Bubblefest 2018 at the Discovery Cube Orange County was new for us this year, and I’m asking myself why we have never been before now?!? We even had a membership for several years when we lived in OC. The bubble show was so fun to watch, for kids and adults alike…and we could have spent all day in the exhibit room. We will definitely be back before it ends on April 8, 2018.
The show itself was far more elaborate than I expected…the room is darkened for much of the show and the stage is fully decorated, utilizing lasers, specialized lighting and set design. The show moved quickly and captured the attention of the children form start to finish. Even the 15 month old next to us watched the entire show!
There is floor seating right in front of the stage for children- no need to reserve special seating, kids can go right in front of the stage and watch close-up. Parents can sit in the seating or in the back row of the floor as to stay closer to younger children.
The amphitheater isn’t that large, so there really isn’t bad seating per say…but if you want a seat (and not the floor) I would pay the few extra dollars for reserved.
The Bubblefest exhibit features hands-on bubble activities, a giant bubble photo opp and some inflatable obstacle courses (getting some physical energy out is 👍👍 in my book!). For $15 extra we put all four kids in a giant bubble- you can see a short clip of it below, it was fun!
The activities are designed to teach children the science and mathematics of bubbles, such as their surface tension, elasticity, air pressure, molecular and geometric properties.
You do need an additional Bubblefest ticket to access the show and the Bubblefest activities, which includes:
- Admission into the Mega Bubblefest Laser Show (Guests will need to select a show time when purchasing their ticket.)
- Bubble Lab
- Water Spheres
- Bubble Exhibits
- Mega Bubbles Courtyard
- Early Learners bubble exploration for guests 5 and under
You can buy your tickets here.
And of course there is the rest of the museum! There are two whole floors (huge floors!) of educational, science, hands on activities- and even a huge dinosaur outside for kids to climb. We spent over five hours and we could have stayed longer there is so much to see and do!

Me, hopelessly trying to wrangle two boys into the same photo. This is about as good as it gets, LOL.
