Throughout the ‘Hulloween’ week, we will be running a packed series of events, with something designed for all ages.
Take part in our skull trail and look out for some of our scariest animals…. Can you find our red-bellied piranha, wolf eel, fishing spider or giant land snails?
You can also make your own sticky slime blood at our Explorers’ Den (from 11am to 4pm), get your face painted at the entrance to Cool Seas (11am to 4pm) and meet our 12 foot scary pirate in the Endless Oceans area at 10.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm.
Scatter feeds will take place at the Lagoon of Light at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm giving you get the chance to see some of our smaller animals being fed.
For those of our visitors who are interested in sharks, why not enjoy our dive show at 2pm. This is when our divers go into the tank and feed our sharks.
There will also be the opportunity to get up close with some of our animals including starfish and velvet swimmer crabs in our Discovery Corner sessions at 10.30am, 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm and 4.30pm.
You can also finish off your visit with a visit to our brand new sea themed soft play area, then walking through Europe’s deepest viewing tunnel and enjoying a ride through our 10m tank in our famous glass lift.
And don’t forget, you pay for one day’s entry, then you can visit us for the rest of the year FOR FREE* with our Day Plus Pass. This pass allows you and those with you on the day of your visit to return free for a 12 month period. On your next visit after purchase, Day Plus Pass holders are required to attach a passport style photograph to the Day Plus Pass form and bring some form of additional photo ID (eg. a passport or driving licence) and this gets you in for free. It’s that simple!
Colin Brown, Chief Executive at The Deep said “We are really looking forward to half term and have put together a fantastic selection of activities to suit all ages, all based around a spooky theme to fit in with Halloween.”
