The show we enjoyed at the end of the night was really cool, but I would recommend just enjoying the actual planetarium more than anything. We had a fun projectionist that knew his stuff and was funny as well.

I regret going to the planetarium. We went to a Jimi Hendrix laser light show, and it was basically an hour of very repetitive and unimpressive laser lights set to eardrum-blasting music.

Have been her twice for lasarium shows. Pink Floyd and Queen. Chairs are comfortable, lights good with the music. I would like louder music so I don't have to hear people around me singing louder than the music. Great shows though!

Traveled to CU Boulder for family weekend and was pleasantly surprised that the laser shows at the Fiske were on the weekend agenda. Tickets were reasonable and the show a modest 45 minutes - laser show set to music from the 80's and 90's! Just...More

We went to see the show called Black Holes: the other side of Infinity. The show was pretty good, but the presentation by one of the astrophysicists is what really made the show shine. Complementing the show was the fact that on Fridays one can...More
