Join us on May 18 and 19 for the messiest weekend of the year at Orlando Science Center!
Mess Fest is back this year, featuring not only well-loved favorites but also new activities including three brand new mess zones that are bigger and messier than ever. Explore eight Mess Zones, including cosmic mess, Ice cream making, Splat-a-pult, and more! If you don’t make a mess, you’re not doing it right!
Plus, on May 19 only – meet The (Blue) Man Behind the Makeup, Eric de Lima Rubb, as he talks about the science, art, and MESS he experiences while performing in Blue Man Group at Universal CityWalk!
Hear from the Blue Man himself (minus the bald cap and the blue makeup) about playing with his food onstage, ask questions about the character, and stand back as Eric demonstrates iconic messy moments from the show.
Don’t miss these mess-tivities!
- Mess Mania Obstacle Course
- Alka rockets

*Some activities are weather permitting.
Plus, stop by The Hive: A Makerspace to get your own Mess Fest branded T-Shirt from Merchmakr!
