“Makes space easier to understand, and fun!”
Reviewed 26 April 2011

The park at this attraction is great, and the scale model of our solar system is just what every child needs to understand how the parts relates to each other, and particularly how far apart the different planets are. Bring some friends and try the Human Orrery- they really really need to get this onto YouTube. I mean WHAT could be more fun that playing the part of a planet and orbiting with your friends?
