Great Hall for ArcAttack!

Great Hall for ArcAttack!

Posted to the World Maker Faire Daily:

The members of ArcAttack! were on site Wednesday to begin to set up. The Great Hall at the NY Hall of Science is going to be an amazing venue for their musical Tesla coils. The Great Hall, which is over 100 feet tall, was built for the 1964 World’s Fair as a cathedral to science.

As you can see from the photo, we have a 20-foot tall platform to elevate two large Tesla coils. Two smaller Tesla coils will be on floor level.


ArcAttack! will be performing twice an hour during Maker Faire.
