Face your fears this half term! (21st – 31st October)
This half term we are inviting you to face your fears and discover an underwater world filled with predators and creepy creatures.
Visitors will be able to learn all about the most fearsome creatures in the sea; from sharks, to the deadly stonefish there are some amazing predators to behold.
You can test your nerve at the scare station, are you brave enough to put your hands in the mystery boxes? Will it be a trick or a treat?
Join one of the amazing talks and learn about the scariest creatures in the deep. Visitors can meet the reptiles and there will be chances to get hands on with some of the aquarium’s friendlier creatures at the Rock pool Encounter.
The week of fear culminates on Halloween with a night at the A-scarium! The aquarium will be open late into the night when visitors can join a candle lit tour of the aquarium, with some surprises along the way.
Not only will the aquarium be decked out in Halloween themed decorations there will also be a fancy dress competition for visitors and staff will also be dressed in full costumes as well to help visitors get into the spooky spirit!
