Media Release: Glasgow Science Centre gears up for Halloween ‘Spooktacular’

Halloween 'Spooktacular'

PROBABLY Scotland’s biggest and best family Halloween party is back.

At the Glasgow Science Centre, on Friday 26th of October, witches, zombies, ghosts and fairies alike are all invited to attend the ‘spooktacular’ party.

There are some treats and definitely some tricks in store.

Hair-raising ghost stories, under the cloak of darkness in the planetarium, come face to face with some creepy critters like scorpions and tarantulas.

There are fireballs and explosions as Professor Bedlam runs amok in the Science Show Theatre. Win great prizes in the fancy dress competitions. Become Indiana Bones, digging for dinosaur bones – will you uncover a Tyrannosaurus Rex? Plus all the kids get a goody bag to take home.

Robin Hoyle, director of Science at Glasgow Science Centre, said: “The Halloween Party at the Centre is one of the highlights of our year.

“Last year, almost 2,000 guisers from all over the country came on the night and it always has a great fun family filled atmosphere. All our staff look forward to thinking of new fun and frightening things for our party guests to see and do.”

There are lots more fun activities for all the family, so make this Halloween a memorable one, safe in the knowledge that your kids will be indoors, warm, dry and in the company of hundreds of other guisers.

Tickets cost £5 per person and can be purchased online at or by calling our Contact Centre on 0141 420 5000.
