The not-so-frightful “Pumpkin Palooza” festivities begin on Thursday, Oct. 6 and run through Monday Oct. 31, with a host of new, spellbinding science activities for kids of all ages. Open Thursday – Sunday, guests should plan for a howling good time as the new festival features some of the most scientifically silly Halloween activities conjured up in lab, including:
The Pumpkin Palooza Dance Party – A 30-minute, interactive dance party that includes a giant 20 ft. projection-mapped DJ named “Jack-o-Lynn” spinning some of today’s most popular dance hits.
Ride Boo’s Bumper Cars – Caution! Little ghosts and goblins will be flying around a man-made track as they learn the laws of motion and speed.
Crazy Mazes – Guests will unleash their cognitive abilities as they make their way through two crazy maze challenges.
Pick-A-Pumpkin Patch – Look no further, you will find the cutest pumpkins in this patch as guests pick and play amongst the gourds.
And much, more

“Halloween is the perfect season to celebrate the spooky side of STEM education,” says Joe Adams, CEO, Discovery Cube. “This year, we’ve gone all out with two floors of STEM-inspired spooks as kids can ride the bumper cars, master the maze challenge, pick a pumpkin from our patch, or dance like an Egyptian on a 10,000 square-foot interactive dance floor with a projection-mapped DJ spinning some of today’s best kids tunes.”


Get ready to carve out some fun as guests are encouraged to come in costume and play-the-day away across two floors of the “Pumpkin Palooza” festival showcase. Ticket prices for the fall festival experience are $5, and not included in the general admission price for entry.
