Grownups! You get the science center all to yourself (no kids allowed!) to explore exhibits at a savings, enjoy an adult beverage and rock out to music on Friday nights in September.

Adult Recess provides your chance to take over the Fleet's newest exhibition, Pause|Play. This world-premiere exhibition features adult-sized recess activities where you can zip down a 31-foot-long slide that clocks your speed, dig into augmented-reality sandboxes and shoot hoops while hampered by distortion lenses. There's just one rule: No Adulting Allowed! 

So, leave the kids at home and let your curiosity run wild exploring the Fleet! Do it at a discount—special admission pricing applies starting at 6 p.m. on Friday nights (see below). You must be 21+ because, yes, the no-host bar will be open in Pause|Play on Friday nights. Food is also available for purchase inside the Fleet Science Center throughout the night. Food Truck Fridays continue outdoors on the Prado on Fridays in September, too.

Experience Adult Recess on Friday nights at the Fleet this month, September 6 through 27.
