TOP TEN REASONS WHY…
ThunderBlast is the BEST way to view Thunder Over Louisville:

10. This year’s theme is “Earth, Wind, and Fireworks!” and celebrates Thunder from the ground all the way up!
9. You can be outdoors or indoors at any time (but never indoors and outdoors at the same time.)
8. People will walk up to you and Do Science right before your eyes! (People that work here.)
7. Wear the kids out on inflatable bounce houses and slides, archeological digs, and games like “dunk (tank) a scientist.”
6. Only ThunderBlast Ticket Holders can visit the Science Center that day, so be one of the lucky ones.
5. Exclusive food trucks mean you don’t have to eat funnel cake – but you totally can. Lots of it. No judgement.
4. Save your breath – we’re smoke-free!
3. Take a movie break in our 4-Story Digital Theater – but buy now, especially if you want to see the 10:15 PM show and wait out Thunder traffic.
2. Clean indoor restrooms – you don’t know what you’re missing until you don’t have it.
1. It’s Thunder Over Louisville! Have the most “family-friendly” Thunder you can with Kentucky Science Center.

That’s right. At Thunder Over Louisville, you get all of these things and more. A completely secure, family friendly, and clean event, with enough to keep everyone in the family entertained, from the beginning of the airshow to the end of fireworks. What more could you ask for?
