This sequel to last year’s popular live Show promises to be spookier and more electrifying than ever. “We’ve got a great new script, more talented performers, and a fantastic new bunch of special effects that should blow the audience away,” says Tana Granack, Director of Operations. “We promise a fun and memorable performance.” The show is full of shocks and surprises with a haunted cast of crazy, unforgettable devices sure to thrill and chill. See Maxwell the schizoid talking robot. Hear Elvis, the miraculous singing Tesla Coil! View the infamous Cage of Death! Witness the awe-inspiring MegaZapper – throwing 4 million volts of lightning right before your eyes. Marvel as mad scientists discover a magic caldron and conjure up the ghosts of Thomas Edison, Nicola Tesla, and featuring special guest spirit: Benjamin Franklinstein. “It’s tough being haunted every Halloween,” muses Museum president and CEO, John Jenkins, “but somebody’s got to do it.” This year’s Halloween event will be three nights only, with all shows at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 adults, $10 for Spark Museum members, and $8 kids 11 and under (this is a family event but not recommended for infants and toddlers) For an additional donation adult visitors are invited to enter the Cage of Death, be engulfed with 4 million volts of raw electricity, and receive an official Spark Museum “I Survived the Cage of Death” sticker.
