What you can expect:

Fun & Games 

The night will commence with welcome drinks for the parents, while kids enjoy a variety of games, arts & crafts, entertainment, and many other cool activities! Parents - bring along your kids' gifts and stick them under the tree - but remember to put their name on it! 


Scuba Claus is back! 

Soon after, Scuba Claus will pop out from an unexpected place, signalling the beginning of the highly anticipated gift handouts (remember to bring along presents for your kids). Once all that excitement is over, we’ll settle down and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a movie on our big screen.

Then, when the yawns start to appear, we’ll crawl into our sleeping bags and drift off to dreamland, while all the other amazing animals in the exhibit, keep a watchful eye over us. Dream of a magical underwater wonderland and when the sunlight starts to trickle through the water, rise and shine to meet the new day... A yummy breakfast will be ready for you to enjoy while watching the fish swim past.
