Bubblefest Returns to the Discovery Cube Orange County
We attended as a guest of DSC
Bubblefest the most POPular event to come to The Discovery Science Center is back!
For the past few years my family has missed this event and every year we say we will go next year. The time had come and we finally went. I must say I am very happy we waited until this year. The expansion to the Museum is great and they now have a new area for the kids to play outside.
The bubble show is in a new theater this year. It was very nice and the seats were very comfortable. The show runs around 45 minutes, so the comfy chairs were great.
When we got in the theater the kiddos were seated on the floor in a large rectangle area that was marked off. They were asked to stay seated during the show. After a little science question and answer Deni Yang came out and the fun started. Thousands of bubbles poured out over the kids. The squeals and delighted yells coming from the kids was really adorable. My oldest 2 were up on the carpet while my 2 year old sat on a seat next to me. The look on his face was pure joy. As a mom this makes my heart grow so much. I love when I get to witness such joy. He was swatting at the bubbles just like the other kids. It was so much fun.
Deni Yang is amazing. He holds a few Guinness World Records for his bubble work. He made the biggest bubble and he fit the most people in a bubble. We thought that was pretty remarkable. Deni travels all over and shares his love of bubbles. He had his first show at age 4! I cannot even imagine that. He has a true passion for bubbles.
During the show we were sitting enjoying all the bubbles and the music. He had this paired with some lights and also a very pretty stage set. Each of the stages in the show had different bubbles. Some were fog filled while others were not. Big and little bubbles filled the theater. He even did some bubble trick where he had bubbles circling a larger bubble inside of a giant bubble. I think my favorite was the millions of fog filled bubbles that were pouring out over us with the lighting and music. Not only did you have that but he incorporated lasers into the show. It was amazing. The oohs and aahs could be heard all around.
We had so much fun during the show and at the end we were sad to leave.
After the show you can purchase photos of yourself or your loved ones in a giant bubble. My kids thought that was awesome. They loved their picture.
Another thing to do there is play in their outdoor bubble zone. Here you can blow bubbles, slide down a giant slide or bounce in a bounce house. I cannot forget to add that you can go in a giant orb in a pool of water. My kids thought this was the highlight of their outdoor experience at Bubblefest. I thought they looked like little hamsters in a ball. For the 5 and under crowd there is a little bubble zone for them. My 2 year old has a blast playing with the bubbles there.
There is an area to eat outside by the bubble zone. They had food trucks and also the Pizza hut/Taco Bell inside.
For all your bubble loving enjoyment they also sell the gazillion bubbles and their bubble accessories throughout the science center. We purchased a bubble blower, a few big jugs of The Deni Yang’s gazillion bubbles solution and one of the really neat wand sets. He actually used one in the show. My kids were very eager to get it home to make their very own bubble show.
Our time at the Discovery Science Center was very visually stimulating and we are now looking forward to going back for the Bubblefest next year.
