SPOOKY SCIENCE NIGHTS AT GREAT LAKES SCIENCE CENTER
Late Night Programs Bring Out the Spooky Side of Science
October 12th, 2009
CLEVELAND (October 12, 2009) – Great Lakes Science Center is going all out this Halloween season with Spooky Science Nights October 23, 24 and 30. The evenings run from 5:30 – 9 p.m. and combine all the Science Center has to offer – the Steamship William G. Mather, the OMNIMAX® Theater, hundreds of hands-on exhibits and science demonstrations – all with a family-friendly, spooky twist.
All three nights include eerie stories told aboard the Steamship William G. Mather, exploding pumpkins, the opportunity to explore the entire Great Lakes Science Center and the OMNIMAX film Dinosaurs! Alive.
“Spooky Science Nights have taken on a whole new twist this year with a new OMNI film and extra programming,” said Amanda Whitener, manager of visitor experience. “We’ve found that most of our visitors like it when we blow things up, so we’ve decided it’s the appropriate time of year to blow up some pumpkins!”
Other highlights include spooky demonstrations by Science Center staff, mixing eerie concoctions in the chemistry lab and making fake wounds and scars out of polymer.
Tickets are $10 for members and $12 for non-members. Tickets to the OMNIMAX movie Dinosaurs! Alive are an additional $5.50 (show times are at 5:30 and 8:30 p.m.). Call (216) 621-2400 to register. Advance registration is recommended, as spots are filling quickly.
