The wait is almost over!

The next big Discover AfterDark is coming. The Mad Scientist has retired but he asks you to Save the Date and make plans to get buzzy with us at The Big Deal!

For the first time in Amarillo, T.B.D. guests can witness an electrifying performance by ArcAttack!

ArcAttack is a performance art group that specializes in Tesla coil music, high voltage stunts and educational outreach and has been dubbed the world’s most dangerous rock band. Combining their love of rock music and their love of science, it’s a show you won’t want to miss! Check them out on You Tube and get ready to be “shocked”!


Guests will also enjoy live music by The Solano Project, heavy hors d’oeuvres from Joe’s Catering including Cheeseburger sliders, Truffle Fries, Fried Pickles, Italian Meatballs and more! Try delicious treats from Purple Flamingo Pops, and quench your thirst at the open bar with a chance to try out Amarillo’s newest Vodka from Bomb City Distillery.  Of course, no Discovery Center AfterDark event would be complete without shocking science demos and atomic activities to tantalize your mind! Try your luck with the shocking spheres, human circuit, and Bowling Ball Pendulum. Get a henna tattoo and make your own lava lamp, and then stop by the Red Carpet selfie station to capture those Big Deal memories.

Don’t miss out on this event like never before!

All food, drinks and activities are included in ticket price.
