It was only a matter of time until public transport took to the stars!

The year is 2047 and you are invited to the grand opening of the world’s first municipal space station! 
Calgary’s public transit system now features direct service to space – and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know that one space station is useless unless there’s a network of other space stations to reach.

Participate in an interplanetary artwork, and party like it’s 2047! Ground training and launch included.

Open to all ages but recommended for ages 10 and up!

———

* This is a one-hour, technological and immersive experience involving virtual reality and hands-on exploration.

* Ticket price includes Calgary Tower admission ($18 value).

* Each launch (scheduled in 15 minute intervals) can hold a maximum of eight people at a time. When you purchase a ticket to book a time, you may be grouped with other citizen cosmonauts like yourself!

* We welcome patrons of all abilities; however, those with limited mobility may have a modified experience as the secondary observation deck is only accessible by stairs. Please contact Lara at lara@humblewonder.com for more specific details.

Created by Humble Wonder, led by Lee Cookson, Joshua Dalledonne, Tyler Longmire, Anton de Groot, Lara Schmitz and Andrew Shaw, in partnership with Quickdraw Animation Society.
