We Tried It: Dark Matters

Dark Matters is a brand new experience every time you go – and one of our top ten date ideas in Edmonton. Telus World of Science is closed on a Thursday night for an 18+ event where you can get drinks ($6 for tickets) and see the centre in a new light (or darker light).

It’s a chance to check out the exhibits, but also experience the themed activities and events. During the gaming event we: watched ice cream being made with liquid nitrogen (and aphrodesiac ingredients), tried the oculus rift VR via Bioware, played video games on the big screen, listened to a great talk about video game design, had a dance party in the lobby with totally dance-able music, saw the latest ‘Beyond the Rubiks Cube’ display, played in the science garage and learned a new board games with Table Top Cafe.

There are a ton of activities to pack into the three house session – so you’re going to want to get there on time. We saw nearly everything, and left just before ten o’clock.  Every new session, there are brand new activities to come and experience.

This time around, it was packed with activities, and people. It’s one of the date nights that we most look forward to because you never know fully what to expect, but you know you’re going to have a great time and come out with something new learned or experienced.

The live DJ and the fact that there was something for everyone at the event, makes it a great first date option to break the ice, or a twentieth date option to try something new.

Tickets are $17.00 in advance, $23.00 at the door – making it a fun and affordable date night if you like to experience new things. As we mentioned before, drink tickets are $6/7. We recommend to eat before you come, but there is a limited selection of items in the cafe like pretzels, pizza slices and hot dogs.
