Albuquerque Aquarium Sleep with the Sharks
ABQ BioPark Aquarium overnight events always sound great to me, although I’ve spent more time trying to avoid sharks than cozy up for the night with them.
The ABQ BioPark Aquarium sleepovers for all the family include activities such as games and crafts with supplies provided, and everyone visits the touchpool and can watch sea-themed movies in the theater. They also tell you all about the underwater critters and their night-time habits.
The next Aquarium Overnight with available spaces is on April 12, 2013.
The noctural adventure isn’t dirt cheap, but at $30 per person I think it’s a pretty good deal for such an unusual experience, and makes a great treat for kids – maybe for a birthday or other celebration. (And hey, it’s educational!) Albuquerque BioPark Society members receive a 10% discount.
Events start at 7 pm on the Friday night, and finish at 8 am on the Saturday morning – just in time to go get fish tacos or lox and bagels for breakfast
Registrations must be made well in advance as space is naturally limited – which is why I’m reminding you now so you can book in good time. An adult has to attend the sleepover with any children aged under 18. (Yeah, I know. You were just thinking about your next date night or wedding anniversary celebration and thinking “Geeze, 30 bucks overnight is cheaper than a baby-sitter!” Sorry, it doesn’t work like that.)
The next ABQ BioPark Aquarium Overnight events for 2013 are:
- April 12 – 13
- May 17 – 18
- August 23 – 24
- September 20 – 21
You can reserve online at the link above, or for all the details and to book a space call (505) 848-7180.
And let’s hope the sharks don’t snore…
Albuquerque BioPark Aquarium is located at 2601 Central Avenue NW.
