Ever dream of sleeping with the fishes? Well, now you can on Friday, May 5 beginning on Friday, May 5 at 6 p.m. and concluding on Saturday, May 6 at 10 a.m. Families are invited to bunk down among the sharks, fish, jellies and other creatures as the Aquarium hosts a fun Family Sleepover. It's open to children ages 5 & older, with an accompanying parent or caregiver over age 18. The cost is $90 for adults and $80 for children (($75 & $65 Aquarium members) and advance reservations are required. Reservations fill up fast so if you are interested it is best to register as soon as possible!
The fun begins after "check-in" at 6 p.m. with a tasty dinner of chicken tenders, fries and penne. Afterward, expect a fun- and fact-filled evening that will include a behind-the-scenes tour of the Aquarium, an IMAX® movie, snacks and themed crafts.
"Lights out" is at 10 p.m. Participants sleep in sleeping bags (BYOSB) throughout the Aquarium galleries. Air mattresses are allowed for adults.
Breakfast the next morning is at 8 a.m., followed by a private seal show. You'll be on your way home by 9 a.m. on the 24th.
