Are You Afraid of the Dark… Skies?
After meeting your ghoulish guide at the Saturn Gate next to the Steele Visitor Center, you will be taken on a spine-tingling tour of Lowell Observatory’s grounds while you hear stories of our spookiest tall tales and unexplained happenings. Who dwells in the collapsed remains of tunnels hidden beneath the observatory? What was the eerie red substance seen leaking from Percival’s final resting place some years ago? Walk through our creepy woods, explore our most legendary historic sites, and be ready for some startling scares! Are you brave enough to come face-to-face with the legends of Lowell’s past? What are those eyes glowing in the bushes? Watch your back—you never know who (or what) might be following!
