What IS lightning?!

Every second around the world, there are a hundred lightning strikes, putting out a heat five times hotter than the surface of the sun! It has inspired myths and legends for as long as humans have looked up at the sky, and scientific study of lightning and electricity has led to countless discoveries and technologies that have changed our lives.

Join us for a show that explores what we know – and what we don't – about this spectacular force of nature. Featuring high-voltage demonstrations, we'll take you deep inside a storm cloud and find out what happens when lightning strikes.

Due to the awesome sparks and noise of our high voltage demonstrations, the Lightning Room is not recommended for young children and babies.

Suitable for ages 6 and up.
