CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR ONE NIGHT EARLY
AT GREAT LAKES SCIENCE CENTER
December 2nd, 2010
CLEVELAND – It may still be too early to have plans set for New Year’s Eve, but what about plans for New Year’s Eve Eve? The Great Lakes Science Center will host its sixth annual New Year’s Eve Eve, a late-night family event, on December 30 from 7 to 11:30 p.m.
The event features a unique indoor carpet skating rink, and visitors will have the chance to make their very own fake polymer snow to take home with them as well as create a hovercraft snowman. Families will be able to explore the entire Great Lakes Science Center, having access to hundreds of hands-on exhibits, including the special exhibition Strange Matter, and enjoy hot chocolate and warm, late-night snacks. With festive demonstrations put on by Science Center staff, including our brand new Big Science Shows, guests will have endless recipes for safe, family fun during their late-night visit.
Two OMNIMAX® movies are included in the price of admission: Santa vs. the Snowman and Alaska.
Santa vs. the Snowman is ideal for those looking for a more action-packed holiday film. The story of a jealous snowman who takes on Santa, the film features a hilarious, epic-scale polar war fought with holiday defense mechanisms like a hot-chocolate squirt gun and giant igloo robot walkers.
Alaska is a great family-friendly film that lets viewers witness the spirit of the wild in the thundering stampede of the caribou, the beauty of the polar bear, the deadly hunt of the wolf pack and so many more majestic animals and sights of that wondrous land.
Guests can top off the night by ringing in 2011 with a countdown, a ginger ale toast, and a four-story balloon drop complete with 1,500 balloons falling from a height of 150 feet.
To make reservations, call (216) 621-2400. Pricing for this program is $24 per person and $20 for members. Advanced reservations are suggested, as space is limited. This event has sold out the past three years, so be sure to book early!
