“This was better than Disneyland. It is down-to-earth, accessible and you really get your money’s worth. Everyone gets turns riding rides and playing games. It’s just a wonderful experience.” - Parent comment October 14, 2012
Children and their families are invited to come in costume and explore the Bay Area Discovery Museum, transformed into a haunted wonderland complete with games, attractions and live entertainment. Enroll in the witches’ school, take a train or pony ride, visit the petting zoo and enjoy a full brew of games, activities and live entertainment.
We accept cash, checks, Visa and MasterCard. All activities are included. Event takes place rain or shine. Look for our Fly-by Lane for fast entry access with your Eventbrite ticket. Tickets will also be available at the door.
