Bone Shaking Fun With Skeletons this Halloween

This is the week – Halloween is here!  Have you heard enough about it yet, or can you stand a little more?

If you’re not into the whole HHN freak out at Universal, and yet Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party doesn’t quite do it for you either, here’s another option, Skeletons: Animals Unveiled!  It’s ‘under the wheel’ at the Orlando Eye complex and for sure it’s the real deal with over 40 exhibits featuring more than 400 real animal skeletons in poses and dioramas that will give you a whole new perspective (dare we say, um, the actual inside scoop?) on our friends in the animal kingdom.  Plus, the price of this one might not rattle your bones as much as those other options with current ticket prices at $19.99 per adult and $12.99 for kids ages 3-11.

Wondering why you should load up the car and take the family to go see a bunch of bones?  Here are just a few compelling reasons:

  • It will get you in the Halloween mood at a price point that won’t spoil the fun (like all that bad stuff that the yummy Halloween candy does to your teeth. . .)
  • FREE parking, plus it’s easy to get to located right off International Drive at the Orlando Eye Complex
  • It’s educational but in a way that the kids might not realize they are actually getting educated – make sense?  It will.
  • There’s a two headed cow on display, and you know you’re curious about it, right?

I could say more but instead I’m going to show you some fun pictures I snapped during my visit a few months ago. Mind you I was with an adult group and every one of us thought it was a blast, so I can only imagine what taking a group of kiddies would be like, but I’m guessing they’d say things like “awesome!” and “euwww” (meant in a good way. . .) and “that’s what my dog looks like under the skin?”  Yeah, it’s way cool.  See for yourself.

Ever wonder what Skeletons do when the museum closes and the party begins?

This Centaur still can’t figure out what he is – man or horse, or both?
The skeleton cowboy was still havin’ a good ole’ time!
skeleton gator bones
I liked looking at this gator better than the real deal that creepy-crawled his way into my neighborhood one night.
Why? Because we just can’t miss a photo opp, right?

So this Halloween, try something different to get you into the spirit of the season.  It will certainly give you a new perspective of the 400 everyday animals and amazing creatures on display!  And oh, by the way.  Aren’t these the coolest attraction uniforms around?
