Spooktacular Science at Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium

October 28, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


The beakers are bubbling again for Flandrau’s annual Spooktacular Science event. This celebration delivers haunted holiday high-jinks for the whole family!

Participate in frightfully fun activities from UA student science groups, as well as slippery slime, liquid nitrogen, arts and crafts, and Halloween Treats & Trinkets!

Plus, watch the popular Halloween laser music show “Fright Lights” in the cool comfort of the Eos Planetarium Theater. You’ll shiver to the sounds of your favorite spooky songs like ThrillerMonster Mash, and Purple People Eater as dazzling laser images dance on the planetarium done.

When you visit, you can also see one of the amazing full-dome planetarium shows in the fall lineup like “Perfect Little Planet” or “We Are Stars.” These fun, informative shows are perfect for families.

The Spooktacular festivities will take place on Sunday, October 28, from 12noon until 5pm.

Come in costume and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a free family membership!
