Enjoy a super-budget-friendly afternoon at the Kansas Cosmosphere Rocktoberfest in Hutch. Saturday, October 23, 2010 from 1-4 p.m. the lobby will be open with tons of fun and very inexpensive activities for the family.
There’s no admission for the event itself, which will include “weird science” demonstrations throughout the afternoon, and space- or alien-themed costume contests for kids and for adults (did anyone buy that Spock shirt I mentioned a couple weeks ago?). To enter the contest, register by 2 p.m. The judging will begin at 2:30.
Kids can also participate in 7 different activities with the purchase of a ticket strip for only $1 (one dollar for seven tickets!). They can choose to do seven different things, or one activity seven times, or any combination they like:
- Make a button
- Make a solar system bracelet
- Make a Christmas ornament
- Coloring activity
- Liquid Oxygen ice cream
- Launch an air rocket
- Temporary tattoos
You can also have their pictures taken in a space suit for only $2, or experience a 4-G simulator for only $4.
Admission into Rocketoberfest doesn’t include admission to the museum, but this might be a great day to use your Groupons if you bought them.
