We are hosting an evening of faBOOlous fun for the whole family at the aSCAREium on Saturday 30 October from 17h30 until 20h00. From exploring creepy critter corners to meeting mad scientists in the lab, families with young children are sure to have a frightfully entertaining evening while encountering the fantastical creatures that call the Aquarium their home.

BoOOOok now.

How about a bug-eating contest or bobbing for apples to get the adrenalin going? Be left breathless by our magician’s conjuring, or by what hides around the next corner. To keep tummies from rumbling, beetle juice and swamp brew will be served, and whether you decide to trick or treat, there will be something sweet for everyone.

Visitors are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild and dress the part, as prizes are up for grabs.

The fun does not stop once the clock has ticked past 20h00!

Once the bells have tolled for those who have to go home, the Aquarium will host a sleepover for families with children of all ages, who can enjoy specially themed arts ‘n crafts, more tricks and treats, and a movie to make your spine tingle. And when it is off to bed, unroll your sleeping back and drift off to dreamland under the watchful eyes of the ragged-tooth sharks.

For an evening of safe fun for the whole family BOOOOk online or buy your aSCAREium tickets at the Aquarium from 17h30 on 30 October 2010.

    Just wondered if members still had to pay the full rate of R120 for the scareium?  or is there a discounted rate for them?
