Where are we going today?

Where to start!  Are you ready for the plethora of activities to keep you entertained!? 

Let's start with the Laser Tag Arena!  Here, you get to strap on your combat gear and make your way around a 5,000 square foot arena - which is the only arena of it's kind in New Hampshire!

Surround sound, cool fog and special effects will envelope you as you work with your team to try and defeat the opponents.  Don't forget those stealth moves - they will be needed, comrades!

You can take a spin and test your navigational skills in the very fun and bumpy bumper cars - just try not to be hit!

You can experience up to 2Gs of acceleration in the Mad Wave Motion Theater - where you can feel the vibrations of the car shifting gears, to the collision! (Not a real one, of course!) - you will just use high-tech actuators to allow you to sense it!

Get your socks knocked off with the Coaster Rider Express, which features 6 roller coaster rides from around the world that you can try out!  Woooooah! 

For those a little more adventurous, you can revolve and dip into space in the Himalaya roller coaster - where you will go forwards...and backwards!  Unless you prefer the Cosmic Playground where you move through a maze of capsules, pods and tunnels!

Why not join the Space Train Ride and mission control, or ride on the comet carousel?

For those wanting a more classically fun experience, they have billiards, ping pong and air hockey to keep you entertained!  

And of course - if you want to come back for your special day, they will happily put on a birthday party for you! There are a number of birthday party packages to choose from.

Phew!  We broke a sweat just thinking about all of that!

    I've been coming to Space Center for the last ~15 years or so, with the most recent visit around 4 years ago. The last time I went I had a good time and was excited to finally be living in the area again to conveniently go. I went last night with my husband and when we walked in we were a little bummed to see that you can no longer trade in bills for quarters and had to use a card system instead. We figured it probably was easier than carrying around a cup full of coins but then were again a little bummed to find out that the cards keep track of...Read More

    Everyone that thinks this place isn't fun is clueless. Space Center has been fun since the moment I walked through the doors 10 or so years ago. I come here about once a month. Its awesome

    I brought my 9 year old son to the space center for his birthday hoping we would have a great time together. Needless to say the space center did not come close to reaching my expectations. Everything was way overpriced, and there was extra charges added for everything. The food was decent but could have been better. It seemed as though half the games in the whole place were out of order and the staff was just rood. Any time I tried to ask an employee a question it seemed as though no one knew anything about anything. I do not recommend coming here...Read More

    As an avid gamer (Age 23) I love this place and come here regularly.

    If you want to play Lazer Tag, they can run a game EVERY 45 MINUTES, even if you just walk in the door. Their arena is the best I've seen in the area, with 2 full floors of play, and plenty of fog to see the lasers going past you in the arena. At just 16 buck for a 45 minute game session, its much more entertaining and interactive than a movie.

    Their food is relatively inexpensive, and surprisingly delicious. Each time i come in with my friends after a tiring week of classes,...Read More

    There are not many options for kid's parties in this area, so despite the fact that we though it looked dated and sort of pieced together, we scheduled our son's party here. The positives: the party host was great and the laser tag part of the Space Center is nice. However, they grossly overcharge you for things that should be included in the party package. Our party quickly doubled in price due to the fact that we had to pay for every little thing despite the fact that it was listed as included. They do not use a computer or register to ring...Read More

I went last night with my husband and when we walked in we were a little bummed to see that you can no longer trade in bills for quarters and had to use a card system instead. We figured it probably was easier than carrying around a cup full of coins but then were again a little bummed to find out that the cards keep track of your tickets, you don't get a bunch of them pouring out of a game. It felt like it wasn't the arcade experience that we have had in the past and enjoyed but we decided to try some games anyway. Half of the ones we tried to play either straight out took our money or stopped working midway through a game. The staff seemed a little uninterested (I can't blame them... the place was dead) so we didn't bother going up to wait around for just a few dollars back. After we figured out what games wouldn't just take out money we played those until the money on our cards ran out. I'm sure that switching over these games to a card system wasn't cheap but why wouldn't they just spend their money on fixing their games or buying new ones? Unfortunately we won't be back.

I do not recommend coming here for any reason except laser tag (as terrible as my experience was the laser tag was actually decent). If you are having a birthday party or just looking to have fun with your child there are much better places you could go to.

At just 16 buck for a 45 minute game session, its much more entertaining and interactive than a movie.

Their food is relatively inexpensive, and surprisingly delicious. Each time i come in with my friends after a tiring week of classes, we ask the cooks for a specialty pizza we haven't tried before. From the 3 little pigs, to a creamy chicken broccoli alfredo pizza, to their "Mumbo Italiano", and Chicken Bacon ranch pizza, there is always something to fill us up as we spend a couple hours kicking back and relaxing.

They also have awesome burgers, their 50/50 burger is a huge half bacon burger that just a couple bites will leave you feeling incredibly full. They also have a wide selection of bottled beer, including seasonal sam adams, so in the fall I can have my Octoberfest with a pretzel in between a game of laser tag and a game of pac man, and before catching the Patriots game on their TVs in the lounge area.

They have over 100 arcade games there, and each time I'm in it seems like they've gotten a new one in. Most of the games are ticket games, and I've been able to win even large stuffed animals in a single night off of just $20 in tokens.

The staff is super friendly, able to help me with any problem I have.Whenever I have a problem with a game its solved in less than a minute. When I've been to parties for my cousins the Party Hosts have been extremely friendly and helpful, able to accommodate those with severe allergies, odd theme birthday parties, or any other needs we had as a party.

All and All I would give this place 5 stars, as it is one of those places that just keeps getting better each time I go back.

Our party quickly doubled in price due to the fact that we had to pay for every little thing despite the fact that it was listed as included. They do not use a computer or register to ring things up, but they write everything in scribbles on a piece of paper, excluding prices, then just add it up. We ended up being over-charged and having to dispute it later. Everything is so expensive, that our kids ended up getting bored fast because the package only covered the very minimum, and we had the premium Jupiter package!! We think our money would have been better spent somewhere else where the kids would be occupied and the venue wasn't nickeling and diming us to death.
