Halloween After Hours at the Vancouver Aquarium

Halloween at Vancouver Aquarium's After Hours

Where: Vancouver Aquarium (845 Avison Way)
When: Wednesday, October 31, 2018 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm
Tickets: Tickets are only available online for $27 for members and $35 for non-members. Admission includes After Hours access to Vancouver Aquarium, including the Wet Lab, all galleries, the 4-D theatre and Vortex – Douglas Coupland’s radical new art installation.

With goblin sharks, skeleton shrimp, bloodworms, vampire squid, and even ghost gear, the ocean can be a scary place sometimes.

Under cover of night, get lost in the Aquarium’s galleries as you discover the intriguing nocturnal habits of more than 50,000 aquatic creatures. Come toe to webbed foot with an African penguin – arguably the best dressed in the animal kingdom – during the Penguin Walk. Then strut your stuff to the After Hours costume contest where masters of disguise compete for best costume, best group costume, and best aquatic-themed costume. (Keep your outfit ocean-friendly — please omit beads, glitter, and sequins.) The Adult Puppet Show, featuring a cast of naughty characters, is sure to make you cackle.

Grab a drink and a snack and don’t miss these other krill-er programs and activities:

  • Find out what goes chomp in the dark during the Secret Lives of Sharks program
  • Slither on by the Meet a Snake program and learn about these fassscinating creatures
  • Catch a screening of the exhilarating Shark: A 4-D Experience
  • Roll up your sleeves and get hands-on with marine invertebrates like blood stars, spiny sea urchins, and more in our Wet Lab…if you dare.
