Firstly, the parking, now reduced to $5 from $10, was not working and charged me twice. It will take 20 days to get back the $5. More importantly, the price is high for admission for what you get. I recall exhibits at other cities that...More

This is a wonderful, interactive science centre. We had lots of kids with us and they had an amazing time. There are lots of stem challenges and opportunities for hands-on learning. I would definitely come back!

We went for the November Adults Only Night. Lots of people there and lots of activities. Went just the two of us and was still fun but would recommend going with a bigger group. Worth checking out.

We were traveling with my 21 month old grand-daughter and there were enough engaging activities in this one small area to keep us all busy for several hours. The highlight though might have been the performance stage where children danced and performed in the spotlight.

Went to Telus Spark as we've always been interested. What a waste of time and money. Poor exhibits with little to keep interest. I could see kids interested a bit more, which is why I gave 2 instead of a 1. For adults, it took...More
