Explore The Lost Planet

Journey to another dimension, where dinosaurs rule The Lost Planet.

Exploration is everything In The Lost Planet! Visitors are encouraged to discover fun facts about the universe as they step into The Lost Planet and morph into space explorers! Encouraging learning through play, explorers will discover interesting facts about our solar system within the activity zone to complete their mission.

The adventure begins at the base of the giant rocket on the launchpad. To get to the top, explorers can make their way up through the launch gantry or climb through the spider tower webbing inside the rocket. From there they can make their way through the tunnels and zip back down to earth via the spiral slide.

The Lost Planet is also available for group visits and school trips.

Last admission for The Lost Planet is 1.5 hours before closing.
