Oh no! Your dirigible has gone wildly out of control, and is heading towards the ground! Will the passengers survive?
Using a variety of materials provided, make a safe container to hold a raw egg to protect it as we drop it from a great height!

11pm-12pm Mischief Making Class
Here is your opportunity to cause trouble! We will misdirect, fool, and otherwise prank the rest of the world’s fair! Join us as we trick passers-by, post confusing signs around the hotel, and generally cause a kerfuffle.

12pm-1pm Jewelry Making
Come make beautiful steampunk jewelry to compliment your costumes, or to wear out in the real world for a touch of the lovely, yet strange.

Device creation is back! Come and turn a variety of tiny doodads, gizmos, and gadgets into a robot, raygun, or electromagnoshielderizer. Please bring a parent or other adult.

Show up at 5pm to get your hunt list, and run throughout the hotel, taking photographs to try and win a spectacular prize! Check in/scoring begins at 7:30. Your hunt will be more difficult than the Kid’s Scavenger Hunt, so put on your scavenging hats!
