What is it?

The SkySpace Kids Club is a special club created just for kids. Kids Club members have access to exclusive club activities, special surprises and drawings for prizes! When kids register for the club, they receive their very own "pilot's license," which shows their membership, along with a lanyard.

Each time members attend a SkySpace Kids Club event, they will receive a stamp on their "pilot's license." Once they collect 10 stamps, they'll receive a special prize! Plus, each time they visit the Air Zoo and show their "pilot's license" at the Kitty Hawk Cafe, they will receive free popcorn!

How to Register

To participate in club activities and events, kids must hold a SkySpace Kids Club Membership.
