Buoys and ghouls, dress up in your favourite costume, bring along your sleeping bags and picnic dinner for the evening and join us for a fabooolous night at the Aquarium. The aSCAREium family sleepover is taking place!

Get ready for an evening of spooktacular fun for the whole family at the Two Oceans Aquarium’s aSCAREium members-only sleepover on Saturday 19 October 2019, from 18h30.

Imagine being welcomed by two friendly witches before going on a spooky walkabout through the Aquarium as you've never seen it before ... Some tricks and treats mark the start of our aSCAREium treasure hunt, complete with puzzles and clues that will bring all the thrills. Once all the treasure has been collected, a dazzle of delight will await at our mini-circus (we're not gonna spoil the surprise) against a sharky backdrop ... Can you guess where that is?

Be sure to dress the part; fabOOOlous prizes are up for grabs. 

After the shenanigans, if you're still wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, you can usher in sleep time with a fun movie before you travel to dreamland. 

Families with younger children will have a frightfully entertaining and fascinating evening, while discovering the fantastically fabulous creatures that call the Aquarium their home.
