Add a Guided Lung Tour:
Enhance your visit with a behind-the-scenes tour of the technology that helps run our facility. In this 30-minute guided tour you'll experience one of the "lungs" that regulated the air pressure inside Biosphere 2's main glass enclosure.
There is no elevator access to the underground areas included in this tour. Guests unable to independently use stairs that lead underground without the use of cane, crutches, walking stick, walker, or wheelchair, will not be permitted on this tour.
Please arrive 30 minutes before the tour start time to allow for check-in. Tours start promptly on time and no refunds will be given for late arrivals.
There will be a limited number of tickets sold per hour and day. Once a limit is reached, interested guests must select another time and/or day.
It is the policy of Biosphere 2 to remain open during most periods of inclement weather; however, where extraordinary circumstances warrant, due to weather or other unforeseen business interruption, the company reserves the right to cancel the event. Should this occur, your ticket will be valid for an alternate date.
