How lucky are we in Boulder City that Tom Devlin and his family picked our town to call home?!?
We’re thrilled to share that Tom is moving into the former Alpaca Imports location (1603 Boulder City Pkwy.) for what will be a whole new attraction and another great reason to visit Boulder City!
If you’ve never been to Tom Devlin’s Monster Museum – well, we can’t understand why! He’s a terrifically talented movie make-up and creative special effects artist who’s worked on lots of different television and movie productions. The museum has become an established Boulder City destination for spooky fun times (and costumes!) over the past year-and-a-half it’s been open.
But now, Tom is creating another 3,000 square foot family fun center that will include two full sized dinosaurs that the kiddos can actually ride, along with a fossil dig and indoor playground. (That’s enough to make me want to be 9 years-old again! Do we think a 50 year-old can ride a dinosaur and not lose her dignity?)
Lola, Tom’s wife and business partner says, “We get a lot of families visiting the Monster Museum. Sometimes the younger kids are too scared to enjoy the experience. Having two young kids of our own, we really wanted to create a place where going to work with mom and dad was something they could really look forward to.”
The business is scheduled to open on Saturday, January 26th! Hours will be daily from 10am – 5pm. We’ll see you there!
