Captain NEO’s Hauntaquarium

 Fridays, October 18 & 25, Saturdays, October 19 & 26 and Sunday, October 27*

6 – 9 pm

With welcoming bandana-and-breeches-wearing stilt walkers and an indoor trick-or-treat treasure trail, Captain NEO’s Hauntaquarium is a warm, protected and not-so-spooky way to celebrate Halloween. This annual child-focused pirate party includes full Aquarium access as well as Nora the Explorer animal encounters, a DJ dance party, “campfire” stories, photo opportunities, slime-making, magic and more.

Adults accompanying children are welcome to attend in family-friendly Halloween attire as long as masks do not cover their faces and costumes do not impede traffic flow.

*Sunday, October 27, 6-9pm is a sensory-friendly night designed for families in need. Please only purchase tickets if this applies to your family.
