Celebrate Halloween with unexpected tricks and magical new treats at the Museum of I-Scream.
Chicago’s Museum of Ice Cream has transformed for a month-long October celebration leading up to Halloween. The immersive experience, which spans 13,500 square feet of The Shops of Tribune Tower, opened in July of this year and features 14 interactive installations reimagined just for the Windy City.
In addition to the famed sprinkle pool, a mini-golf course, and a plethora of ice cream-themed features and snacks the museum will now offer limited-time activations, exclusive festive flavors, and trick-or-treating including “the most shocking, unexpected tricks and the absolute sweetest, magical treats.”
Running from September 30 through October 31, 2022, all ages and flavors are invited to dress up and rediscover what it’s like to be a kid again in the only Willy Wonka-style wonderland in the Midwest.
According to the official release “I-Scream visitors will receive an ice cream mask and treat bag to collect unlimited candy as they melt into a world of pink skeletons, happy jack-o-lanterns, and legen-dairy limited-time games, tricks, and treats!” Visitors will be greeted by a ringmaster upon arrival who will provide them with their trick-or-treating bags before directing them to cauldrons full of candy situated throughout the museum.
The Instagram-famous Sprinkle Pool has been given a new look and turned into a haunted graveyard playing spooky Halloween classics where guests can enjoy a Witches Brew cocktail or join a Monster Mash dance party.
There is also a new twist on the Museum’s iconic ice cream hot dog which now comes in the form of a vegan black cherry-flavored hot dog.
Additional tickets can bag visitors experiences like entry to the I-Scream apothecary lab where the mad scientists behind the creation of MOIC’s pumpkin spice soft serve will be waiting or to a fortune teller’s corner where people’s fortunes can be glimpsed via ice cream-themed tarot cards made for the museum.
Running through Monday, October 31, The Museum of I-Scream will be open from 11 am – 7 pm on Mondays, from 11 am – 6.30 pm on Thursdays and Fridays, from 9:30 am – 6:30 pm on Saturdays, and from 9:30 am – 7:30 pm on Sundays.
Tickets can be reserved at museumoficecream.com/book-chicago and range from $36 to $49.
