Our family was lucky enough to be invited to attend Bubblefest 2015 at Discovery Cube complimentary to share our experience with you. 
Bubblefest 2015

What an event!  I am excited to share about my family’s experience at Discovery Cube OC’s Bubblefest XIX – their amazing annual spring bubble extravaganza that features everything bubbles, now through April 12th, 2015.

Not only do bubbles bring total delight to kids of all ages, I found that my kiddos were actually learning about some of the science behind bubbles (which was an added bonus)!

There are lots of bubble events and activities to see and do. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect…

The Mega Bubblefest Laser Show

This is a must-see show!  We found it to be the highlight of the event.  Get ready to be blown away with the “Bubble Scientist,” Deni Yang, and his world-famous “Mega Bubble Show!”  We learned that Deni travels all over the world performing his bubble show, and actually holds two World Records in bubble-making.  Pretty cool.

My hubby and I were secretly wondering just how many different bubble tricks could really take place in 45 minutes – and let me tell you – A LOT.  It seemed like parents and kids alike were all oohing and ahhing over the bubbles, lasers, music, lights, and special effects – a professional show worthy of any family-friendly Las Vegas spectacle.  It featured exciting tricks like smoking bubbles, spinning bubbles, bouncing bubbles, human-sized bubbles, and more.

My favorite bubble sequence was when Deni crated an underwater bubble and laser masterpiece, where the audience really felt like they were floating and swimming in bubbles under the sea.

My kids loved the “snow” show where thousands of bubbles were released, making it appear as though we were playing in the snow.  You could hear squeals of pure delight and giggling from all areas in the theater.

Speaking of the theater, it is a newly renovated 10,000 sq. ft. gorgeous venue space that is a first-of-its-kind in the museum world, with the ability to transform from a world-class exhibit hall to a 500 seat theater.

Mega Bubblefest Laser Show Times:

9:30 a.m.*, 11:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:30 p.m.

*Member show – Members, get your tickets for the 9:30 am show for just $4!

Bubble Wall
