About Experiment #10: Our First Geyser Show
In November of 2005, for the first time ever, we put together a multi-bottle fountain of Coke & Mentos here at our home base in Buckfield, Maine. We performed the stunt as part of the Early Evening Show, Buckfield's answer to the Tonight Show.

So check out this very first appearance of the EepyBird Coke & Mentos guys, complete with the live audience reaction. And if you're ever near Buckfield, Maine, come check out the Early Evening Show at the Oddfellow Theater!

How Does This Work?
What makes the soda fly out of the bottle? Will you explode if you drink Coke and eat Mentos? Click here to find out!

Try This at Home!
Yes, you can try this at home! You can get your own Coke & Mentos Kit, which includes nozzles just like the ones we use, or you can click here to learn how you can do it with stuff from around your house.

Experiment #10: Our First Geyser Show by Fritz Grobe (the short one) and Stephen Voltz (the tall one). Music by AudioBody. Filmed live at the Oddfellow Theater in Buckfield, Maine. Production assistance from Mike Miclon.
