Due to the recent avian influenza outbreak in Northern California, our raptor and walkthrough aviaries are closed to the public until the outbreak subsides. This was done out of an abundance of caution to protect our resident birds and keep them safe. We appreciate your understanding. To read more, click here.

  • Photo-op! A Step-in bubble station. Don’t just enjoy the bubble, surround yourself with the bubble.
  • Ooo! Aah! Imagine the colors you’ll see in a rainbow bubble foam eruption.
  • A special bead wall panel, where you can use provided flashlights to play with the reflection and refraction of light.
  • Make your own bubbles with fog inside (just like Tom Noddy!).
  • We got yarn-bombed by Knits For Life for this special celebration.

  • Animal talks throughout the day, on the hour, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with our live Animal Ambassadors.
  • Rainbow and Pride themed items in our well-stocked Gift Shop (all purchases support CuriOdyssey, a non-profit).
  • Bubbles. Lots and lots of bubbles. Bubble stations and bubbles blowing everywhere!

The Science of Bubbles & Rainbows

Bubbles and rainbows demonstrate many properties of physics, and both play a role in research today!
