A Cheshire Oaks attraction is to go weird and wonderful for Halloween.
Blue Planet Aquarium will be wicked and scarily spooky as it marks the season of celebration and superstition from Saturday, October 22 to Monday, October 31.
Any child arriving dressed in full fancy dress Halloween costume during the event will be admitted free of charge when accompanied by a full paying adult.
The aquarium is showcasing a host of horribly fascinating creatures from toxic toads and slimy eels to stinging scorpions and electric rays as part of its ‘Weird and Spooky’ event.
There will be the chance to discover how snakes and spiders shed their skins during special talks and shows which reveal how science fact is even wilder than science fiction.
Alongside the chilling cast of creepy creatures, visitors will also be able to take part in some wacky science experiments in the all-new ‘Mad Science Lab’ open daily from noon to 3pm.
As well as unbelievable experiments, there will be scary science games and the chance to get stuck into some of the gooiest substances anywhere on the planet.
Visitors will also be able to test their powers of perception with mind-bending optical illusions and crazy brain games.
The aquarium will be covered with cobwebs, packed with pumpkins and also filled with a number of scares and surprises lurking around every corner to help get everyone in the Halloween spirit.
The attraction is open daily from 10am.
