Rocket Park Mini Golf reveals that the same laws of motion and gravity that guide the path of a spaceship control the motion of golf balls here on Earth.

Explore key science concepts such as propulsion, gravity, escape velocity, launch window, gravitational assist, and more in a nine-hole miniature golf course, built around actual rockets and spacecraft that helped initiate the space race (originally featured at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair).

Includes admission to the fascinating, hands-on New York Hall of Science.

Recommended for ages 6 and older.
