Two Oceans Aquarium members recently attended the Ascarium Creepy Critter Family Sleepover at the Aquarium. As is customary with our member sleepovers, they could experience the Aquarium after-hours, after all our day visitors had gone home. This exclusive opportunity is one of the highlights of our members’ calendars.
Delicious “worm-tinis”, “bug juice” and pumpkins filled with sweets awaited members' arrival. Alcohol and juice was kindly sponsored by SAB and Sir Juice.
Children dressed as their favourite characters and there were a number of fairies, butterflies, witches, Spidermen and even a He-Man!
Members set up camp in front of the I&J Ocean Exhibit, enjoying dinner with the fishes and exploring the Aquarium at their leisure.
Kids decorated a treasure chest to take home before watching the Creepy Critter Show hosted by Giraffe House. And boy, were they excited for the show! Werner, the owner of Giraffe House, brought along some fabooolous reptiles. We learnt more about corn snakes, bearded dragons, toads, tarantulas, bullfrogs and pythons.
Some parents and children were part of the show and thoroughly enjoyed being able to hold the snake and even kiss the bullfrog! No princes emerged.
Members then had yummy hot chocolate, marshmallows and Ghost Pops while watching a movie on the big screen.
Bed time was the highlight, as members could fall asleep while watching Yoshi the loggerhead turtle, the guitar fish, shoals of fish and rays swim past.
Breakfast in bed was served the next morning – scrumptious yoghurt parfait, filled croissants, sweet and savoury muffins, as well as fresh juices and hot coffee.
