The world's largest aquarium is transforming into Georgia A-Scary-Um for its fifth annual Halloween event. Georgia Aquarium invites guest to join its spider crabs, batfish and "ghost jellies" for a spooky good time.
The festivities will kick off Oct. 30 with the Aquarium's debut of a Halloween sleepover. This new treat allows guest to spend the night in the monstrous Ocean Voyager exhibit. Participants will gain a new perspective on aquatic life through tales combining modern scientific knowledge with ancient folklore, and learn how legends of sea monsters and mermaids originated and how they apply in today's world.
Finally, guests will discover aquatic shape shifters and other species that roam the oceans today that may sound like myth. After-dark views of the world's largest exhibit's otherworldly viewing windows are sure to impress. The sleepover is $95.95 per person and $86.95 for members plus tax.
Guests who visit Georgia Aquarium on Halloween are in for a fa-BOO-lous time. The Aquarium will be decorated and filled with music in the spooky spirit of Halloween. Up to two kids in costume will receive free admission with each paid adult. Trick-or-treat candy stations will be in each gallery and Halloween-themed arts and crafts tables and costume contests will be taking place throughout the day. Radio Disney will also join in the celebration from 1 - 3 p.m. for more music, contests and giveaways.
Georgia A-Scary-Um is proud to once again partner with Green Halloween®, a non-profit community initiative to create and provide healthier and more Earth-friendly options to families by teaching them about eco-friendly and animal friendly Halloween candy. Green Halloween® products will be served at trick-or-treat stations throughout the Aquarium.
