Is the show suitable for guests who are prone to seizures or motion sickness?

There are no strobe lights used in the production but there are some fast image and light transitions, so we would advise caution for those who suffer from seizures. Equally, while the vast majority of our patrons have an amazing time with no issues, a small minority who are very susceptible to motion sickness find immersive entertainment slightly uncomfortable, so we would advise caution if you fall into this camp.

Is the show suitable for autistic people?

We have found that autistic people LOVE our shows! Please note the venue is dark and there is surround sound. We advise sitting at the end of a row if you think a quick exit might be required. Our on-site staff will assist if you alert them at check-in.

Venue Information

Cleveland Science Center

Great Lakes Science Center

The Great Lakes Science Center opened in July of 1996 in the North Coast Harbor district of Cleveland's lakefront. The center grew out of a mid-1980s proposal to establish a Great Lakes maritime museum on the lakefront, a plan spearheaded initially by the Great Lakes Historical Society and several faculty members of CLEVELAND STATE UNIVERSITY.

By 1990, when a planning board was organized, the project had taken on the more ambitious form of a $55 million interactive education center dedicated to "the environment, science, and technology of the Great Lakes Region."

The building itself was designed by Boston museum architect E. Verner Johnson. Upon opening, the center featured roughly 350 science exhibits and activities organized into three floors, each dedicated to one of its educational themes (environment, science and technology), as well as an Omnimax wide-screen movie theatre.

Cleveland Clinic Dome Theater

Great Lakes Science Center is home to the newly remodeled Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater.

Experience movie magic under a giant domed screen that soars six stories high and surrounds you with breathtaking, multi-story images and 11,600 watts of ultra-real digital sound, creating a movie-going experience like no other.

The theater now features the world’s first giant dome three-projector, laser-illuminated projection system.

Accessible seating is available. Please contact the box office for further information.
