“A great experience…one I never thought I would have”
“He didn’t want to stop!”
It's almost time to dive in:SciDive 4D, our new 4D virtual reality experience, officially opens this Saturday, February 29. Transform into a sea turtle and swim along a coral reef! Click the video above to see what riders had to say about the experience.
SciDive's Grand Opening will make a big splash, so plan ahead:
All riders need an arm span of at least 48”.
Limited spots are available to experience SciDive each day.
We HIGHLY recommend making an advance reservation online.
Book a reservation for each rider. (Just 1 per rider per day, please!)
You can also sign up for first-come, first-served spots at the Mill, while available.
This Saturday, February 29, help the Science Mill celebrate 5 amazing years of hands-on science and minds-on discovery. Our resident party animals can’t wait: watch the tortoise hatchlings help spread the word (and steal the show) on We Are Austin TV.
Special activities run from 11am-2pm; the museum will be open 10am-4pm. Come join the fun this Saturday – RSVP on Facebook and invite a friend!
