Prepared to be transported inside a special spacecraft to the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) to view the stars in the night sky, before lifting off into space to visit the Earth, Moon, Sun and all the planets of the Solar System.
Unlike traditional planetarium shows the soundtrack takes the lead role. Each of the objects in space are represented with sounds as well as being presented with the incredible visuals. This means that this show is an immersive experience that can be enjoyed irrespective of level of vision.
Recommended ages 7+. Under-5s will not be admitted – Ted's Space Adventure is suitable for younger children.
