Adult Night

Friday, November 17, 2017

Theme:  The Best of Explora

Explora staff are pulling out the stops to offer fun, unique experiences for our adult visitors. So if you’re looking for a fun, different, affordable night out, don’t miss this one!
Have you ever tried lying on a real bed of nails? Or have you made tinsel fly? Or watched a flaming gummy bear demo? Tonight you can! Plus you can challenge yourself and your friends to build the tallest roller coaster, design the perfect paper airplane, or build and decorate the most unique miniature house! Plus: learn to make jewelry, experiment with electricity, and make bubble art. Explore all our hands-on exhibit activities.

 Thank you, Adult Night Media Sponsor:

When community members let us know they wanted a night at Explora without the kids, we listened, and created a night just for adults. Adult Night debuted at Explora in November 2004, and has grown into an evening popular with college students, young professionals, parents and grandparents on their night off from the kids, meet-up and singles groups, folks on date night, active retirement groups, and more.

Thanks to 100.3 The Peak and Lite 95.1 for supporting Adult Night

Often joining us for Adult Night
