Riverside Discovery Center (RDC) will open the Night at the Haunted Museum exhibit this Friday October 2nd at 7pm at the old Wildlife World Museum in Gering. Now in its 27th year, Spooktacular has become so popular that RDC has expanded the spooky event to two locations. The exciting expansion will take place as the popular scary section (geared towards teens and adults) will now be held in the old Wildlife World Museum in Gering. “Night at the Haunted Museum” will be sure to give those looking for a terrifying thrill the spooky adrenaline rush they’re looking for!
“The scary section has gained so much popularity in recent years, moving to the old Wildlife World Museum made a lot of sense,” said Amber Schiltz, Education Curator.
RDC staff have spent months setting up inside the museum to create a spooky experience for anyone who enters. With over fifteen interactive and terrifying scenes, there is bound to be something horrifying for everyone. “Just creating the scary sections at the museum has been a creepy experience so far, everyone here is ready for the opening night so the public can experience the scariness for themselves!” said Schiltz.
Night at the Haunted Museum will run nine nights in October, including October 2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 28, 29, and 30 and is located at 950 U Street, Gering, NE. Price of admission to the spooky museum will be $7 per person, cash only, and parents are encouraged to leave children 12 and under at home. RDC will also be selling scary t-shirts to those who make it through the museum for $15. Spooktacular will run Thursday October 22nd through Monday October 26th, and the price will be $6.50 per person. After attending Night at the Haunted Museum, guests will receive a $1 off voucher for admission to Spooktacular, and vice versa. RDC would like to thank the city of Gering for all their cooperation in the opening of this brand new spooky exhibit. RDC would also like to thank their new sponsors for the event: Next Generation Tax & Accounting, LLC, Julie’s Antiques, Menards, Lara & Prouty Family, Joe Dally The Mixing Bowl, First State Bank, Gering Auto Sales, Logoz, Island & Huff PC, LLO & Vertex.
