The next Vancouver Aquarium “After Hours” adults-only event will take place Thursday, June 6, 2013 giving grown-ups the opportunity to explore galleries and exhibits without having kids in tow.
Jelly Invasion features over 15 species of jellyfishes hailing from various parts of the globe. These beautiful marine animals are more complex than you might think. Through our new exhibits and interactive displays, visitors can learn how jellyfish hunt, eat, protect themselves and reproduce without having hearts, brains, bones and eyes.
In addition to new exhibits, animals and interactive displays, the June After Hours event will feature Jelly Factor, a fun game show style interpretive program that will allow you to put your jelly knowledge to the test, and a Jelly Deli where the truly adventurous may even get the chance to snack on some jelly delicacies.
Get your hands wet in the Wet Lab, immerse yourself in a 4-D experience: BBC Earth’s The Great Salmon Run, and test your knowledge with Jelly Factor, a game show style interpretive program that puts your jelly knowledge to the test. There will also be a Jelly Deli, where the adventurous may get the chance to snack on jelly delicacies, and other food, beer, and wine* will be available for purchase throughout the evening.
After Hours takes place from 6:00pm to 10:00pm on Thursday, June 6th and from 7:30pm to 8:30pm you can enjoy a presentation of Culturing Jellies, a biologist’s perspective, which provides visitors with a deeper look inside the world of jellies. A full schedule of activities for the night is posted online.
Tickets are only available in advance, not at the door, and they’re selling quickly for $18 (members) and $25 (non-member). This is a 19+ event and photo ID is required for entry.
