    Can't wait to come again!
    Samantha_K, Sept 2023
    This was an absolutely incredible experience and I will 100% be back to do this again next time I'm in the area. I loved the passion that came through from the astrophysicist. It was great to be able to ask questions and look through the telescope. Also I was obsessed with the hot chocolate that was VEGAN which is always a plus for me. My only small complaint was that me and a few others were late due to confusion on where to meet but other than that it was amazing. Thank you guys so much !!!
    Excellent experience

    I loved the hot chocolate and warm blankets. We also saw some cool satellites and galaxies. The guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
