We may think of the aquarium as just a place for kids – but there’s an grown-up side to Vancouver’s underwater wonderland.
On October 27, you can experience the Vancouver Aquarium’s truly adult environment at its After Hours event. Grab an alcoholic drink, and wander through the displays of sharks, bats, and caimans – all the spooky sea life will be at their scariest and best for this Halloween themed event. Aquarium staff will be hosting special programs and talks for the event, and you won’t need to jostle your way through the kids to get a good view.
In addition to the usual Aquarium experiences, there will also be a number of Halloween-themed extras. From costumed dive demonstrations to a creepy critter corner and pumpkin display, there’s something frightening and fun for everyone.
This After Hours event is the last one of 2016, so be sure to get your tickets before it sells out. Admission is 19+ and all tickets must be bought in advance online.
