Superduper fans

Before Midnight Madness, there is the Mexican Madness Dinner at the Arizona State Museum. Start off the night with good food and a little Mariachi music for a small fee of $12 or $6 for kids.


The Wildcat estimated for a family of four (three adults, one child) it would cost $548 to complete every activity, not including the souvenirs, beer and pair of corduroy shorts bought for dad so he doesn't make you look bad.
