A computer hacker means some changes for the Oklahoma Aquarium’s annual Halloween events.
A glow in the dark sleepover, originally set for October 27th, has been rescheduled for November 10th due to registration problems created by a website hack.
HallowMarine is still scheduled for October 27 – 31, 6:30 to 9:00. The event features a glow in the dark treasure hunt, highlighting the mysterious ability of some marine creatures to fluoresce or glow. That is just one activity for kids to enjoy in their costumes and new this year, a Pee-Wee Pirate Zone, with games and activities for kids 5 and under.
The Aquarium will also boast a giant pirate bounce house, other inflatables, carnival style games and the popular mermaid and pirate dive shows. No Halloween event would be complete without a lot of candy, and kids will find plenty as they trick-or-treat throughout the exhibit areas.
The new Extreme Amazon exhibit, sponsored by the American Electric Power Foundation/Public Service Company of Oklahoma, is nearing completion and will be viewable by HallowMarine guests.
The re-scheduled sleepover gives tweens and teens, 12 to 17 years old the chance to spend the night in the Aquarium. The evening will feature a glow in the dark tour examining fluorescence, bioluminescence and other phenomenon of our aquatic world. Thanks to the generosity of the Hardesty Family Foundation, the cost of this sleepover is reduced to $20 per person. Youth sleepover guests may also submit a letter of recommendation from a teacher or mentor describing why they are deserving of this fun, yet educational opportunity to waive the participation fee.
Tickets for HallowMarine are $10 for adults and $7 for children, with a $1 discount for members, a discount from regular Aquarium admission. For more information, please visit www.okaquarium.org
