Pumpkins & Piranhas @ Greater Cleveland Aquarium
October 27 @ 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until October 29, 2021
The Greater Cleveland Aquarium invites guests of all ages to get in costume—without a coat or an umbrella—and enjoy a warm, indoor and socially distanced Aquarium experience. The family friendly fun days are included with general admission ($19.95 ages 13+, $13.95 ages 2-12, $0 Passholders and guests younger than 2) and feature extended hours, underwater pumpkin decorations, costumed SCUBA divers, a small, take-home treat bag for children, pop-up animal enrichment and I Spy/trivia activities focused on some of the curious creatures residing at the Aquarium.
“Moray eels, poison dart frogs, sharks and many of the animals we might think are scary are really fascinating and a little misunderstood,” explains Education Coordinator Matt Debelak. “For example, piranhas aren’t really a danger to humans, but an Amazon River basin expedition story President Theodore Roosevelt penned about seeing hungry piranhas in a feeding frenzy gave the fish a fearsome reputation.”
The Aquarium asks that guests purchase advance general admission tickets to ensure entry. “We are deliberately limiting attendance and timing arrival to ensure social distancing,” explains Debelak. “We wouldn’t want to disappoint anyone who came out in costume on a sold-out day.”
