we did not realize the experience was 1 hour from where we were staying in Virgin, our fault. it was part of a resort scenario, including families. a little toned down for us but still informative. unable to see the milky way due to some clouds and bright moon. enjoyed relaxing, viewing the stars, some constellations and space crafts

The parking area was a little hard to find at night for star gazing. It wasn’t a clear night but we were able to see stars. The guide was nice and told stories about the constellations he pointed out. Blankets and hot chocolate were provided but no telescope since he said it wouldn’t do much. He did give us the opportunity when we checked in to reschedule but we were on a tight schedule. All in all it was a good experience.

The guides were friendly, well informed, and entertaining! We had mild cloud cover during our event but we’re still able to see an amazing array of stars, satellites, and shooting stars! I learned a lot from their commentary, and enjoyed the friendly banter between guides.l and audience. They provide you with blankets to lay on, but I’d also recommend (as they d) bu doing up for the event if you go in early April like I did, because it got pretty cold out. They provided hot chocolate, tea, and hot apple cider to help battle the cold!
