It is in the high school. Look for signs. It was very neat with the idea that high schoolers created it. There wasn't much information about how it was created, how it works, how long it takes them to do each sign, just warnings about how much the machine cost and to keep your kids from getting up and not to leave garbage because she wasn't out maid. It was awesome for my 9, 7, and 4 year old, but we can say we've done it and can mark it off our list.

The show was good, as expected. The staff was friendly and kind. Deducted 1 star because it wasn't clearly marked exactly where the entrance was and we ended up driving around for 10 minutes in the pouring rain in the dark trying to avoid a long walk. (fwiw, between the schools is a 2nd floor walkway that connects them. If you go, park as close to the front of that as possible. The entrance is in a recessed area.)

This is a small venue so it is intimate. The visuals were good but the sound system was a weak point for the program. If you like laser light shows you will like this one.

When your lucky enough to catch a showing it was great but the school doesn't update the calendar on the website and when they do it so few and far bet

We weren't sure where to go when we pulled up. It's the building on the far left of the school campus. They have signs but they're small and hard to spot if you don't know to look for them. Overall, the experience was a lot of fun. It's something different to do at a great price.
