  • Wheelie Spooky is free and open to the public, takes place in an ADA compliant gymnasium and is geared to a G to PG audience.
  • From 2:00pm – 2:30 we offer limited admission* catered to kids with special sensory needs.
  • The Black Cat Cozy Corner is available should our guests need a quiet space to collect themselves.
  • Limited event tote bags will be available for purchase and include a full-size candy bar, Fall sticker book, Halloween-themed children’s book, and coupons from local businesses.
  • Have your picture taken with our “real, live Mermaid” from the deep!
  • Check out cool color-changing slime and make-your-own magic potion at our Magic Matter Play Station.
  • Let Artist Monet Hampson paint your face to appear as a special animal, creature, or character.
  • Spooky snacks and Halloween Hot Chocolate will be available.
  • Take home a fun, DIY Halloween craft.
  • Donations to support our year-round work with local NICU Families will gladly be accepted.

*To reduce the potential for overstimulation we ask sensory-sensitive families to RSVP at to ensure a space during limited admission.
