Air and Scare

This annual event takes place in October every year.


Join us for creepy crafts and activities with a spooky twist including Ghost Blasters, Trick or Trajectory Rocket Launch, spooky science Discovery Stations, Paper Scare Planes, story time, puppet shows, and photo opportunities with costumed characters from some of your favorite space- and ghost-themed movies. Learn about the possibility of aliens in the universe and make your own alien. Visit the Tot zone with the little ones and send the Teens and Tweens to activities just for them. Don't forget to wear your costume, and come prepared for some awesome trick-or-treating!

Please note: For security reasons, full-face masks are prohibited on visitors over 16 years of age.
