Jack-O-Lantern Lane


Saturday, November 3rd at the DaVinci Science Center in Allentown

Jack-O-Lantern Lane, opening September 22, is a newly-designed, family-friendly walk-through Halloween experience that excites, delights, but doesn’t fright. Dr. Frankenstein has moved into town and he needs your help to bring science to life! To get to Frankenstein’s Lab, stroll through Jack-O-Lantern Lane and explore the giant Newton’s Cradle, the science of the color-changing Circuit House, and more exhibit stations. At the end of your journey, use your knowledge to help Dr. Frankenstein with his lively experiments, such as FrankenToys, Monster Masks, and more. Before you leave, discover the science behind Dr. Frankenstein’s greatest creation during the It’s Alive! Live Science Show on weekends.
Jack-O-Lantern Lane is sponsored by The Hartford and Agora Cyber Charter School.


How Easton landed Da Vinci ‘Science City’

2016-12-12_14-16-18A 500,000-gallon saltwater tank and 170,000-square-foot science center will bring sharks, a large-screen movie theater, restaurant and more to Easton, officials said Tuesday during a news conference for the proposed Da Vinci “Science City.”

The $130 million project, an expansion of the Da Vinci Science Center in west Allentown, is modeled after the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga and is being billed as the largest public aquarium in Pennsylvania, officials said.

 During the unveiling at Grand Eastonian Suites Hotel, officials showed a rendering of a center that features a sleek glass front in a wave pattern with a grass roof. The Days Inn at 185 S. Third St. would be torn down to make way for the Da Vinci project.
