Space After Dark FAQ

How long does the second day “tour” take?
The tram tour, which takes you to Johnson Space Center, takes approximately 90 minutes to complete. Time spent inside Space Center Houston depends on whether your group views any large-screen films and/or live shows. 3-5 hours is usually sufficient, however, we invite you to stay as long as you like!

Can we eat “sack lunches” inside Space Center Houston?
Outside food is only allowed inside the center on the first day of your visit if the food provided (Chicken strip dinner) does not meet your dietary requirements. We do have a covered picnic park area that can be used for eating your lunches. Any food you bring should be stored on your buses until it is time to eat.

Will my group have a tour guide?
On the evening of your event, larger groups will be broken up into groups with no more than 30 students. These groups will each have an instructor to guide them through their activities that evening after dinner. The tram tour is the only part of your second day that will be guided. Touring inside the center is completely self-guided.

Can I make reservations for a specific tram time?
All groups that have attended the Space Adventure Night will experience the tram tour on the second day visit at 9:00 a.m. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes. If you would like to do all of your activities on the day of your event we will not be able to book a private tram tour for your group. If you would like to experience the tram tour, you will need to take the tram tour with the public and be subject to tram lines and times.

Do I need to make the hotel arrangements?
If we are making your hotel arrangements we book based on the amount of rooms you have requested. If you do not request arrangements to be made, then you are responsible for all arrangements.

Is the Neutral Buoyancy Lab located at Space Center Houston?
The Neutral Buoyancy Lab is not located at Space Center Houston. You will be responsible for providing transportation to and from the NBL. Click here on more information on the NBL.



When do we know what hotel we will be staying at?
As soon as your hotel registration has been received, we will put in a reservation request with a hotel. Because it will take longer to process the hotel information, you will receive a separate confirmation with information about the hotel that has been booked for your group.

Do you provide breakfast for our group?
We do not provide breakfast. You may contact your hotel to determine if breakfast arrangements are offered.
