    Don’t go. Far too crowded. Pretty sure it was overcapacity at all times. At one point, they announced a lost child over the loudspeaker and no one even heard it because the sound of the crowd and music overpowered it. They startrd shutting and locking the doors to prevent overcrowding, which meant hundreds of people (mostly small children and infants) were left standing in the rain and cold whike they waited until the doors were reopened. ONE BATHROOM for hundreds of little kids and diaper clad babies. I loved the last two free events immensely, but I was extremely disappointed in this one. This was my first time at the domes. I wont go back.
