Tips on Making This the BEST DAY EVER!
If our parking lot is full, use the the newly refurbished Candy Cane Park lot just a short walk away. Please do not block lanes, or park in our loading dock area as you will be ticketed or towed. The #15 Heritage bus stops right outside our doors if you would prefer not to park at all. If you're coming with friends, plan to carpool.
Enter through the main Science Centre Entrance not The Kramer IMAX Theatre.
There will be separate lines: those that have pre-purchased tickets, and those without tickets. Follow the signs or ask our staff to make sure you're in the right one. There may be a small wait time during peak hours, but we'll get you inside as quick as we can. Shorten your wait by pre-purchasing tickets!
This is a busy event, so let your kids know that if you get separated, Science Centre Staff and volunteers are the right people to ask for help.
The Kramer IMAX Theatre will be showing Robots 3D all day long. Don’t forget to add a screening to your tickets for only $3!
Relax, have fun, and enjoy all the added activities!
