It was only a matter of time until public transport took to the stars!
The year is 2047 and you are invited to the grand opening of the world’s first municipal space station! Calgary’s public transit system now features direct service via space elevator to the Calgary Municipal Space Station – but what good is a space station unless there is another station to blast-off to? Launch up, have your say on where the next space station should go, and party like it’s 2047! Tickets $24.99 (includes Calgary Tower admission, $18 value)
Open to all ages but recommended for ages 10 and up! TICKETS * This is a one-hour, technological and immersive experience involving virtual reality and hands-on exploration. * Launch times depart in 15 minute intervals, and can hold a maximum of eight people at a time. Created by Humble Wonder , in partnership with Quickdraw Animation Society, the Calgary Municipal Space Station is Beakerhead’s 2017 Big Bang accelerator program recipient.
Lead artists on this project are: Tyler Longmire, Joshua Dalledonne, Lee Cookson, Andrew Shaw, Lara Schmitz and Anton de Groot. Calgary Municipal Space Station is one of 14 sites across Beakerhead Snakes and Ladders; a larger-than-life adventure across multiple engineered experiences and artworks connected by a common theme: the ups and downs of invention. Each site will have a sign and board game tile – where you’ll get to choose your own navigational adventure!
