    Food Services

    Spaceland's hangar houses an upstairs café with a bar. Newly remodeled, the café has great food, good drinks, a flat screen HD TV with surround sound, and a small stage for karaoke. We also have an upper deck outside of the café overlooking the landing area for spectators' viewing pleasure. Additional vendor stations will be set up on the first floor for quick snacks and drinks.

    Nearby restaurants aren't close enough to pop out for a quick lunch, but there are many choices in Pearland (about 20 minutes north) and Angleton (about 15 minutes southeast).
