Dr. Menace's Lab
Explore the lab and inner workings of a mad scientist at work and play. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the genius of Dr. Chester Menace, renowned scientist responsible for creating the coexistence of humans and zombies through his invention of the “Disinterredpreter.” Vials, bile, syringes...a menagerie of Dr. Menace’s magical, mystical, and mysterious maniacal minutiae will be on exhibition. Just be careful not to touch or ingest any of the chemical waste, hazardous materials, and dangerous tools.
Get down and dirty at Dr. Menace’s “Feel-Like-a-Zombie” station. Roll up your sleeves and stick your hands inside covered buckets to feel the brains, veins, and membranes that comprise a zombie’s diet. What does a human heart feel like? Can you decipher whether you are grasping a fingernail or tooth? We dare you to test your zombie senses and survival skills.
