Beaches Introduces Planetarium Experience


Lost in space, Caribbean-style.

Beaches Resorts has debuted the region’s first resort-based portable planetarium experience at Beaches Negril Resort & Spa in Jamaica and Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa.

Discovery Dome is a transportable air-conditioned, full dome theatre that surrounds guests with a panoramic interactive experience. Within the Discovery Dome, children and families will view “One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure,” a show that launches this fall and will remain year round as part of the Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street currently celebrating its 11th year at Beaches Resorts.

Guests of all ages are invited into the Discovery Dome to explore the night sky with favourite Sesame Street friends Big Bird, Elmo and their friend from China, Hu Hu Zhu. For 25 minutes, they are surrounded by the night sky while they learn about the Big Dipper, the North Star, the Sun and the Moon.

Additionally, as part of exclusive offerings this fall at all three Beaches Resorts is “Exploring the Moon with Elmo,” another new signature activity that is currently available to guests. A complement to Discovery Dome, this program introduces children to basic astronomy concepts, the phases of the moon and its surface and allows kids to create their own clay moon model as a takeaway of their edutainment experience.
