A coded message, pages torn from an ancient journal, a dubious mortgage, and a time travel experiment gone awry--these are the challenges awaiting investigators at Explorit’s Spooky Science Nights, open to the public Friday and Saturday, October 26-27, 6:00-9:00 p.m.

 

Travel back in time to Explorit's wild west, ghost town past to solve a gold rush mystery and help the Mace family save their horse ranch! Use physics to open the time portal and immerse yourself in the nineteenth century. Then return to Explorit's 21st-century lab to unravel the clues and solve the mystery.

 

Analyze soil and mineral samples, decode a secret message, compare handwriting samples, and much more! Your sleuthing could change the course of history! Then drop by our craft room to make a souvenir to take home. Solve the mystery, win a prize!

 

The cost is $10 for children ages 3-17. Adults and children 2 and under are free. Registration is open now! To register, call 530-756-0191. Tickets will also be available at the door the nights of the event.

 

Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind immersive sci-fi mystery, this weekend only!
