Want a Halloween-season outing that will make your hair stand on end? Maybe permanently? Head for Bellingham later this month.
“Nightmare at the Spark Museum” is billed as a series of Frankenstein-inspired electrical shows, Oct. 25-31, featuring jaw-dropping devices such as the MegaZapper, one of the largest Tesla coils in the nation.
It would be hard to top the words straight from the museum’s press release:
“See the incredible Cage of Death! Hear Elvis, the singing Tesla Coil! Feel the power of Franklin, the museum’s schizoid robot! Witness 4 million volts of mind-blowing excitement from the MegaZapper! Watch as mad scientists perform the Last Rites of the Evil Dr. Morbius!”
And there’s a special appearance by Benjamin Franklinstein.
It’s all at the Spark Museum of Electrical Invention, dedicated to “inventions and innovations that changed the course of human history.” And caused lots of hair to stand on end.
1312 Bay St., Bellingham. $8-$10, at 7 and 9 p.m. Oct. 25-26 and 29-31. For an additional donation, adult visitors are invited to enter the Cage of Death and be swarmed with 4 million volts of electricity. Not recommended for people with pacemakers.
