  • It was something new. ... We had a nice long tour. ... very informative but not very interesting for me. ... I had a nice time seeing the place and getting the sum of it. ... love the scenic views of the mountain with a nice fall/autumn weather was great. ... The place was cleans,lots of attendants around and lots of restroom. ... the cafe was small and limited items but enough. ... The architecture was amazing . ... Plus the huge machinery to sustain it was impressive. ... A expensive buildings. ... It needs more entertainment or interactive things to do. ... Once is enough to visit it. ... We had a good time touring the place. ...
  • We took the tour, definitely very interesting. I would say you need to be entertained by science. This is not a thrill seeker adventure or some crazy active party environment. But there are some things you will see there that you won't see anywhere else on earth. For those interested in science and wanting to get a look to the future of science and our planet, this is a great trip. Not to mention great views of the desert mountains and valley.
  • An incredible experience. Mind-blowing biology and engineering aspects kept my family captivated. So worth the 2 hour trip to get there. Selina was a terrific guide and made sure everyone was understanding the process. I recommend this for 9th graders to adults (or really smart middle schoolers). It is a working facility so there is a lot of ground to cover (about three hours). There are lots of steps, hills, uneven terrain, etc. so I do NOT recommend it for anyone who has difficulty with walking or standing (although I was able to do it using a cane). This is a must see!
  • One of the coolest guided tours I've done. The engineering accomplishments you see here are incredible. You don't realize how impressive and complex it is until you walk through it.
  • We came here with our two year old and he had a good time. All the employees were super nice and very informative. This is definitely a walking tour so bring comfortable shoes.
