This weekend is the last for the Orlando Science Center‘s summer hours for the year, and they’re celebrating with events starring both Blue Man Group and Iron Man on Saturday, August 17.
Blue Man Group and Orlando Science Center will be presenting “Rhythm & Blue Man Group Workshops” in the afternoon, at 1:30pm and 2:30pm. Alongside members of the Blue Man Group cast, guests will use everyday objects to create music.
You must purchase tickets in advance, as spaces are limited. Cost is $19 for adults and $13 for youth (ages 3–11) and includes access to the “Rhythm and Blue Man Group Workshop” as well as all four floors of exhibits, giant-screen and Hollywood feature-length films, and live programming.
BMG not your style? How about Iron Man?
Iron Man will be there from 5:30pm to 7:45pm to meet and take photos with guests. Then Iron Man 3 in 3D will be shown starting at 7:50pm in the Digital Adventure Theater.
Also beginning at 7pm, visitors can witness the wonders of the night sky as they observe moons, planets and other astronomical events using the OSC refractor telescope — one of the largest available to the public in Florida.
Meet Iron Man and see the movie with admission to Orlando Science Center which is $19 for adults and $13 for youth. Tickets include access to all four floors of exhibits, unlimited educational films, one Hollywood feature film and live presentations.

The Orlando Science Center will premiere Iron Man 3 in 3D n the Digital Adventure Theater: A National Geographic Experience on July 13. And to kick it off in style, they’re hosting a day in honor of the ultimate inventor Tony Stark.
Meet Iron Man in person from 5:30pm-6:15pm and 7pm-7:45pm and then see Iron Man 3 at 7:50pm. Guests are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero.
If that’s not enough, guests can discover the nuances of video game tech from Orlando’s best in the Maker community for July’s Maker Saturday; go hands-on with engineering demos outside the theater; and build bridges, structures and boats in the OSC’s newest exhibit, Engineer It!
Maker Saturday runs 11am-4pm.
All of this, even the movie, is included in regular OSC admission ($19 for adults and $13 for youth).
Marvel’s Iron Man 3 isn’t due in theaters until May 3, but Walt Disney World is already kicking off promoting the movie by re-theming one of its monorail vehicles to an Iron Man motif.
Starting this last weekend (in time for the huge Easter crowds at the theme park), guests could ride aboard an monorail featuring Iron Man on one end, and the Iron Patriot (another IM3 character) on the other.
Here is a photo of the entire vehicle:
And here is a close up of the Iron Man end – note the placement of the Stark Industries logo:
Finally, here is a shot of the Iron Patriot end:
I personally love when Disney does this kind of stuff, and it’s good to see a Marvel presence at WDW. Hopefully there will also be some good Iron Man 3 merchandise available around the movie’s release.
