Way Late Play Date: Wizarding World

Every few months, the Adventure Science Center opens their doors after hours to adults only for unique fundraising events that combine science and your favorite pop culture franchises.

From investigating Batman’s incredible helmet to exploring what food might taste like in the apocalypse, no two events are the same! Enjoy the chance to let your inner kid out to play as you explore all the museum has to offer – from exciting hands-on exhibits and experiments to incredible planetarium features – all with an adult beverage in hand.

Wizarding World

The boy who lived is hopping aboard the Hogwarts Express for another 21+ evening at the Science Center to usher in the holidays. The evening will include a Hogwarts House hat sorting, wand making, and other magical lessons for muggles including Care of Magical Creatures, Herbology, Divination, Astronomy, and more!

Important Update:

Adventure Science Center will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result for entry to this Way Late Play Date. The enjoyment of food and beverages will make consistent mask-wearing difficult and ASC wants to ensure a fun and safe environment for attendees and staff. It has been two years since the last WLPD and they are taking these measures in an effort to reduce the potential of having to cancel the event.

When you arrive, Security and Adventure Science Center staff will be at the entry doors checking for:

  • ID – this is a 21+ event.
  • Proof of completed vaccination – which can be presented as a physical or smartphone copy of your vaccine card. Individuals who have only received one of a two-shot vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test result.


  • Negative COVID-19 test result – which must be timestamped within 72 hours or less of the event.
