You know what’s a good way to celebrate the beginning of Easter? Take hundreds of carbonated beverages, mix them with a bunch of Mentos, and watch the chaos ensue. That’s what educational group Mad Science did for Alton Towers Resort in the UK. [The Telegraph]

You’ve either seen the Mentos and Coke experiment on YouTube or you’ve destroyed your kitchen trying it yourself. Wired has come up with a parlor trick that’ll surprise your friends with a delayed explosion time: Mentos, frozen in ice cubes.
