Kentucky Science Center’s biggest family-friendly event of the year is back!

Saturday April 22, 2017 from 2:00 PM to 11:00 PM*

 Thunder Over Louisville is the kickoff event for the Kentucky Derby Festival!
• Airshow begins at 3:00 PM
• Fireworks display begins at 9:30 PM

Kentucky Science Center will not open until 2:00 PM on April 22; we will be open from 2:00 PM to 11:00 PM for ThunderBlast guests only.


ThunderBlast is the BEST way to view Thunder Over Louisville:

10. This year’s theme is “Earth, Wind, and Fireworks!” and celebrates Thunder from the ground all the way up!
9. You can be outdoors or indoors at any time (but never indoors and outdoors at the same time.)
8. People will walk up to you and Do Science right before your eyes! (People that work here.)
7. Wear the kids out on inflatable bounce houses and slides, archeological digs, and games like “dunk (tank) a scientist.”
6. Only ThunderBlast Ticket Holders can visit the Science Center that day, so be one of the lucky ones.
5. Exclusive food trucks mean you don’t have to eat funnel cake – but you totally can. Lots of it. No judgement.
4. Save your breath – we’re smoke-free!
3. Take a movie break in our 4-Story Digital Theater – but buy now, especially if you want to see the 10:15 PM show and wait out Thunder traffic.
2. Clean indoor restrooms – you don’t know what you’re missing until you don’t have it.
1. It’s Thunder Over Louisville! Have the most “family-friendly” Thunder you can with Kentucky Science Center.

That’s right. At Thunder Over Louisville, you get all of these things and more. A completely secure, family friendly, and clean event, with enough to keep everyone in the family entertained, from the beginning of the airshow to the end of fireworks. What more could you ask for?



• Lawn chairs and blankets.*
• Money for the food vendors, souvenirs, special activities, and Theater tickets.
• Identification/proof of age for purchase of alcoholic beverages.
• Personal umbrellas (no larger than a golf umbrella), strollers and small wagons are permitted.
* Lawn chairs are not permitted in the Science Center; the only exception is for the 10:15 p.m. film when a chair-check will be provided.


• Tents, coolers, alcohol, firearms, pets, food, and drink.
• Security will be checking bags at the entrance to the parking lot.

    My kids would love this!! They are younger. So I think something at the science center would be better for Thunder :)

    It's the best!

    I haven't ever taken my daughter and my son was only 2 when I took him. At 9 and 6 it'd be such a great memory for them! I never get to be the fun mom! Help me give them such a fun experience!

    Every year we say we will go the next and it always gets put off because of the crowds and having to take the kids to port-a-potties. This year we can't even go early to get a good spot because of commitments. This would fix both of those issues!
