Half Term: What’s On?
Nevermind the trick this Halloween month, it’s all about the treats this half term at Blue Planet! Let’s cause a splash together this October and have fun with the whole family. There’s lots of exciting events happening beneath the waves and we can’t wait for you to join us!
Running from 20th October to 4th November, it’s time to test how easily you spook as you take part in an underwater trick-or-treat trail. You’ll have to polish up on your ocean facts this half term, because you’re going to be ghoulishly tested! You’ll have to face your Halloween fears as we put you to the ghostly test with a number of statements, and you have to decide whether it’s a trick (false) or a treat (true).
If that’s not enough, how about the chance to win an annual pass? Yeah, we like the sound of that too! Keep your eyes peeled – if you’re brave enough – to count how many skeletons are scattered around the exhibits and the winner will get their fins on an annual pass!
There’s going to be some fintastic photo opportunities too, so make sure you get following us on Instagram to tag us in your half term spooky selfies. You could pose by the science wall, which teaches you all about blood, bones, and bioluminescence, or get a snapshot at one of the many Halloween themed shows throughout half term.
The underwater fun doesn’t stop there, either. How about showing us your brave side this Halloween by diving with sharks? Swim alongside these magical aquatic giants and be close enough to even count their teeth!
Our Aquatheatre will give you presentations on all things deep blue sea. You’ll be able to sea scuba divers in the tanks and attend daily feeds and talks. You can check the talks and feeds schedule here.
So, what are you waiting for? Half term is nearly here! Get booking those tickets because you don’t want to end up with a trick instead of a treat this Halloween.
