Jack-O-Lantern Lane

Newly Designed!

Open through Nov. 4, 2018

Jack-O-Lantern Lane is a newly-designed, family-friendly walk-through Halloween experience that excites, delights, but doesn’t fright. Dr. Frankenstein has moved into town and he needs your help to bring science to life! To get to Frankenstein’s Lab, stroll through Jack-O-Lantern Lane and explore the giant Newton’s Cradle, the science of the color-changing Circuit House, and more exhibit stations. At the end of your journey, use your knowledge to help Dr. Frankenstein with his lively experiments, such as FrankenToys, Monster Masks, and more. Before you leave, discover the science behind Dr. Frankenstein’s greatest creation during the It’s Alive! Live Science Show on weekends.
