From the depths of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory the ghosts and goblins have awakened to welcome the 5th Annual Home Run Halloween. This year the spine-tingling excitement happens every Sunday in October, as well as Halloween day.
No ghouling around. Every Sunday and Halloween day will be spooktacular because kids dressed in costume receive a special Halloween mini-bat at the end of the factory tour and receive a pre-packaged bag of candy.
To make things even more spine-tingling, we’ve conjured a special treat for parents – no tricks here, kids get half-price admission every day in October when parents use the promo code BOO2020 when purchasing tickets at sluggermusuem.com. Advance tickets are required.
The World’s Largest Vampire Stake re-emerges for the fun. The 8-foot-tall stake was crafted here at the factory. Though the stake will have vampires shaking in fright, guests can pose with this marvel for a delightfully frightful photo-op. The stake fits right in with the theme of big things at the museum. The downtown attraction is already the home of The Big Bat (the largest in the world at 120 feet tall) and a giant ball and glove sculpture carved from limestone.
Guests can also learn about the spooky history of the building and hear about spine-tingling paranormal encounters employees have had in the museum during Ghost Stories of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.
“Ghouls just want to have fun,” said Anne Jewell, VP and Executive Director of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “We are thrilled to continue Home Run Halloween so families can come out and have a howling good time showing off their costumes with social distancing and other safety steps.”
Since re-opening its doors on June 11th, the museum has implemented additional safety precautions including social distancing floor graphics, reducing tour sizes, stepping-up sanitizing protocols and requiring masks for all guests and team members. Guests without masks can purchase them upon entering the museum for $1.00.
