May The Fourth Be With You



To celebrate Star Wars on May the Fourth (be with you), visitors can experience a day of Sci Fi fun and excitement.

See what will happen to everyone’s favorite marshmallow critter if it were subjected to the conditions of deep space. Prepare to see these Peeps smashed, molded, exploded and more. Darth Vader would be proud!
