Fall Fest, North Jersey’s ultimate autumn adventure, debuts at Liberty Science Center on Sept. 28 – and it’s free with LSC general admission!
Everything you love about autumn – the mazes, the pumpkins, the apple cider – is here in Jersey City! Tired of regular old corn mazes? See if you can find your way out of our outdoor Spider Maze, a 4,000-sq-ft webby labyrinth that’s unlike any maze you’ve explored before! The 8-foot-tall haystack is the perfect climbing challenge for your big kids, while the hay maze is a blast for the little kids in your group. Everyone will enjoy meeting some furry friends at our weekend petting zoo!
Next, head inside to our indoor pumpkin patch, where you’ll get to choose and paint your own pumpkin (available on weekends for a $2 donation). The pumpkin experiments continue from there…use an endoscope to explore the slimy insides, and then see one smash open using liquid nitrogen!
And of course, it wouldn’t be an autumn day trip without some apple picking! But our version of apple picking is a little more extreme. On weekends, use a giant slingshot to knock apples out of a tree 50 feet away!
Be sure to check out our Instagrammable photo ops, and enjoy seasonal treats, like apple cider and pumpkin spice.
All Fall Fest activities are free with LSC general admission. The indoor pumpkin patch is available on weekends for a $2 additional donation.
