in all... a very nice place to take 5-10 year olds for a half day, especially during the heat of the summer in Phoenix.
