The Infinity Science Center's official launch is receiving rave reviews. Thursday morning, the Hancock County attraction opened its doors for the first time to the general public. Officials said 492 people decided they wanted to be among the first to tour Infinity. Some of visitors said they were so impressed they're already planning a trip back and to bring more friends along.
After much anticipation, people jumped at their first chance to see what it's like to be an astronaut in outer space. Visitors said the Infinity Science Center didn't disappoint.
Rebecca Draeger was there with her siblings, parents, and great-grandparents.
"I thought it was great because I saw these cool things and the exhibits," said Draeger.
"I think it's pretty neat. It really it," said Andrea Cole of Vancleave. "I think it's going to be a great educational opportunity. It would be great for field trips. It's another place where people can go, families can go, to see something different that not everyone around the country has."
Some visitors said what they like most is that you don't have to be a science and technology buff to enjoy the exhibits.
Mark Schimmelpfennig and his wife stopped by during a visit to Mississippi from Minnesota.
"A lot of it is hands on. Just to see the mechanical things involved in getting those engines going. And if one little line fails, maybe the whole thing fails. It's really exceptional. It's amazing."
Visitors said they'll be doing their part to spread the word about Infinity.
"I have a 15-year-old daughter and I'll probably bring her and my husband and let them see," said Cole. "I have family coming down from Iowa and this will be something to show them too when they come visit. I will definitely tell everybody what I saw. I think it will be a great think for everybody to come see. Check it out. "
Schimmelpfennig said, "I'll be telling them to get down here and look it. This is amazing."
Officials said they were very pleased with the steady crowd they saw Thursday, and are expecting a very heavy turnout this weekend when many people are off work.
