When community members let us know they wanted a night at Explora without the kids, we listened, and created a night just for adults. Adult Night debuted at Explora in November 2004, and has grown into an evening popular with college students, young professionals, parents and grandparents on their night off from the kids, meet-up and singles groups, folks on date night, active retirement groups, and more.
