Starting tonight & running through Christmas Break, there is a new interactive theater show called Apollo 13: Mission Control that is coming to the Tacoma Dome and then after that to the Spokane Convention Center in January. Apollo 13: Mission Control is an interactive theater show where the audience sit at replica consoles and become Mission Control for one of the greatest survival stories of the 20th century. There are switches to be flicked, monitors to study and phone calls to make. One lucky audience member even gets to become an astronaut and travel into space for the evening! Apollo 13: Mission Control has sold out audiences in New Zealand and Australia and is launching its USA tour here in Tacoma and then will be heading to Spokane after the Tacoma show.
You can choose to be part of the Apollo 13: Mission Control show by purchasing Console tickets where it will be an interactive adventure, or you could sit back with a Press Gallery ticket and watch the Flight Director take everyone on this journey. The show is 85 minutes long. You can find more information about the show on their website, You can also check out their Facebook for cool pictures & updates, as well as follow them on Twitter at @apollo13live.
This is a very unique and interactive show, so the ticket prices are pricier, with prices ranging from $39.50 – $54.50 + fees for the Console tickets. However, you can get use the promo code: MOM for kids to get in FREE. You can receive up to 2 FREE tickets for kids ages 6-12.

You can also go directly to www.ticketmaster.com or call 1-800-745-3000.
My family will be heading there this weekend to check out the show & I will give you all the details and pictures from the event after we check it out, so you’ll know the full scoop of what it is like! I think it looks like a fun and educational experience for the whole family, something very unique and different. These could make a great last-minute Christmas gift to give tickets to the show!
