So the word on the street is this a great date night idea and good for smaller groups. Bring a jacket and show up early (6:00pm). Parking is $15 and it’s recommended to pay when entering so you can avoid the line when leaving. This place has multiple bars ($10-12 for cocktails, $6-7 for beer) that only takes cash. Also the Rainforest exhibit closes first at 7:30pm so if you want to see it, see it first. Secondly the planetarium fills up fast and its first come first serve. It’s recommended that you have a plan of what you want to do and when to do it before arriving. It does get quite crowded so getting there early is a must.
