Daily Vacationer Jr: Calling All Superheroes

One of things that we love best about the Garden State Discovery Museum is their commitment to making their events as awesome as possible.  The dedicated staff are always coming up with fantastic ideas for special events that take experiencing the museum to the next level of fun and interaction.  Daily Vacationer Jr had an absolute blast at their annual Calling All Superheroes event, where superheroes of all ages gathered to practice their superpowers and help stop the villains  from taking over the museum!

The parking lot was place to learn to fly with various bounce houses taking visitors soaring to new heights, while the close by zip line was a popular place to enjoy some superhero speed.  Guests also got to fine tune their web slinging and wall smashing skills with silly string and cardboard bricks (POW! ZAP!).  Hands on crafts of masks, cuffs, and shields were available to design and put together.  We also enjoyed the novelty of creating your own comic strip.  Fun photo ops were everywhere with "head in the hole" comics and a large collection of grown up superheroes who never tired of stopping to pose and chat with guests
Everything was going well until it was brought to our attention that there were villains in the museum! Lex Luthor, Poison Ivy, Cat Woman, and Harley Quinn had been doing diabolical deeds throughout the exhibits (like leaving Kryptonite in the Dinosaurium and taking over the Farm Stand with Ivy), and it was time for the visiting superheroes to stop them!  After gathering in the theater to receive information and instructions, heroes were given flashlights to search the now dark museum for the villains and their henchmen.  Excited shouts and exclamations rang in the darkness as the bad guys were discovered and brought back to the jail.  (We will take the opportunity here to brag that, yes,  WE were the ones to capture Lex Luthor himself!)

Calling All Superheroes was a thoroughly fun and well-run event, from the delicious eats available (pizza and healthy snacks, as well as amazing homemade dessert creations) to the sense of humor and commitment to character from both the heroes and villains on staff.  A lot of great memories were made, and we definitely plan  on returning next year for another exciting evening.  Even playing in the regular exhibits was made extra special that night with everyone feeling confidant in their capes.  But, of course, you don't need to wear a cape to make the Garden State Discovery Museum extraordinary.  We believe a visit here is always anything but ordinary.

This year's Calling All Superheroes event is
Friday, June 9th from 6:30 to 8:30!
